  • so guys, we're gonna talk.

  • All star later in the show because the starters were revealed in the East.

  • Kyrie Bradley Beal Backcourt starters.

  • Katie Yanis, Embiid Front court starters.

  • Kevin Durant earned team captain in the West.

  • LeBron is the captain.

  • He's joined in the front court by Yokich and Hawaii.

  • And in the backcourt, we've got Steph Curry and Luca Dantchev Luca barely edging out Damian Lillard for that final starting spot.

  • Now the players and the media vote head Dame ahead of Dante Dante, so I just want to say that again.

  • The players and the media voted for Lillard ahead of Lucca, but the fan vote counts for 50%.

  • So that is what propelled Luca into the starting lineup.

  • Meanwhile, current NBA players and the media panel they account for 25% each.

  • So Richard are the fans disrespecting Dame?

  • Are they the ones that got it right?

  • No.

  • And it's hard.

  • You're not disrespect game.

  • Well, you know what I'm saying?

  • You're not disrespecting game by having Luca Luca's one of the stars in this league without a doubt.

  • So there is no lose lose situation.

  • There's no win win.

  • I will say this.

  • These are the times where everybody was the reason why we have, AH, media vote and a player vote because people were getting frustrated by what the fans were doing.

  • This is a great situation here.

  • Will.

  • Dame Lillard has had a better season.

  • The players see it, the media see it.

  • And now the fans are like again.

  • Luca is one of the next superstars.

  • He's 22 years old, trade young with the starter last year in the All Star Game.

  • You want to see these young stars and young stud, but ultimately is dame or deserving?

  • Yes, yes, name is more deserving, but you're not losing anything by having Luca Donkeys as a starter in the All Star Game.

  • His numbers, they're that good.

  • They're just not having a great season.

  • Yeah, and and that's one of things.

  • One of the things I was gonna add, what you're saying.

  • Portland is fourth in the West.

  • Dallas is what, 10th in the West.

  • So I mean, that matters, I think players.

  • So if you think you know Dame Lillard is playing the best basketball you see the numbers are similar, but his team is playing better basketball So he's putting up these numbers on a better in a better situation and and their fourth in the in the west of your saying Lucas playing Lucas basketball, triple doubles and all but their tents.

  • And I say to this, the only unfair thing that for for for dame that he has against him is Luca has a country of Serbia in his corner.

  • You're not gonna win that.

  • That reminds me, RJ, I'm gonna take you back.

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, you're not gonna You're not gonna lose it.

  • I mean, you mean has a country behind him in support.

  • So, you know, when it comes to giving 50% to the fans and you're talking about China voting for Yeah, you have no chance, Lucas a darling, they love him.

  • He's great basketball in the States.

  • So he has fans there.

  • Plus, is his country his country?

  • And so that's that's, you know, So that's, you know, that's just how it's gonna be until the until the rules change.

  • Look, we always say about some of the stuff like that.

  • It's not a popularity contest.

  • This is a popularity contest.

  • This is literally what it is.

  • So yes, I think there is something to the fact that the MBA let's all star be for and about the fans.

  • We, the media, you guys, players have votes and other things that come down the pike.

  • Whether it's all in b A, whether it's for awards, this is actually just a popularity contest.

  • So there is something to the fact that hey, these guys are the most popular and they move in front.

  • But I would say E was just gonna say that.

  • I hope the fans.

  • Maybe it's because they play in the Western Conference and more late night games.

  • I hope more fans start paying attention to what Damian and the Trailblazers air doing because C.

  • J.

  • McCollum is out.

  • Yousef Nurkic is out, and he is lifting that team, not by himself.

  • But he's doing the heavy lifting into fourth place.

  • And that, to me, deserved the All Star vote.

  • Just I just want to say this.

  • I think you know the fans is the All Star Weekend is for the fans like you said.

  • But we as players, that is one of the goals.

  • As as a player you get, you get bonuses and all that to be an All Star.

  • That's saying you're playing the best basketball and you deserve to be in the All Star Game or an All Star starter.

  • And, like you said, Dame deserves to be a starter.

  • Unfortunately, it's pretty much in the hands of the fans.

  • That's just how it's been.

  • There's been situations like that before.

  • We've heard it, so it's just an unfortunate situation.

  • But we get toe kind of dictate who wins the Rial Awards later in the season.

  • So I guess it depends on how you look at.

  • I mean, we want that kicker from the shoe company from all of our other sponsors because that that little extra million to 5500 means something.

  • So that's why these guys are kind of It just depends 25,050.

  • My bad.

  • I'm talking about for those guys, not for me, bro me, But I'm just saying those that means something to these guys.

so guys, we're gonna talk.
