All Star game most even in a long time

For the past several years, you could see a poll about the NBA All Star game and it would be an easy slam dunk.  The west was just stronger.  With Miami's win a few years ago in the finals, and some superstar moves from one conference to the other (ie..Garnett), and injuries/aging of other stars (ie..McGrady/Shaq), look at the starters selected for each.  I saw the poll posted today and had a hard time deciding who to put as the strongest starters.

Of course, the coaches picks will have a huge impact on the overall squads strengths, but this is the  closest two starting squads talent wise I have ever seen.  I will actually enjoy this years game.  By the way, I'm not gonna sit on the fence.  Much to my dismay, I had to pick the East over the West.

Could a kicker ever be an MVP?

As I commented earlier on another thread, I don't think a kicker will ever be an MVP.  If a team in the Superbowl did not score any touchdowns, kicked four field goals, and won the Superbowl 12-10, I still don't think the kicker would be named the Superbowl MVP.  They would name the quarterback that drove them down for the winning field goal, or the wide receiver with 180 receiving yards that caught the pass to put them in field goal range, or a running back, get the idea.  They would never name the field goal kicker!  This is my first blog entry so i hope you guys and girls like it.
