First All-Star ballot returns: Playing for Portland really does cripple your popularity

Thanks to SLAM for posting the first All-Star ballot returns.

It really reinforces just how off-the radar Portland remains to the mainstream basketball mind. For all Portland's national media coverage, for Brandon Roy's Western Conference Player of the Week, for the great story of the second youngest team being among the best in the West so far, The Blazer's best player is.......tenth in voting amongst guards. Wow.

I know fan voting often has stupid results but again, wow. Tenth? Really? He truly must be only a thinking man's star. But whatever, the coaches will put him in. Right?
