HoopsHype Stephen Curry rumors

January 25, 2015 Updates

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested the NBA should do away with fan balloting for the All-Star game, saying the leading total of 1.5 million votes for Golden State's Stephen Curry was so low it was "embarrassing." Cuban said Friday the roster should be expanded to 14 players from the current 12. He said coaches or general managers or both should choose the teams. The outspoken owner said the low total for Curry was evidence that the "system's broken, absolutely, positively broken." "And fans are allowed to vote more than once, right?" Cuban said "That's embarrassing. To think that we couldn't get people to vote enough times. No one even tried to hack it. That's how bored they are." USA Today Sports
