The vote was fair! we were choosing our favorite player, you say hes not qualified but its our choice whos our favorite. your people made this rule that everybody can vote. So many nba players go to china to make money so china has a big market. On the otherside with china fans supports the nba so it helps the economy too! I dont see anything wrong with asian people voting for jeramy lin.

We need to check JL's birth certificate to see whether he is Chinese or American. If he is not American he should not be on the all-star team.

??? that comment is either ignorance or plain stupidity. So you're saying Dirk and all the other non-American players should not be on the All Star ballot?

Jeremy Lin all kidding aside will make the all-star team. The man from what some of my sources tell me have improved immensely from last year. He is turning many heads so far at the Houston workouts. He is faster, stronger, sees the court better, can go left well, finishing better, better shooting all around, better on "D" and passing well.

If he is American of Asian descent, perhaps we should leave him out of the all-star balloting. But Yao was Asian and he was an all-star seven times.

Jl could very well beat out Lawson and Westbrook.
Westbrook has a SG mentality more so than PG. Lawson is not as physical and do not make decisions as well as JL. The top PGs in the NBA are
CP3, Rajon, Deron Williams, Derek Rose, Nash, Wall but the thing is people like JL and when the votes counts are up he will surprised you.
He is going to be great in a young team and it is going to be exciting from what I have heard.

Same. Lawson is horribly underrated. I was also hoping the Lakers would have made a play for him too but that guy Nash should do just fine.=)

The only reason Lin might get an all star nod is because of his ethnicity and there's not a whole lot wrong with that especially if it's earned through his play. He still has many things to prove though before he can truly earn that spot.

Votes based on popularity alone. We all saw what happened with the chinese voters alone and Yao.

That may be true, however Lawson doesn't have no where near the popularity. These days its all about marketing. We have witnessed this time and time.
