Mo an All Star?

Well, after a few weeks of inexplicable harping by various media luminaries, Mo Williams is an All Star.  That's right folks, Mo has been bestowed the greatest in season honor the NBA has, and will join such equals as Lebron James, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul in Phoenix.

If you are a Bucks fan, I'm sure your reaction is most likely confusion and a little outrage.  After all, the Bucks did trade him for Luke Ridnour, who was serviceable until last week's injury, but certainly not an All Star.

If it's any comfort, Williams is not an All Star by most measures either.  In fact, he has regressed in all areas of his game since last year, save for free throw percentage.  The difference is that last year Mo played for a team that won 26 games.  It would seem Mo is the benefactor of an NBA spoils system which rewards those on winning teams, regardless of actual impact or ability.

It is my opinion that Williams' All Star selection will be seen mainly as a fluke, in the vein of Jamaal Magloire.  Still, it will be painful to hear him referred to as former All Star Mo Williams from now on.  Even more painful will be watching him stand idly behind the arc demanding that deserving All Stars "Swing It!".
