its an all star game...size and defense won't matter...the game will be played on the perimeter.

Happy to see Jrue made it, well deserved. On the other hand, I see no reason why Eric Bledsoe, Derrick Favors, and Gary Neal all got the nod over Evan Turner.

I'm not trying to lay claim that Turner has been great this year, but those 3 I mentioned cannot make a claim to play over him based on stats. So I think the deciding factor comes down to the fact that Turner is contributing to a better team than both the Clippers and Nets. He is also more of a marquee name than Neal and Bledsoe, so just based on who people would rather see is why he should get the nod IMO.

Being shuffled in and out of the lineup and learning to have to change his game up based on whether Iguodala is playing or not, has contributed greatly to the slow start of Evan Turner. But, over the past 10 games or so with growing chemistry between Iggy and Turner, you can see Turner starting to find his niche.

Oh well, just one more thing to mark down on Turner's bulletin board. He'll be playing in this game next season, book it.

The rookies would destroy the sophomore if it was a serious game. But it's a fun game and will likely to be a close game with no defense whatsoever.

Evan Turner? Is he going to be one of the biggest busts? I thought he was a more polished player spending all the years in college and he's the same age with Durant, Rose, Westbrook etc. wow.

Also, congratulations to Greg Monroe. As a big time Georgetown fan I'm very happy to see that he has been given quality playing time over the past month or so, and he is proving to be every bit as good as I thought he would be. If the Sixers had gotten the 6th pick like we were projected to get, I was all on the Monroe bandwagon. As I said in the Pistons forum at the beginning of the year, just give the man playing time because he is a special player.

Actually, as a Sixer fan who watches Evan Turner play each and every game, I know that he is good. I'm critical of my own team's players so it's not just a homer opinion. I also did not say that he's been great, I simply said that Neal, Bledsoe, and Favors are no more deserving of that spot than him.

He has been inconsistent, and a lot of that has been due to Andre Iguodala being in and out of the lineup this year. Turner has found his place this season as a key member of the highest scoring bench in the NBA, and over the last 10-12 games has been a very productive player. His shooting and decision making need to improve, but he has shown flashes of his talent and will be a very good player for years to come.

Neal is in the rotation of the SPURS, who have the leagues best record, Bledsoe is the 2nd best PG in the draft, and Favors is shooting over 50 percent for the year. Sixers have a better team than Clippers and Nets because of the talent level its not Evan Turner that took them there.

So shooting a higher % makes Favors more deserving than Turner? And being the 2nd best PG in a PG weak draft class doesn't say that much. Being a key member of the league's highest scoring bench says a lot about Turner, because many nights it is Turner, Lou Williams, and Thad Young bailing out the Sixers starters.

What exactly makes Favors and Bledsoe more deserving than Turner?

Many people disagree, there are a lot better players that the Sixers should have picked over Turner now. There is a reason he wasnt picked for the rookie/sophmore game.

Evan Turner not making the team is a joke and anyone who says hes a bust has just been basing it off what there reading from morons like david thorpe and bill simmons and not actuallty wathcing sixers games of late. His potential is scary and hes able to impact the outcome of games by more then just points. Look at how many games his put up numbers like 10 pts 8 rebs 6 assts. The guy is going to be a stud if he can make his mid range jumper more often

Maybe Davis should be in instead of Favors, but Ed Davis isn't earning playing time behind Amir Johnson and Bargnani. That's just sad.

Neal was undrafted. Played a few years overseas after college and signed a 3 year deal with the Spurs. I'm hoping whoever is coaching this game gives him some playing time. He could go off in a game like this.

The two teams are fairly evenly matched if Blake doesn't play. The dude's already a superstar; with him they became too fast, too strong, and flat out too good to lose in an All-Star game like this. Curry, Ibaka, Derozan etc are good, but guys like Wall and Griffin were built to dominate in such a setting.

Davis, Turner and George are the snubs here. Davis missed first month of the season, Turner had rough start and O'Brien didn't give George enough burn. But all three of those rookies should be on the sophomores next year IMO.

Hard to slight Neal since he's played so well with the leagues best team.
Favors has draft pedigree, but so does Turner. He's had plenty of hype from the Melo drama though.
Bledsoe has had his moments. Definitely benefits from lack of PG's in this draft though.

It's essentially a wash based on per 36, but if he could come in night in and night out, as Monroe has done, and play well like that, then there is no way you start Amir Johnson over him. There is also the popularity aspect, and in the end, Monroe is putting up slightly better numbers on a better team. I like Davis, I like seeing him do well because if it weren't for the GSW Udoh pick, we'd probably either have him or Udoh.

There's your problem right there!

If you really honestly think that Davis deserves to be there ahead of a player who has actually performed based on what Davis COULD possibly do IF given the chance too then you are really getting ahead of yourself.

Monroe has been stellar since becoming a starter and able to stay on the floor.

If you want to make a case for yourself using per/36 #s then Favors would theoretically have better numbers than Davis as well.

What you need to realize is that there is honestly no case for Davis over Monroe. None.

I love me some statistics but actual in game production and performance as a starting player in what Monroe has under his belt and that weighs much heavier than calculated per 36 numbers.

There's no case for that quite honestly. Favors yes. Monroe hell no.

:facepalm:

Do you even understand basketball?

Morrison was getting the playing time on a team that had a slot open for him to start and he couldn't even consistently get himself some decent #s. Evan while playing horribly hasn't had the opportunities that Morrison had in Charlotte.

