He's not an All-Star anymore, but Allen Iverson is still one of the game's most popular players.

19 games. 1.4 ppg and  4.4 assists per game.

Those don’t look like All-Star type numbers, but that’s what Allen Iverson has delivered this season.

Isn’t startling, but the fans love him. So much so that they voted Iverson a starter for the upcoming All-Star game next month in Dallas.

I go back and forth on this.

Iverson is a future Hall of Famer, but he’s on the down end of his career and seemingly quit on Memphis before rejoining the 76ers this season.

However, he isn’t playing too bad for Philly and other than Rajon Rondo of Boston, what other guard in the East is worthy of being a starter in the All-Star game?

I’m waiting.
