Tobias Harris: I'm An All-Star 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Mar 17, 2021 5:36 pm

Tobias Harris scored 30 points in a comeback win by the Philadelphia 76ers over the New York Knicks without Joel Embiid.


Harris was one of the All-Star omissions and he made a point of asserting he believed he should have been included.


"I'm an All-Star!" Harris was caught saying by the NBC Sports Philadelphia cameras.


"That's for sure what I said," Harris said postgame. "For me, that's just reaffirming that to myself. I know the fans know that, but reaffirming that to them and to myself, especially making those big plays. I try to just find motivation in different areas. That's one of them."


"He was pissed off,"  Ben Simmons said, referencing Harris and his omission from the All-Star team. "He should have been an All-Star. You got a few guys -- myself and Joel on this team, and then Tobias, I think people just take for granted how talented he is. If he was on the team I don't want to take anything away from any other All-Stars but if he was on a different team, he's going to be putting up those numbers. It's clear he's able to do that. But obviously it went the way it went, but he is, no matter what. To us, he's an All-Star, he's one of those guys who can get it done, go get a bucket. He's a big time player."

He's not but it's okay. Somebody needs to be the Derek Harper of this generation now that Mike Conley was given mercy.

If you have to tell people, then you probably aren't.

I didn't like his personality when I saw him interviewed on First Take last year.
He's a bit too proud of himself for my liking.

Yes Tobias, you are good enough talent wise or statistically. Many players are. But are you a star? Do fans outside of Philly tune in to watch you? Or are they tuning in to watch Simmons and Embid? Those 2 are stars without a doubt. You're a good talent but I don't get excited to watch a movie with you in the credits.

Any time dudes like this say they should be all-stars the reporters need to ask them point-blank WHO spot should he have? Let's see how long they keep talking about being slighted when their words are on record. :D

I'm definitely not tuning in to see Simmons not shoot. I'd rather watch Tobias. But neither of those two would be considered in the West. Embiid is the show for sure!

He's definitely not an all-star. Why would Phili deserve 3 guys? Only spot he could have taken is Ben's.

I agree with the dude below. Say it with your chest! Call out who shouldn't have made it if your so confident.
