View Full Version : Do you think Noah has a chance to make the All-Star team this year?

Well he obviously won't get voted in. Coaches love players who hustle though. His main competition will probably be Horford. Lopez doubtful imo cause there's no way they let 2 allstars from NJ when you consider their record. Shaq has been crap thus far. Which leaves us with Hibbert, Noah, Bargnani, Haywood and Horford. Hibbert, Bargnani and Haywood all play on fairly bad teams as well, ones with already one likely allstar anyway. Which leaves noah and Horford. Both on good teams, both playing well. Noah currently is slightly better. It may come to the records of each team. I have a feeling KG will get voted in (even though he hasn't been anything special) And they might make Bosh backup center (in which case I'll be super pissed). Thus far, I think Noah deserves it though.

I'm biased because I love Joakim (Gators). But he is second in rebounds per game, and top 10 in blocks and FG%. If he keeps those numbers up, I don't see why not. After Dwight there aren't a ton of centers. Shaq and Bargs (and their huge following) will be his main competition. Horford (another Gator!!!) is also gonna hurt his chances. Hopefully the coaches vote him.

It's too early...but if he keeps it up, and Bulls win some games, then he will deserve it.

DRose is still on a bum ankle and missed all of preseason. Just like Dwill last year, its going to take him a couple weeks to get back. He dropped 22 last night and he isnt even trying break ankles yet, but he will soon. then come back and talk that ish.

I was under the impression that Noah was hated around the league? Isn't he the type of guy you love on your own team because of all the hustle, but hate if he is on a different team? Kinda like Nocioni, Ginobli, Artest, etc. I thought everyone hated him, and I completely understand why, I'd hate him if he weren't a Bull.

It'll be hard to make it.
He'll have to compete with Howard of course, and if Shaq gets voted in by fans, then that'll surely eliminate any chance.
KG will make it ahead of him too. Bargnani will probably get in before Noah also.

You guys do realize only starters get voted in. So Dwight will obviously be the center and the forwards will likely be lebron and either KG or Bosh. I doubt Raptors get TWO allstars since their record is nothing special. Horford is the main competition. And Shaq has been a turd thus far.

That's hilarious considering I'm not even a Laker fan :laugh:
And I agree Noah has had a better season than Rose. But Rose doesn't pertain to this thread in ANY way. You just have an obssession over him.

KG was a stud, but he isn't the same player anymore it's clearly evident. Fortunately Celtics are still working great as a team, better than ever actually. You still have yet to show evidence as to why KG deserves to be an allstar this year. Pierce does, and maybe Rondo, but no one else has had great stats on that team.

Yeah. All those rebounds are a result of Derrick Rose.

Haha.

His numbers barely jumped from his rookie year to last year...so you can't really credit much to Rose. His numbers are jumping to this year...and I really don't think he's a product of Rose. It's not like Rose is dishing out 10 assists a game, including many to Noah.

Stop posting. Your lack of knowledge is evident. Watch Noah play. Most of his points come from put backs. Rose has nothing to do with it. In fact Rose has been mediocre thus far.

I don't know. You gotta look at today's game. Not many good big man. Only big man that are clearly better statistically than Noah in the East are Bosh and Dwight. With that said, Noah is playing alot like Biedrins. What I mean by that is that he is getting a ton of rebounds because all the other players play in the perimeter.

I admitted I was biased...but at least I provided some evidence to why he deserves some recognition (2nd in rebounds, top 10 in FG% and blocks). You've provided nothing to elaborate why you think he is a product of Derrick Rose. Once you try, I'll take you seriously. You've said nothing worth a damn.

The only thing I can think of that makes his stats look inflated is the fact that he is the only one who plays in the paint. We often have to put Deng in pf because Thomas is out. Hence the reason Noah is getting all the rebounds. I still think he can get voted in though cause coaches love players who play hard throughout the game nonstop, and Noah is a great example of such.

Fair enough. Besides Deng, who is a perimeter player, the Bulls do have Ty, Miller and Gibson who are all good rebounders. Chicago is top 5 in the league as a team as far as rebounding. It's not like he is the only rebounder on the team, resulting in ultra-inflated rebounding stats.

Deng has played a lot a PF, sure...but Ty, Miller and Taj are playing 66 minutes a game combined. There usually is another big on the court with Noah.

Both are also playing in fast pace systems. Both also have very few rebounds. And are nothing defensively. And Gallinari's fg% is nothing to write home about, he's a forward anyway.


and he has been getting rebounds,but rebounds dont get you to the all star game

Meet Ben Wallace. Sure Noah obviously isn't near the defender of Ben, but he is a better offensive player and again, there is a lack of talent in today's group of big man compared to the 90s. Noah at this point is certainly borderline.

