I get your point, but you should consider the plus-minus rating for what a guy brings to the team besides just the traditional stats. I think it does a pretty accurate job in the long run of judging the effectiveness of player.
Anytime you use humans to make decisions you are for sure going to be dealing with a bias human brain. Some professionals may very well do a better job then us fans I agree. But NBA players will still get slighted I believe. If it were me, I’d leave it up to statatitions to come up with a formula that combines records, Plus/minus, and traditional stats to pick the top 24 players to compete in the all star game. This way there is a set standard up front that you must meet to be considered one of the top NBA All Stars. There would be much less controversy every year about certain players being snubbed.
However, I also admit that this probably would not be as successful as their current system overall. Im willing to bet ratings would possibly decrease due to less fan participation. So I kind of understand why they do it this way. Me personally, Im a fan of doing things right, all the time. For instance, It annoys me when Jay Bilas complains on television about how long the ref replay reviews take…He whines about how it takes away from the atmosphere of the game…Hes probably right, but I dont care. I want the right call made, and I dont mind waitng a few extra minutes so they get in right.
