If the C's are on a 60 win pace by the break they will have 4 all stars, but I actually believe it will be Big Al who will be the odd man out.  With the offensive emergence and continued growth of Tatum and Brown, he's going to have the least "sexy" numbers.  He'll be the one making the most personal sacrifices for the offense. 

So I'm gonna go with Kyrie, Hayward, Brown, Tatum.

Given his reputation and his age I think Hoford would be an easy choice for coaches who like that he plays "the right way" and know he doesn't have as many years as Brown and Tatum to make the team.

yeah barring injury I can't see any way  Horford isn't an all star if the Celtics end up with 4 of them

I don't see Brown making an All-Star game next year. Because of the way they have to fit into two categories guards and bigs, I can't see Brown beating out a bunch of other Eastern Conference guards.

Kyrie
Lowry
Wall
Beal
Oladipo
Walker
Simmons


All those guards will have better numbers than Brown.

Hey now...

But yeah, Brown has some seriously stiff competition. Not to mention reigning (if somewhat mystifying) All-Star Goran Dragic.

What is this, a popularity contest (ESPN voting) for a popularity contest (all star selections)?
