I think all the issues surrounding Josh Smith and his off/on court issues ended up costing him a spot.

poleandreel
01-24-2013, 08:33 PM
For the people who say bosh shouldn't have made it...

He only gets 12 shots per game and is making 55% of his fgs and 82% from the line with a career high in blocks. There isn't much more he can do with so little opportunity.

If he was on another team, he would probably be starting every year over garnett and/or carmelo. It wasn't to long ago that he was putting up 24/11

Landry fills in for Lee just as well as Jack does for Steph, but that has little to do with whether or not Curry should be an all star. I'd absolutely have him in over L. Aldridge, but I'm actually fine that he's getting a little breather. Just don't go and participate in the 3pt contest or anything. Take the time off.

Lopez and Chandler play equal amount of minutes and Lopez has been far from Average defensively this season. Chandler has been nothing special defensively this season. Noah has been great.

SteBO
01-24-2013, 08:43 PM
Considering Bosh doesn't get a lot of shots and yet still averages about 18 ppg on 54% shooting is still impressive and all-star caliber. Nothing to really debate on that end.

Happy for Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah. Well deserved for both guys. But for as much as I respect Deng and admire his play given the minutes he plays every game, I'm inclined to agree with Chuck and Shaq in regards to JR Smith. NY is just as deserving as Miami is to have 3 guys make it. Jrue was a shocking choice.

The West is just too difficult to really critique the coaches decisions. Steph Curry was deserving though.

Deng has been carrying the scoring load on a team without its primary scorer. He's never been asked to be the number one guy and yet he's still been more efficient than Monta with great defense and rebounding.

I'd say the coaches made the right choice.

Both would be nice but I really feel like he deserved it this year. Curry is still not getting the recognition that he obviously deserves. He is one of three people in the NBA over 20, 4, and 6. He's having a ridiculous season, averaging all-star numbers and reaching 2nd all time in career 3P%... he's still not making the all-star game. Damian Lillard is higher than him in the MVP race. That's ridiculous. Warriors fans like me have been waiting and waiting for him to become an all-star, and now, when he's finally having a all-star season, he doesn't make it. I'm happy that he'll get that week off and that David is making it- because he's strongly deserves it- but deep down it still probably pisses off almost all Warriors fans. Making the all-star game was very important to Steph and he wasn't able to make it.

Who is Paul George? Lopez shouldnt be an all star?

Cmon

I didn't think Lopez would make it in. He's soft and coaches know it. Who is Paul George? He's a small forward/shooting guard that is averaging more rebounds than Brook Lopez while scoring 1 less point a game. George is also considered one of the top perimeter defenders in the game today. Other names you may not recognize are Larry Sanders, Greg Monroe, Nikola Pekovic and David West. All get more rebounds that Brook Lopez. Lopez is 52nd in the league in rebounds per 48 minutes. Thats not good when you consider that he's a center and is 9th in rebounds in the East among centers. He's also not the best player on that team and is probably 3rd behind Johnson and Williams. Paul George is carrying the Pacer, with Danny Granger out, and has got them to similar record as the Nets.

ThaDubs
01-24-2013, 08:53 PM
PER is a condensed box score. It can't properly gauge the actual impact on both sides of the floor. Chandler and Noah are elite defensive players. Lopez is average defensively.

The Nets would not be the same without Brook. Most Nets fans would probably be able to back me up. He was average defensively last year but this year he's made a huge bump. The impact he has on his team is huge, especially at a time like this when different players are required to step up with William's terrible play. I think he's the best center in the league along with Joah and he got robbed like Steph did.

I didn't think Lopez would make it in. He's soft and coaches know it. Who is Paul George? He's a small forward/shooting guard that is averaging more rebounds than Brook Lopez while scoring 1 less point a game. George is also considered one of the top perimeter defenders in the game today. Other names you may not recognize are Larry Sanders, Greg Monroe, Nikola Pekovic and David West. All get more rebounds that Brook Lopez. Lopez is 52nd in the league in rebounds per 48 minutes. Thats not good when you consider that he's a center and is 9th in rebounds in the East among centers. He's also not the best player on that team and is probably 3rd behind Johnson and Williams. Paul George is carrying the Pacer, with Danny Granger out, and has got them to similar record as the Nets.

Chris Bosh made the team which kind of defeats that theory but I agree the coaches dont respect Lopez which I dont mind.

I think it's obvious. Andray Blatche was offensively pretty much putting up the same numbers when Lopez was out. Blatche was great on offense. Our defense took a nose dive though with Lopez. He is a legitmate shot blocker and interior defender. His main weakness is poor pick and roll defense but has improved dramatically on all other aspects.

When the Spurs played the Nets, I watched every minute of the game. Our second and third forwards were beating out your starters. The Nets are one of the most fundamentally overrated teams in basketball. PJ Carlisemo might be pushing more buttons, but in the game I watched they were garbage.

So you base your assumption on the Nets based off of one win? There are plenty of teams that have lost by double digits, even some 20+, but it is a pretty flawed way of looking at it.


I agree on Curry. Brook Lopez has the stats to be an allstar, but when you consider all his other attributes I can understand why he wasn't added. He's not as complete a player as Chandler or Noah. The guy is soft!

