Just saw the poll: Link (http://www.nba.com/chooseyoursquad/?ls=iref:nbahpt1)

CP3 is already in. Personally I'm going to vote Derek Fisher.

D. Fish can't even make a layup.. :p

Rose, Curry, Parker, and Westbrook would be for who I would vote.

Serious list: Derrick Rose (even though hes been in it), John Wall, Baron Davis (in LA) and Westbrook.

WTF: No Rondo?

They probably didn't want the other competitors to decline the invite when they saw Rondos name on the list of invitees.

Vote Fisher. I want him to win it.

It's all about making the most exciting competition.

Too Slow:
BDiddy
Derek Fisher

Not Good Enough Passer:
Tyreke Evans

That leaves:Parker - Curry - Rose - Westbrook - Wall

Parker has already been in it twice and lost both times so I'm bumping him.
Derrick Rose - former winner must be in.
Curry-Westbrook-Wall - Good luck.

ok big whoop, that still dosen't mean he can't hit a jumpshot in the skills comp.

But it means he's not as good at it. Celtics fans need to get over it. He's a great passer, but not a good shooter yet.

Hustlenomics here to complain that he's improved though in 3, 2, 1...

He hit like 10 straight 3's in the HORSE competition last year, he can hit a jump shot.

You mean when you get to take your time and set your feet not worrying about getting the fastest time? Ok yeah.

id like to see rose in it, but i doubt he will even want to play in it.

Rose cuz he's a goon and is a quick Mofo.

Curry cuz he's probably the most accurate shooter and a pretty good passer.

Wall since he's the rookie.

Westbrook cuz he's done work this year.

Voted twice... I went with

D. Rose

S. Curry

J. Wall

R. Westbrook

Best PURE point guards on that list. Fish is old, Davis is in decline, Tyreke is a SG and I hate T. Parker

Is there a round where participants get to pass to 4 HOF's?

Maybe Rondo declined the invite. Also, all this Rondo vs. Rose **** needs to stop. Celtics fans just think about this, Rose is almost three years younger than Rondo. Imagine where Rose is going to be three years from now. Hopefully in Chicago.

Also, if I was a Celtics fan I would take Rondo over Rose too. Rondo is just a better fit for a good team. He passes and defends, and that is exactly what the Celtics need. I would make the argument that the Celtics wouldn't trade Rondo for Wade, and I think we can all agree that Wade is a far better player. Like Kobe vs. James, if i am a **** team I take James because he can do more for a team, but if I am a title contender with a number one scorer already than I take Kobe because he is a better defender and shooter. Also, he is better in clutch situations.

it's not even a debate, i just seen two ignorant Bulls fans trying to make it one though

Evans, WB, Rose and Wall... The athletic PGs to show what skills they really have.

Dnovakovic099
01-27-2011, 07:24 PM
Also, am I the only one that noticed that Blake Griffin plays absolutely no defense? I don't know if it was just one game, but I watched the Portland game and he wasn't even trying to play defense. He never helped his teammates. It seemed like he didn't give a ****. The only time I ever saw him defend was against Aldridge, and Aldridge raped him in that matchup.

You honestly think Rondo is that much better?

Rose won his rookie year and hasn't been able to defend it (injured at the time last year) so I voted for him.

Rose, JW, CP, Westbrook and Rondo would be ideal.
