All-Star Voting Farce

Let me get one thing straight. There is no reason whatsoever for Kobe Bryant to be in the All-Star game this year. The fact that he is first in the voting is ridiculous. What Kobe being an all for the 18th time will do is blur the historical picture that defines him, even if it's a slight change. He will now have yet another undeserved all-star appearance, after playing in just 6 games two seasons ago, 35 games last season, and 30 so far this season. Kobe will have three additional undeserved all-star appearances, counting these years.

He's shooting his lowest FG % of his career at a pathetic 34.8%.

In comparison, Jordan has only been an all-star 14 times. In his last season however, he shot 44.5% from the field, and actually played 67 games. He earned his appearances, whereas Kobe has not.

This isn't to compare Kobe to Jordan, but it suggests that future generations will perhaps place Kobe in a better light than he really was. No, he's not a 18 time all star. He should be remembered as a 15 time all star.

Credit is given where credit is due.

you are fucking retarded, almost as much as that germany janny in /nba/ general

its a popularity contest, he's popular, he gets in, stay mad

were you bitching when Magic got voted in 92 too?
>>
>>64750187
You think OP was old enough to remember? Or if he was even born?
>>
>>64750187
It shouldn't be about fucking popularity. This is a statistical game. Everyone in the game knows Kobe is old and decrepit and can't play anymore, so placing him on a stage is an embarrassment to the NBA.
>>
>>64750201
It's a game for the fans and we wanna see Kobe you fucking autistic. It's not hard to understand
>>
>>64750218
that's kinda mean man, you can't just say shit like that.

Kobe has only 1 MVP though. That will severely damage his reputation in the minds of future b-ball enthusiasts.
>>
>>64750252

MVP, another popularity / trend award.

If it wasn't, LeBron would win it every single year. Take him away from his team, they wouldn't make the playoffs.

Kobe, at the time, was fighting rape charges from 2003, and it was a while before Kobe's reputation recovered.

That lying cunt cost Kobe millions, she should be in jail desu.
>>
>>64750252
That's my point. These stats matter. From a historical perspective, it's dumb to just hand him another all-star stat. He shouldn't be in the game at all, he's going to get trashed by real players.

>>64750218
If it's for the fans, give them the best game. That's not with Kobe.
>>
>>64750291
But it will be more entertaining with Kobe. Did you complain when Vince Carter gave up his starting spot for MJs last game

this entire season is Kobe's last hoorah. Kobe IS the league right now and people want to see him one last time

This, while OP is right in that All-star voting is a farce and he by all rights shouldn't have nearly as many "all-star" appearances you could argue he was shorted an MvP or two even because of his tank in popularity
