Bah no Mike Redd. I agree Bosh should have made it over Redd, and Vince may be just slight margin a better player, but will win any popular vote in a landslide. My Bucks will just have to make noise in the Playoffs to get some respect..

Vince Carter is way better than Michael Redd IMO.

Vince Carter: 24.1 pts, 6.0 rbs, 4.5 assts, .444, .820, .352

Micheal Redd: 25.1 pts, 4.5 rbs, 2.9 assts, .441, .853, .406

Don't know if that is way better, to me they are very similiar except carter is better all around player and better attacking the rim, Redd is the superior shooter.. Redd is 2 years younger..

WHAT?!?!? No Knicks?!?!? bwuahhaahaa
Damn my boy Arenas didnt make it? Guess the guard spots are tough to come by this year, he's certainly having an allstar season. If he wasnt on the Wizards they'd be right there with the Knicks.

Thats why I said IMO :wink: I like Redd as well, (on Fantasy NBA team) but like you said I think Vince is a better all around player.

While you're entitled to your opinion, I think you're horribly wrong. I'd take Redd over Carter any day of the week and twice on game day. Redd's not afraid to have the ball in his hands to take the last shot, and doesn't fake injuries when he's not "feeling it". I don't think Carter's that great at attacking the rim, either. At least, not when he's knocked on his keester a couple times early. Oh, he can deliver rim-rocking dunks with the best of them. But put an elbow in his mug early, and he's shooting jumpers the rest of the night.

IMO, Carter should be forced to play with a skirt and blond wig on at all times. He's a girl playing a man's game.

Comparing carter to redd is dumb

Carter is a take it to the hoop sg with awesome leaping abilitys
Redd is a pure shooter, plain and simple

Both excellent at what they do but nothing alike

Now a comparison between Carter and Tmac

or Redd and Ray Allen i could see

It is the all star game they want the best and they want the exciting ball. Sure Redd dropping 3s is good but Carter doing crazy dunks is more exciting. Also, just giving respect to Bosh the Raptors are looking solid after that horrid start this season.

Stats can be over rated though...Honestly i think Andrew Bogut is doing a hell of a job moving from center to pf in the nba and still averaging like 9 ppg and 8 rpg now bad for a rookie when the offense goes throw tj ford and michael redd.

It's not dumb if you're wondering who the better player is. They have two entirely different styles of play, obviously, but asking yourself who you'd rather have on your team is a perfectly legit question.

Depends what team your putting them on. If i done already have a good reliable shooter im choosing carter a hard nose leaping sg who will draw the foul and go to the line alot of times. But if not Michael Redd by a mile for me.

Cmon, with the exception of a few bad years in Toronto Vince has always been one of the top players in the league. He had more highlight dunks on quality defenders than just about anyone in the league. How can you be soft and dunk all over good defenders? How many players led Toronto to the playoffs singlehandedly? Cmon, this guy got a bad rap for a few off years with miserable teams in Toronto. When he's healthy hes one of the top players in the league. Redd is a quality shooter that scores a lot but hes not a dominating player like Vince is.
