Steve Nash,Shaq

On Thursday the NBA announced the starters for the their all star game.Though there were many deserving players,there was one key left out.Two time MVP Steve Nash,who's playing possibly his best season yet was not voted in as a starter.As a proud Canadian,I'm outraged.He is the best player in the NBA right now,and he deserves to start that game.All star Tracy Mcgrady spoke with ESPN about this issue.He said he would give his spot away,if he could make Nash start.For a player of this caliber to say that,just out of respect for Nash is awesome.I think the fans of the NBA should be embarrassed

Also,something happened Thursday that's never happened before,I don't think in any sport.A player got voted in,without playing even 10 games.This person is Shaquille O'Neil.He has played almost no games this year,hasn't played necessarily well the past 2 years and is playing for a bad team right now.I understand he has a good fan base,but he's not a force like he was in Los Angeles.He won't make a difference in the all star game,he won't make a difference in Miami's season and personally,he won't make a difference ever.

All-star games are for the fans. If the the fans want Shaq there, he deserves to be there plain and simple. Every year in all major sports, deserving players are absent from all-star games, this will never change.
