Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green and Gerald Wallace Are All On The All-Star Ballot

 

Is it too early to start thinking about the All-Star game? Absolutely. Is it too early to start laughing at the league’s ballot? NEVER.

If you want to go vote (extremely prematurely) for the players who will represent the Eastern and Western Conferences, you can do so here. Celtics included on the ballot: Rajon Rondo (for those who aren’t paying attention to the NBA this year and have missed him missing time), Jeff Green (fair, but not particularly likely) and…Gerald Wallace, no doubt due to the dearth of front court talent in the East.

It doesn’t particularly matter who is on the ballot, of course — coaches can choose whomever they want, and fans don’t generally screw up the starters too badly.

Just be careful who you vote for because under the new CBA, players who are voted in twice as starters while still on their rookie deals are eligible for more money on a max contract. It’s weird to say for a game that’s little more than a dunk contest every year, but playing in the All-Star Game actually matters.

Not that the new rules are likely to affect anyone in Boston. Unless Jared Sullinger or Kelly Olynyk take a massive leap over the next couple years, no Celtic on a rookie deal is looking at a max contract anyway. But for youngsters like Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis, All-Star voting over the next couple of years could actually be pretty huge.

It’s also likely that, for the first time since 2007, no Celtic will represent Boston. Jeff Green has made the most compelling case thus far, averaging 16.5 points per game and a rather staggering 38% from 3-point range. But with LeBron James, Paul George, Chris Bosh, Roy Hibbert and Al Horford (should I keep going?) all competing for spots on the Eastern Conference front court, it’s tough to imagine Green getting in without a pretty major explosion in the next couple months.

    This poses a good question. Say LeBron was in Rondo's shoes and also had an uncertain return date. He'd make the team right?

      He would. Yao I think it was…was injured all year and made the team anyways.

    Considering Rondo led the league in triple doubles in just 3 months of action last year, I see no reason why he can't make the all-star team is he shows up in December.
