Five Pistons on All-Star Game ballots
Looking at the ballot I couldn’t help, but laugh at a few names. My favorite is the Grizzlies’ Allen Iverson listed on the guards ballot in the Western Conference. AI fans better vote him into the starting lineup because you know he won’t come off the bench.
Ben Wallace is the one Piston name missing that is likely deserving of being on the ballot. But these things are clearly made well in advance of the season starting, but Wallace fans can still write in ‘Big Ben.’
All-Star voting has begun on NBA.com. Fans can also vote through text messaging by texting a player’s last name from their phone to MYNBA (69622). This season’s All-Star game is on Feb. 14, 2010 and will by played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas and is expected to draw more than 80,000 fans, the largest number ever to witness a live basketball game.
