If Joe Johnson makes it then the East has gotten truly pathetic, he hasnt even been the 2nd best player on his team for the last 2 years and hes still making the squad.

name recognition on a middle of the pack playoff team out east is generally enough. If he makes it over Horford though, I would be shocked.

Why not Josh Smith instead of Horford?

because not only is Horford a center, but he's having a better season

Horford: 16-10-4 assists-58%
Smith: 16-8-3-47% shooting

Hawkeye15
02-03-2011, 07:01 PM
Why not Josh Smith instead of Horford?

Wouldn't surprise me if Horford does not make it, but he is flat out better than anyone else on the Hawks, but he plays a position that will have to put him up against Bogut and Noah to make it. With Noah missing so many games, it may just be Bogut.
Smith shouldn't sniff the all star game, cmon

Boozer has always destroyed Bosh in FG%. The only reason why Bosh put up slightly more points per game is because the Raptors ran their offense through him.

Well if your team needs a PF who can't rebound and has no post game. Then I agree. Bosh does some things well. But this year he shouldn't be in the all star game. Boozer was hurt too much to deserver it. However his numbers are far superior this year.

The only reason Bosh was the #1 PF choice in free-agency, was because of age. Boozer and Bosh are similar players, with Boozer being the better low post player.

I think he'd be more useful to Miami. Having someone with post moves and that can rebound. I really though Bosh was becoming one of the top rebounders. Not sure whats up with him this year. He's down to a 13.4 TRB%. 17.7 last year.

John Walls Era
02-03-2011, 08:18 PM
I do like the reserves. I knew Love wouldn't get it, even though he deserved it, because his team is just awful (sorry, but at this point it is). Team record does play apart in this; ALSO its hard to choose him over Blake and Dirk (Duncan will make it until he retires). I would like the see Josh Smith make it instead of Joe Johnson or Horford, but I can see why the coaches picked those 2.

Overall the coaches did a solid job.

Zach Randolph, Tony Parker, Lamar Odom, and Lamarcus Aldridge all deserve it more for contributing to actual winning.

If you are taking another losing guy from the west you have to go Love, so nope.

I want Odom, but it should be Parker since they have the best record in the league and Boston got 3 Celtics.

Like I said before Boozer is not the 3rd option on his team if he we're to take Bosh spot on the Heat he would average nearly identical stats as Bosh this season

What does that have to do with anything? Bosh choose to be the 3rd wheel to two of the best three players in the league, why should he get an all-star bid for being a solid but not great player this season? Boozer is the 2nd option on a team with an equal record and is putting up better numbers and is much more eff while doing so. Josh Smith should have made it ahead of Bosh.

Lamar Odom deserved to be on the all star team. I am very dissapointed he didn't make it. Kevin Love as well. Tim Duncan is on the team, but that's more like a lifetime achievement type of deal. He's not deserving over those guys, unless they have Duncan at center.

I think you would have to give Love the nod over Odom. Timmy, I respect the hell out of you, but you didnt deserve it this season. Unless they let him play Center.

The only reason Bosh was the #1 PF choice in free-agency, was because of age. Boozer and Bosh are similar players, with Boozer being the better low post player.
What makes you think hes the better low post player?


Well if your team needs a PF who can't rebound and has no post game. Then I agree. Bosh does some things well. But this year he shouldn't be in the all star game. Boozer was hurt too much to deserver it. However his numbers are far superior this year.
Defensively Bosh is greater and I dont reward players for being hurt

Well because he is? Bosh isn't a post player but I'm assuming you know this. Boozer has far superior numbers at the rim then Bosh. Not even close really. But thats ok because thats not what Bosh is. Bosh is a shooter and if used in a pick and pop could be lethal.

Boozer has twice as many attempts at the rim than Bosh does this season, while shooting a better %age as well. Most of Bosh's shots come from 16-23 feet, and that is the only area he is superior to Boozer in. It's pretty damn obvious watching them, without me having to use stats.

