Kobe approving means it's a good move?38 year old Nash, LAL signed him, Kobe approved.
Injured Howard, LAL traded for Bynum, Kobe approved.
Pau Gasol, won two rings for LAL, gets bashed because he's old.
Thanks for proving my point.Just stop it. Everyone knew Nash can't play defense. Everyone knew Howard was injured. Kobe in the Olympics kept harassing and bragging about his new team to Westbrook/Durant to the point where Durant/Westbrook hated being with him. Maybe Kobe should've kept quiet.

DeMarcus Cousins PER 21.1 averaging 20/12 per 36.
The fact that Kobe approved means he knew full well of the players who were coming in. He knew Nash can't play defense, he knew Howard is injured, and he knew Gasol is struggling. Now you're going to say Kobe has no teammates? Seriously, you guys signed the best center, a top 10 PG, and you're still complaining? Give me a break. Dallas has a better record and their best player, Dirk, was injured and is still playing bad. Blaming his teammates when Kobe declared themselves champions before winning a game is just the icing on the cake.
That's comparing the top 6 centers this year. Right now, honestly, Duncan has been the best. His defensive #s of been terrific and his PER 36 #s are awesome. He should honestly be in the top 5 in MVP voting this year. I can't think of 5 players better than him this year.
Now granted I am a huge Nets fan, but I am shocked at how many people would have Gasol over him. People say Lopez is a horrid rebounder, but Gasol's #s are one of the lowest among centers. People need to stop repeating the same things about Lopez that he can't rebound or defend. This year he has been a top 10 defensive center with one of the highest block rates in the league and decent DRTG. He has rebounded at a solid rate as well at 9.1. Now I am not going to say he's terrific in these qualities, but he has been good this year and I think it is time we give him the credit he deserves. He would be my 2nd team All NBA Center.
And for my ALL NBA 3rd Team, Tyson Chandler is the option here. I am a Nets fan, but I am not a hater on everything Knicks. Tyson is a stud. He is as efficient as it comes and a great defender. Probably the largest reason IMO the Knicks have been as good as they have this year.
Can't believe I'd see the day where Dwight isn't in an ALL NBA team. He's still the best center in the league due to his large body of work, but he just hasn't been as good this year. As for Noah and Gasol, great centers, but are overrated on this site for some reason.
Sim League Spurs
PG Lebron James
SG D Wade
SF Kevin Durant
PF Carmelo Anthony
C Blake Griffin
This team can rebound because there huge at PG and SF and super athletic everywhere. Two great three point shooters. Four that can get to the hole at will. All can run. All can finish. All are unselfish and will play there position. They could run any team off the court. They would be deadly from 3pt land. There would be a lot of running and dunking and wide open three point draining. That would be My starting 5 if I was a coach. That wont be the all nba team though... obviously.
