Timmy is an All-Star (again)
The NBA All-Star Game starters were announced today, and it should come as a surprise to no one that Tim Duncan will be a starter.
Duncan received about 10% fewer votes than Kevin Garnett, but about 10% more than Carmelo Anthony and almost 13% more than Dirk Nowitzki.
I was a bit surprised that Tracy McGrady was picked over Allen Iverson to join Kobe Bryant as starting Guard. Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker were both in the hunt, finishing 5th and 6th respectively, after Steve Nash.
Francisco Elson finished 6th in voting for Center!
This reminds me of when I was a kid, watching Spurs games at the HemisFair Arena, sitting in the stands and literally punching out a hundred or more All Star ballots for George Gervin and Larry Kenon. Do Spurs fans still stuff the ballot boxes? How else would you explain Elson’s votes?
