Why did Stoudemire get so many All-Star votes? NY star power.

New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

There are a lot of perks to being the star of the New York Knicks. For one, every game you get to see what Clyde Frazier is wearing up close. You get to hang with Spike Lee and ask him to explain why he made “She Hate Me.” You probably never pay for a slice of pizza.

And, if your All-Star campaign is lagging, you get a slick video filled with stars to pimp you, telling everyone to vote for you.

It works — Stoudemire has moved well ahead of Kevin Garnett for the second starting forward spot in the East (next to some guy named LeBron). Check out the video for yourself.