This is the typical response I see from some NBA fans. You can easily make the case Lopez has improved in all facets of his game over every center in the league. Actually, I have to give credit to Joakim Noah, who has improved on offense as well. But Lopez actually is in the top 5 in the NBA in PER, and he leads all centers in scoring. He's 7th in the league in blocks, which is actually higher than any of the frontcourt players picked in the East, and he has improved substantially on the defensive end of the ball. Far from Dwight Howard or Tyson Chandler, but improvement nonetheless. That soft label is thrown around by people who haven't even watched the guy this season. This is literally a complete shock to me that he was snubbed.

Curry did deserve it more although it's hard to argue with Lee's production. Most 20/10 games in the league with 17. 26 double doubles (2nd only to Z-Bo and they've been neck and neck all season long). Curry's TO's is what killed his chances, as well as the lack of exposure of Warriors games. In the future, the NBA should make the coaches watch most or all of the film for all the reserve candidates so they can make a more informed decision on who should make it. I love Aldridge and Harden but there is no way that either of them should have been selected as reserves. Neither team has a winning record (If this holds as much weight as what is being said on TV, then those two guys should have been left off). I understand that it's in Houston and the league probably wants a Rocket on the team, but when the Warriors hosted in 2000, we didn't have any representative from our team so that argument means nothing.

Curry is THE most important cog in my Dubs basketball machine and w/o his contributions to this team, or if he was injured extensively, the Dubs would be much worse off, which is why he should have been selected. I'm happy that he will get some rest though and that's more important to the success of our season and to our hopeful return to the playoffs.

HUGE CONGRATS TO D LEE THOUGH!! OUR BLUE COLLAR WORKHORSE IS ALSO VERY DESERVING!

The only thing that Harden has on Curry is the 5 pt difference in points. But thats because he takes a lot more shots than Curry. Warriors are 11 games above .500, while the Rockets are barely there. Unbelievable, coaches blew this one big time.

LOL you are so wrong.

Harden averages 6 more points on 1 more shot. He also has a better ts%/PER/Win Shares

It really isn't close between them. Not to mention, Harden has no lee to help him take the pressure off. I can't count how many times Curry is left wide open for a Lee kick out for 3. Harden doesn't have that. No one is going to collapse on Asik or Pattrick Patterson.

Actually Harden takes 2-3 more shots than Curry. I don't know the other stats but they are pretty much even in terms of stats. I'd rather take Harden but Curry should be in there as well.

Kobe and Howard were voted in by fans. All starters are voted by fans. Reserves are chosen by the management.

I admit, Noah deserves to be in it. But can you explain Deng?

he's a work horse. Most minutes per game in the league. 18 points and 6.4 rebounds. great defender. Ya, he wasnt a lock but the other coaches in the East recognize how hard he works.

Most minutes per league... 18 points and 6.4 rebounds.. great defender.

Only thing he beats Brook at is a great defender. Most minutes per league is actually in his favor since his stats should be much higher.

It seems people are frustrated that Brook didn't make it... Not everyone can. Regardless of who made it, the management felt they fit the team. I would've had Brook in there but whose spot would he have taken? People are going to get frustrated anyways. Deng shouldn't be there though...

Oh yeah Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Steph Curry.

Who would you take out from the West?
LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland)

Tim Duncan (San Antonio)

*Kevin Durant (OKC)

*Blake Griffin (L.A. Clippers)

#James Harden (Houston)

Russell Westbrook (OKC)

Lol! Steph Curry is perhaps the best off dribble 3 point shooter the NBA has ever seen, not to mention the 2nd most accurate 3 point shooter ever. Steph doesn't just shoot 3's either. You sound like an idiot who is clueless about the NBA when you say that. He's one of three people averaging over 20 4 and 6. The other two being LeBron and Westbrook. Like Charles Barkley said, Steph not being on the team is an absolute joke. He is the most valuable player on the Warriors, with D-Lee close behind him. Recently D-Lee has been rusty/injured and yet Steph has continued putting up 20-30 points a night. I love reading posts made by people who have no clue what they're talking about. Lol.

Everyone in the West is just too damn good. Stephen Curry would have no trouble getting into the East. In the West, maybe not so lucky.

:laugh: So let's fault Deng for busting his *** 40 mins a night because "his stats should be much higher"? You do realize it's a lot easier to put up stats when 1. you're playing much less minutes (10 less every night), and 2. you're not exerting energy on defense. Not to mention, Deng has been a playmaker this year with his passing too, something Brook doesn't have at all.

For the record, I think Lopez should've made it, but not over Deng, and sure as hell not over the reasons given.

You make no sense. How do you put up better stats by playing less minutes? He's in the game which allows how him to have more opportunities. I can't believe you just said that. Your reasons are laughable.. You're telling me someone who plays 20 minutes should have better stats than someone who plays 40 minutes? Based off the fact that he's more "tired?" I'm not saying he should be punished for playing the most minutes... Even with Deng playing that many minutes, he's not averaging better numbers than Brook Lopez.. Who the Nets are 2-5 without.