To be fair Odom *****ed Love in the game that he asked for the defensive matchup. Love had a field day against Pau early in the year, but Odom shut him down, kept him off the glass, and got his in Minny after telling Phil he wanted Love that game.

- Odom should be in over Pau.
- Duncan should be in because of his record and defensive impact on that team as there is no way the best record should be represented with just 1 all star (Parker should be in as well)
- Blake shouldn't be in at all either if Love isn't in as Z-bo and Aldrdge are actually winning by carrying their teams and putting up numbers, but I get that Blake is the more loved player and that he is still winning more than Love whose team is on par with the Cavs who everyone ridicules.

I see what you're saying, but if that's the case he would have worried about the backlash of not picking another Bull because they have identical records and the Heat already have two.

When did they rename it the "best commonly used statistical halfseason game"?
Its the AllStar game.

Duncan is also a much better defender. The fact that he has to defer scoring opportunities to other good players doesn't mean arguably the best PF ever who is still playing at a high level should be left off of the allstar game roster.

Also on the skills issue, does anyone think Kevin Love is a more talented basketball player than Tim Duncan? I'm curious.

Very glad to see Blake as an all star. He has ABSOLUTELY earned it; this BS about him getting in it due to fan/media appeal alone is utter BS. This guy is making a dead franchise relevant again.

Maybe instead of gaining weight, he should've voted for Love 24/7, then Love could've made it. Love deserved it, but coaches care about winning. Could people make a strong case that he deserved it over: Dirk, Griffin or Duncan (team has best record).

The Spurs always have atleast 1 guy on the All-Star team, and Duncan has been their engine for a decade.

-and remember I said Joe might make it in over Felton for name recognition and Knicks fans all thought it was a stupid idea?

Damn shame there is only 1 Bull and 3 Heat, 4 Celtics, and even 2 Hawks. I know Boozer missed 18 games, but Deng has not missed a game while putting up great numbers, and playing great D. Damn Shame

No, he made it because he's been a star in this league for awhile. Do you disagree with his statement?

Tim Duncan should probably be in an old folks home playing bingo, not in the all-star game

is this a joke? Nash got Robbed. The guy has put up 1 of his best statistical seasons with little to no weapons and doing so with 2 different teams before and after the Orlando trade. Losing Amare and Richardson and yet he still is putting up 17 ppg 11 apg and shooting over 50/40/90

You called it. I remember that. It was during the Knicks easy schedule though and that was when Felton was on fire.

Everything he's done this season, Gasol has done and hes having a bad season. Plus, no one votes in a fool that trips over his own bag and misses two months.

Hes just mad because hes jealous. Probably couldn't find 2 other superstars in their PRIME to take him when he was playing.

Yup. Barkley campaigning for Love is like getting Roethlisberger to be the spokesman of the no means no campaign (Don't get mad steeler fans, I'm cheering for you guys this week :)).

Sure he was right, but any NBA fan with common sense can see that it's a travesty Love was snubbed. Chuck contradicts himself so many times that it's hard to take him seriously most of the time.

IMO Love should have made the team over Blake. I think Love got snubbed. Maybe Duncan decides to sit and rest, allowing Love to get a spot. Odom/Aldridge would be next in line after that, IMO.

Yahoosports says that Nash is "the likely" replacement for Yao. If that happens Gasol or Duncan will start at C.

Tim Duncan over Love is far from "a joke". It's a close call - but both are deserving. Duncan's per-game stats, etc. may be down, but a major reason for that is because his minutes are just at 29 a game right now; saving him for the post-season. That said, he's still been fantastic and is a true legend of the game who is still putting up the production that is absolutely VITAL to his team having the best record in the NBA. As great as Love is, the Wolves are a bottom 5 team, and that contrast makes a big difference to NBA coaches.

K. Love is on the up 'n up, and I'm a true fan, but he'll have plenty of chances at the All-Star game. Like Monta not making it this season, per-game stats simply aren't enough to eclipse teams with great/proven players on winning teams in the coaches minds. Get that team to start winning a bulk of their games, and we can have a more serious "SNUB!" debate.

At this point though, the picks are perfectly fine.