Well Ty is out. Miller is below average (compared to big man) as a rebounder. you have a point with Taj. I'm just being the devil's advocate though :)

Its basicly a popularity contest and Noah will be more popular than those two and anything can happen in the NBA nobody thought Kevin Martin was going to be a stud, and Danny Granger , who would have thought that Robert Horry would win a **** load of championship rings.

Yeah, they are both mechanical looking on offense, Lee is a better offensive player.I like the garbage man thing, maybe the Bulls should nickname him the junkyard dog or Lamont Stanford.

Not trying to slight him either, I like Noah's work ethic and willingness to mix it up. I recall 90% plus wanted to get rid of him over the last 2 yrs, how things have changed. His game is very similar to Joel Pryzbilla's and Pryz is a favorite in Portland because of his good work ethic and timely rebounding, blocking and good defense.

He is no allstar though and if he does make it, then the East is really watered down at the center position. But it would be nice to see a guy get recognized for the intangibles and hard work.

I still cant get over that get up he was wearing on draft day, he looked like the bow tie killer, howdy dowdy and the bride of frankensteins brother all rolled up in one, I wonder how him and Oden would do at a bar if they werent famous, geez!

Meh Pryz is a better defender, but I think Noah is better offensively at this point and maybe rebounder.
The center position is watered down in general in this era. Behind Dwight it can be anyone in the East. Obviously in talent and skill alone it's probably Lopez. however team success is factored in as well. Which imo makes it close between Noah and Horford.

Too bad it isn't just Bulls fans who think that. You have yet to give me objective reasons as to why he doesn't or any player who is clearly better. Sorry abe, but you are wrong. And I'm not saying Noah deserves necessarily to be an allstar, but it's closer than you think. It sad to think that lately by playing the "anti-homer" you think people will respect you more. Newsflash: they don't.
Nothing about noah did I say was homer anyway. I even gave reasons as to why he has alot of rebounds. However it's closer than you think.

Yeah Pryz is not somebody you look to on offense unless it's a pass close to the rim, backdoor or cutting the lane but I dont think Noah is anything other the 4th or 5th option either. Noah is not a better rebouder than Pryzbilla, keep in mind he splits time with Oden but he had a lot of games in the last couple of yrs where he got 15 or more even and a couple of games with 24 or more (high was 27).

But yeah overall I agree with you.

Sorry if it hurts. Then again, I can see why Nets fans agree with this after having 2 allstars in 06-07 when they were lucky to deserve one.
Lopez is a star in the making, but that team record is horrible atm and one quality of an allstar is being a apart of a winning team. Devin is an obvious candidate, Lopez isn't, yet.


lol coming from someone thinks a bad team cant have two all stars even if they deserve it.
And who else do I think deserves to be an allstar. And Bulls aren't a bad team anyway. They are top at their division atm.
Only players that have been playing great on the bulls atm is Deng and Noah.

If Noah makes the all-star team this year with Dwight and Shaq in the conference during a game decided by popular vote, then Kwame Brown's playing on the next U.S. Olympic Team.

LOL wow have you watched a team other than the Raptors? How bout you take the tampon out of your butt and loosen up?:D

So why again do you think I've only watched the Raps cause I mention Bargnani. Don't just throw in stupid raptor bashing cause I don't think Noah is an all-star.

Only the starters are determined by fan vote. But you act like Noah does have a large following after winning at Florida and then playing in the 3rd largest city in the country.

Ultimately it's going to come down to Brook Lopez, Al Horford, and maybe Shaq. Out of that group one, at most two, will be picked. My guess is Lopez and Dwight

You under-estimate the power involved in cults of personality. Shaq will mostly likely be in another all-star game this year.

Ok and be rational. Saying Noah has no shot is ridiculous. He has played great. Maybe he won't make it (in fact I don't think he will). But he certainly is a possibility atm.

you deserve a :facepalm:

I'm confused, is this really a thread or is it some kind of joke?
Can Jared Jeffries be on the All Star team too? :confused:

REINFORCED :facepalm:

(Sorry for sounding like a jerk, but I am thoroughly lost. Fact of the matter is that unless Joakim became magically better than Dwight, or more popular than Shaq, or even has a better season than Brook Lopez in New Jersey, there is no chance he will ever make an All Star team. Then again, maybe I haven't watched enough Bulls games)

Noah doesn't have to be more popular than Shaq; he just has to outplay him which to this point, he has. Dwight will win the starting center (rightfully so) vote, and the coaches/players make up the rest of the team. Noah is the 2nd leading rebounder (or at least he was before tonight's games) and is scoring nearly 12 ppg at nearly 60%.
