San Antonio fans have you been voting for the Spurs players for the upcoming All-Star game which will be played in New Orleans? According to the latest, it is not looking good for San Antonio players. Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan are the representatives for the team and their votes have been lacking from years past.
As of January 9th, Tim Duncan is sitting in sixth in the front-court voting with 385,342 votes. Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and LaMarcus Aldridge are ahead of Duncan in that order. The before mention Kawhi Leonard is rounding out the top 15 frontcourt with just over 91,000 votes.
In the backcourt voting, a player that has seen limited action this season is leading in votes, that being Kobe Bryant. Tony Parker sits in seventh with 195,328 votes.
Kevin Durant is just behind LeBron James as having the most votes.
chances are that someone from the Spurs is still making the All-star team because they are one of the top 3 teams again and as of now 1st in west. I think even if they stick around at 3rd in western conference, I'd be surprised if there's nobody representing SA for the All-star game.
plus with injuries to other players, there are likely some deserving players that will take place, for example the ball hogger from LAL. I agree with ajd21 that it's a joke he's still getting votes when he only played 6 games this season so far and missing more games as it continues right now, even more of a joke when his Lakers are once again losing at this point.
@RachaelHoops still a chance the coaches vote in Parker or Duncan though.
The All-Star game is a joke. Kobe Bryant hasn't done jack squat this season, and is #1 in the backcourt?????????????
It just goes to show it's a popularity contest.
if kobe, paul and westbrook are still out tony might slide in as a sub or wildcard (although he could use the rest), and i can see tim being selected by the coaches.
and to add to the top part of Spurs chances, I'm referring to the coaches' voting in reserves of course.
