Rose sixth in latest All-Star returns

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is a distant sixth in the latest results of voting to determine the starters at guard for the Eastern Conference in next month’s NBA All-Star Game in Dallas.

Rose had 385,829 votes, more than 500,000 less than the second-place finisher.

Miami’s Dwyane Wade is the leading vote getter with more than 1.7 million votes, followed by Allen Iverson (930,713), Vince Carter (745,581), Ray Allen (510,885) and Gilbert Arenas (445,473).

If Iverson is voted a starter, that would be a disgrace — and more evidence that the league needs some veto power over fan voting.