In the 5 games in which Turner has started while Andre Iguodala was out he averaged 12.8ppg 8.2rpg 2.8apg 46% shooting, that is better than any 5 game stretch Adam Morrison had in his rookie season.

Also he played 31 minutes per game as compared to Turner's 24.

While Evan has been stellar on D Adam Morrison was downright AWFUL. There is no debating that Adam produced more when given the chance but he was not efficient in the very least.

Lastly Adam Morrison came into the league being compared to Larry Bird, Evan Turner was compared to Brandon Roy. His hard work and determination will see him having a much longer and better career than Adam Morrison.

Chronz I have been debating with my fellow 76ers fans on something if you want you can check out the discussion. Do you think a legit case can be made for Evan making the rookie squad?

Bledsoe was selected based on two things IMO.

His play as a starter and the fact that the game is in LA.

C Cousins


Sophmores:

PG Curry
SG Evans
SF DeRozan
PF Ibaka
C Blair

The Rooks have such a better big man rotation especially with Monroe rotating in, but the Sophs have a better guard rotation with Holliday and Jennings rotating in.

I used the same basis (performance and production) here that I used in the 76ers forum. I also used per/36 numbers when I referred to what Favors could have possibly done when given the opportunity to get good minutes the same case the other poster used and only compared Davis to Monroe.

When I spoke of actual in game production and performance it was in relation to Monroe vs Ed Davis which was a huge difference over the past 2-3 weeks. I did say that he may have a case for Davis over Favors however.

I admitted my mistake and said that if giver adequate minutes (Per/32) Favors could be a much better player. I didn't base my entire argument solely on my Per minute equation but more so on a host of other factors as well. Didn't I?

How was I not consistent?

I think the Sophomores are going to get the win, im saying experience and scoring ability over the size and raw talent of the rooks. Shame about Harden though, he's deserves a spot.

Wall-Fields-Wesley-Blake-Cousins/Monroe

30 points blowout IMO

Yea, the Rooks have so much more size, and they actually have a SF lol. Still shake my head at 6 guards for the Sophomores.

People said the now sophomore team wouldn't win last year because of size. Then DeJuan Blair destroyed everyone.

The Rook Soph game isn't some game with post play and interior defense, it's all star game for people wet behind the ears :laugh2:

The team with the best perimeter players will normally win

Chronz I have been debating with my fellow 76ers fans on something if you want you can check out the discussion. Do you think a legit case can be made for Evan making the rookie squad?

Bledsoe was selected based on two things IMO.

His play as a starter and the fact that the game is in LA.

No case

Bledsoe lost the starting gig cuz he couldnt keep up his torrid start, coincidental evidence at best. Most players do tend to play better in the starting lineup but I treat these selections under the same criteria as the All-Star game. What matters is the totality of your contributions, Im not going to flat out ignore the ****** play off the bench just because he was much better as a starter. There is no guarantee that he maintains his production simply by being named a starter, its more likely he hit the rookie wall or teams began playing off him and hes yet to adjust. This would have happened no matter what.

I actually think he made the team just off the fact that they needed another PG.

Blair won't do that to this team. Not to Griffin, not to Cousins, and not to Monroe. The team had 2 SFs last year in Casspi and Jerebko, Jerebko adding a lot of size. Now they'll have an average of like 6'6" on the court.

I dont understand this at all? You didnt posts anything but insults. The LEAGUE put Derrick Favors in and didnt put Evan Turner in. I dont know what you want me to say. And saying the Sixers would be better if Nets had Melo is pretty disgraceful. I am not here to talk about tommrows game we will just have to see what happends. Personally I think Sixers will get rocked Nets are 6-1 at home in there last 7 home games.


Good call.

It's essentially a wash based on per 36, but if he could come in night in and night out, as Monroe has done, and play well like that, then there is no way you start Amir Johnson over him. There is also the popularity aspect, and in the end, Monroe is putting up slightly better numbers on a better team. I like Davis, I like seeing him do well because if it weren't for the GSW Udoh pick, we'd probably either have him or Udoh.

Thats debateable.

And Pistons are 2-1 against Toronto this year.

Have you seen Amir Johnson play???? You underate Amir Johnson and Way OVERATE Austin Daye. Last time I checked daye was averaging 6.7ppg and his defence is pretty bad and you think he should of made the soph team lol. Demar is a way better player, different tier of player and you think Austin Daye should of made it over him???

dont forget the pistons blew a 29 point lead and plus the Raptors are goin to be better next year and in the future. Raps got better pieces going forward. Raps also have dealt with injuries all season long. Barbosa, Evans, Kleiza, Weems, Calderon, Bayless, Amir. The Raps played game using only 7 players once. Pistons have been healthy all season long and the pistons are only have won 4 more games???

And the Raptors are on a 13 game losing streak. I don't get what your trying to prove?

Pistons have a better record....

And are you sure the Pistons are fully healthy? Jonas Jerebko hasn't played a game all year.

So we compare good teams all the time, why not compare bad ones? I see no logic behind that, because a team plays badly they should not be discussed.

i know what ur saying. comparing good teams is fine. even putting one ****** team under the microscope and analyzing how good there are is ok (i.e. cavs). however, when ur comparing two **** teams, seperated by 4 wins, that doesnt stimulate a whole lot of intellectual debate. a majority of these threads result in homers bashing the other team. all im saying is a bos vs la debate is much more stimulating than a tor vs det debate. case and point - the thread which just got closed.
