What makes a center?

As shocking as it may sound, considering Chris Kaman’s underachieving debacle last year, it is a relevant Clipper conversation to wonder if Kaman can make the All-Star team. It is a possibility, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

The problem is that Yao Ming will get voted in as the Western Conference starting center, and the Suns’ Amare Stoudemire probably will be the backup. So where does that leave Kaman?

But as it stands, Stoudemire is listed as a center on the All-Star ballot, and that seriously hurts Kaman’s chances.

At least the league helped Kaman by moving Tim Duncan from center to forward, after he was listed as a center earlier in the season…
