Player identities revealed after the jump. But if you look before voting you're a cheater and people won't like you very much.

Player A is our very own Tyreke Evans.

Player B is Jason Kidd, who is reportedly going to be replacing Bryant in the All-Star Game.

My gut reaction was that the NBA was going with a name that casual fans would recognize. I feel like they're blowing an opportunity to give additional exposure to an up-and-coming star. I even went so far as to say that Kidd in the All-Star Game was as bad as McGrady and Iverson. The stats, however, made a compelling case, and I was curious how blind voting would turn out.
