Is AV good enough to make the all star game?

    Maybe not, but it might not be as far off as we might think. After his first 20/20 game of his career, he will be 10.5/11.5 .75 blks and 1.5 steals. He is known for his defense, but he is now 4th in the league in rebounding, 2nd in the east only behind the starting center in Howard. If they take 2 centers, who is more deserving? Hibbert? Greg Monroe? McGee? Chandler?

    Most likely they dont take 2 centers, but as we get closer to the All Star game, I expect Andy to get some love from the National Media.

    They're supposed to take two centers, Andy should have a shot. THe problem he'll have is our schedule the next couple of weeks will make it quite tough to get wins.

    Andy wont need wins, just stats and respect. Get the ppg up to 12 and the rebound up to 12 and he actually has a great shot.

    Andy's definitely in the discussion this year, but Chandler's shooting percentage is currently 70%, which is pretty sick. Andy's shooting 49% which is below his career average. Andy with 10.4 PPG 11.5 RPG, Chandler with 11.0 PPG 10.1 RPG, so no big difference there... both guys averaging a double double, both great defenders (Chandler was second team all-defense last year; Andy was second team all-defense the year before), Andy with a few more steals and Chandler with a few more blocks. Neither team has a great record, though we have overachieved while NY has been a big disappointment, so that's to be considered as well.

    I hope he gets the nod. He really does deservce it. He's more than the stat line he is putting up, even though those numbers are pretty damn respectable at this point.

    Hes certainly playing well enough to get the nod from the coaches I think Hell, even the super-homer Celtics announcers were raving about him. It would be hilarious to see him hustling, roughing other guys up while everyone else is coasting through the game trying to jack up threes.

    I'll never forgive AV for that junk he threw up at the end of Game 3 in the 2007 Finals. Cost us the game and the chance to compete in the series.

    Are you serious? Aside from Lebron, Varejao is by far one of the biggest reasons we even went to the Finals. Winning game 3 would have only meant the series ended in 5 games instead of a sweep.

    Really? You honestly can blame losing a series on one shot in the third game?

    Literally nobody in history will try as hard as Varejao to get rebounds and hustle plays in an all-star game. It's gonna be great to see

    Andy may be a close second, though.

    edit: oops, I missed where you said "in an all-star game", but Rodman did have 13 rebounds in 25 minutes in an all star game.

    I'd love to see it but I think people will prolly vote Hibbert over him.

    He deserves it, but he would need someone in the national media to get behind him. Get Bill Simmons to write an article about him, and he has a shot.

    Its probably going to be Dwight/Hibbert. With overrated Noah getting way more votes than he actually deserves.

    The good news is that Varejao should get the coaches' pick before Noah based on their play this season.

    Andy has a very little chance to make it. And rightfully so. Roy Hibbert's team is winning. It should go to him.

    Maybe if we had a little better record, but we don't.

    The all star game is in Orlando this year.

    Some people think that there is no way Dwight gets traded before the Allstar game because the Magic don't want Dwight to come home like that for the Allstar game.
