I'll take a 55 or 60 win team without a single all star. Carmello Anthony was a 10-time all star and got past the first round of the playoffs exactly once.
So with this logic, all star players are selfish.
Tatum should definitely aim to be an all-star because that means he has elevated his game to a very high level. Being an all-star is not something that’s easy to do.
As far as Brown, there is nothing that he had done in this league at resembles anything close to an all-star. I know lot of people here will disagree and that’s normal since it’s a Celtic board. But Brown has had the same issues since day one of being a Celtic. Ball handling issues, poor BBIQ, which includes below average passing and court awareness. Not to mention poor FT shooting.
If Brown became at all star next season, to me it would mean he made great strides in improving his all around game and it wouldn’t be because he was selfish. And I would be happy for Brown and this team if he became an all-star. The more all-stars on this team, the better.
