NBA All-Star Voting results: No Jazz players in contention after first returns

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

It's that special time of the year where every few weeks we are shown how highly regarded our players are. You need a star to win in this league, and according to the fan votes, once again we are bereft of one. The NBA All-Star Game ballot returns came in after the first deluge of votes for the 2014 Game (to be held in New Orleans in February 16th, 2014). And this is what they look like:

I am interested to see what the full voting turns out like. I need it deep in my soul to know if Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Trey Burke or others are even ranked higher than people like Tyreke Evans or Tiago Splitter. So in the mean time, let the overt tank continue, 'cause we're not signing one of these guys as a free agent next year, nor are we going to trade for one. Our only option / hope is through the draft. And kudos to Dennis Lindsey for doing exactly what he needed to do in order to maximize our fortunes in the lottery.
