2013 All Stars (thus far...) 

Post#1 » by Ayatollah » Wed Dec 5, 2012 9:34 am

West:
Paul, Bryant, Durant, Griffin, Howard
Westbrook, Parker, Harden, Gay, Randolph, Lee, Love

East:
Williams, Wade, James, Anthony, Chandler
Rondo, Felton, Ellis, Pierce, Deng, Bosh, Varejao

This would be my choice... (Don´t like the LMA idea btw, but there´s nothing special in the west...)
And I think Ty Chandler will make the Starting Five...

Duncan is an allstar this year FOR SURE. Have you seen him play ? He's better than LMA, Randolph, Gay or even Love so far.

Better than Howard/Griffin too. Best big man in the western conference thus far.

Ellis? Shouldn't be an all star, all his numbers are down...

I think Josh Smith should be in there somewhere.

I would wish that Ibaka's far superior advanced statistics would let him make it over Aldridge but Aldridge has the better raw stats and that's usually what count. Oh well, can't complain about "only" having two all stars

West:
Paul, Bryant, Durant, Griffin, Howard
Westbrook, Parker, Harden, Randolph, Marc Gasol , Tim Duncan, Serge Ibaka

East:
Rondo, Wade, James, Anthony, Bosh
Deron, Holiday, Lopez, Pierce, Chandler, Horford, Varejao

Kevin Love has been bad so far. He shouldn't be in the all star game as of now.

Rondo/Williams/Holiday
Wade/Jennings
Anthony/Pierce
James/Smith
Bosh/Chandler/Varejao

Paul/Westbrook/Parker
Bryant/Harden
Durant/Gay
Griffin/Love/Randolph
Howard/Duncan

Personally I'd start Love over Griffin and replace Griffin completely with Ibaka.

Yeah, that's pretty much it.
The starters are already known, then 2 spurs, 2 grizzlies, Love is a no brainer, Harden too, and Westbrook is a lock. Don't see how it'd not be those 12.

The only one I could discuss is Marc Gasol or Rudy Gay for the second Grizz.
For sure, there'll be 2 spurs and 2 grizz.

I don't think Griffin should be an all star (right now) but whatever.

Love will get better, he till hasn't found his touch jet. Give him more time, he was just injured weeks ago.

The way Duncan has been playing he is a lock. Duncan is in beast mode this season.
Shaq on Duncan:SA won because of TD, a guy I could never break.I could talk trash to Ewing, get in D-Rob's face, get a rise out of Mourning,but when I went at Tim he’d look at me like he was bored and say:“Hey,Shaq, watch this shot right off the glass.”

harden has no business being in the conv. shooting 36% from the field and 65% of his points are from free throws which he will stop getting once refs realize he isnt that good

The 24 that should go,...

Paul-Bryant-Durant-Randolph-Duncan
Parker-Westbrook-Mayo/Harden-Gay-Lee-Aldridge/Jefferson-Gasol

I don't care which two between those four

Rondo-Wade-Anthony-James-Bosh
Holiday-Jennings-Pierce-Deng-West-Smith/Horford-Lopez

The best one from Atlanta duo, right now maybe Horford.

Man, the East is terrible, Wade is the starter and he's playing so bad, Deron team is playing good ball, but he's awful so I don't think he deserve it.

Take away Harden's first two games

21/4/4 on now 37% FG . He slowly creeping into Austin Rivers efficiency

Mayo is playing better than Harden in my mind...

Tim SHOULD be starting this year, he's been the best big in the league, has the highest Defensive Rating in the NBA, and has led his team to a 14-4 start while they are dealing with injuries all over the roster. Unfortunately, we all know Dwight will be starting. Spoelstra, if he's coaching the EC all-stars, should hack him on the opening possession like Pop did to Shaq, except Dwight would probably just get butthurt

Out of this statement I can read that you haven't seen Love this season. :lol:

He's rusty as hell after that injury so far.
