2011 NBA All-Star Ballot: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups And Nene Appear

It's already time to vote for the 2011 NBA All-Star game--and we're not even a month into the season! It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Denver Nuggets have three players listed on the 2011 NBA All-Star ballot, which came out earlier today. Those players are:

↵

Carmelo Anthony, SF: Anthony is the No. 5 scorer in the league at 24.6 per game, and he is just below a double-double for the season with 9.4 rebounds per game. He has made three NBA All-Star games (2007, 2008, 2010) and should be well on his way to a fourth appearance.

↵

Chauncey Billups, PG: Billups has made the last five All-Stars games dating back to 2006 when he was with the Detroit Pistons. Billups, who averaged around 19 points a game last season, is down to 14.4 through 11 games. Will 2011 snap his All-Star Game streak?

↵

Nene, C: In his ninth NBA season, the Brazilian-born center will hope to finally crack the NBA All-Star Game. While not qualified to be among the league's leading centers, Nene has the fourth-best scoring average (12.6) at the position and is 10th in rebounds (5.8).

There really isn't a case for any other Nuggets player to have been placed on the ballot, but there's always the write-in option in case any voter would like to do so. Say, Gary Forbes? He's been one of the best players the last couple of weeks for the team.
