Yao Ming is an all-star starter again! No surprise why he is an all-star, but still is pretty funny. He is now an 8 time all-star, despite only playing more then 70 games four times. The steroid era made HR numbers forever skewed and in some cases asterisks placed by numbers. I wonder if Yao's all-star appearances will set a similar precedent when it comes to looking at how great players careers were, with all-star appearances being one of the bigger things on their resumes.
