sale ugg boots uk Unknowns get player votes to start NBAAll
Semi Ojeleye, Cedi Osman and Royce O have never started in an NBA game. Cameron Payne last played in April. Matt Costello has scored two points in his NBA career.
Yet somehow, someone in an NBA locker room apparently thought they should start in this year All Star Game.
Only 10 players will start in Los Angeles on Feb. 18, but 249 players roughly half the league were listed on at least one ballot in the player portion of the All Star selection process. And while some of the results might suggest not everyone took it seriously, making the list seemed to leave Philadelphia Amir Johnson genuinely moved.
pretty cool, man, Johnson said Thursday night when told that he got a vote. shows you how together we are. It just everybody against the world. It us against everybody. guys like Ojeleye, Osman, O Payne and Costello all got a vote from at least one player. Andre Iguodala, a recent NBA Finals MVP, did not.
The league is trying a new format for the All Star Game this season, using captains to pick the rosters. LeBron James and Stephen Curry, the leading overall vote getters from each conference, will pick their teams next week in a draft that isn slated to be televised. It part of the way the NBA is trying to make the game more competitive and relevant.
