View Full Version : Who got snubber?

Here are the full All-Star teams now:
West
CP3
Kobe
Durant
Griffin
Howard
Duncan
Parker
Westbrook
Harden
Z-bo
LMA
David Lee

East:
Rondo
Wade
LBJ
Melo
Garnett
Chris Bosh
Tyson Chandler
Paul George
Kyrie Irving
Joakim Noah
Jrue Holiday
Luol Deng



I for one am happy to see Deng get some credit, though the guy who may be playing the best ball in Chi-town was left off the list while two of his teammates were put on it. Boozer is second on the team is points and rebounds. I love that Paul George got on, because he has been playing amazing ball and in a small market, so it's nice to see him get recognition. On the east, the most glaring omission may be Josh Smith. I was really expecting him to make his first All-Star game. I think it could be argued that he is having a better season than Deng.

In the west there are a couple issues I have, but the biggest is the omission of Stephen Curry. I would have like to see Iggy and Ibaka make the team, but I don't think there is a case for them, even if they are deserving. Same goes for Gay. Batum, Lillard, Gortat and DMC are having good seasons (Gortat not as good as last season), but I understand each of their omissions. Jefferson certainly has a case, especially since Utah has a better record than LAL, yet LAL has two starters and Utah has no All-Stars.


If you could sub in two guys for each conference, who would you put in, and who would take out?

Not sure whos the snub but if anyone looks out of place its Paul George.

And are you really fond of coaches selecting their all-stars based on what the fans chose to start?

Cool story bro, but whats the point in calling someone out if you have no proof?

I could just as easily say you dont watch many games outside of Indiana. I have no doubt you watch alot of Pacers games, but sadly your basis for comparison is extremely limited if thats all you watch. So yea Im not going to take your insults seriously considering your in Indiana and likely biased.

But keep thinking someone like me doesn't watch games. LOL.

I am not necessarily saying he deserves it more than anyone else, I just expected him to get selected. The teams with better records usually get represented and he has been the best Net so far. I can't say it's a huge snub, but with the way voting usually goes, I expected him to make it.

if he were a Knick, ppl would be killing the NBA coaches that made that decision. Brook Lopez has been an allstar all season and he has this he's soft BS label on him which they need to re-evaluate. All they have to know is fans are actually more for keeping him over acquiring Dwight Howard. So how is this guy not in the allstar game? he has the numbers, he leads in scoring, he's a rare center in this game, his team is in the playoff spot contending for the top seed, his team is above .500 and there mainly b/c of his influence on the game defensively and offensively, yet homie can't even get the reserves?

I love Tyson Chandler, but he other than the PnR and tip outs that pad up his rebound numbers, he's not better than Brook Lopez, Noah maybe, but KG? are you kidding me? and Bosh?

PER is subjective. His numbers are on par with Bosh. If we werent talking per or Lopez we would be talking about anybody averaging less than but close to 18ish points and less than and close to 8ish rebounds.

I think Lopez is a fine player. I just don't think he is a no brainer AS

His team is one of the NBA's hottest team in wins. You can make an arguement they might take the #1 seed. Nah homie, Mr.Cowabunga/surfs ups is getting dissed. You can't tell me he ain't. Tyson Chandler gets in via his rep over 3 yrs. and Brook Lopez gets a soft rep. That's cray.

Well I'm glad someone notices this. And heres another point, the kids only 24! I realize age doesnt always factor into the votes but this isnt even his peak.

Maybe it was because of the Avery firing, maybe it was because people have a bias about him, or maybe it was because his game as a center is different from others in the league, (as a fan) I'd just like some sort of explanation.

Its not just him playing in the game thats important to me, its him being recognized as more than just an average player. He deserves respect but still falls short to get it.

How can the coaches say Steph Curry ain't an allstar when the Warriors weren't expected to be that good. How is Boozer not in w/ a team of scab role players Noah and Deng. How is can someone justify KG and yeh I'll say it, Tyson Chandler over Brook Lopez? if a fan is seeing that one player scores 6 more ppg, 1 more bpg, better offensive arsenal, and better FT shooter. How is this guy not in? BRK is .5 game back from NYK, this dude is mainly why they are where they are. :laugh2:

JasonJohnHorn
01-25-2013, 03:09 AM
Well anyone who thinks PG is a true All-Star, doesnt have high standards.

George has been playing great ball this year. He's leading his team in points and steals and is second on the team in rebounds and assists, while shooting the lights out from down town (he's the best 3pt shooter on his team). He is the best player on the team that is tied for the best in their division. Their division rival got two players on the team (the Bulls), while the Pacers got one. The Pacers are in position to get home-court advantage in the first round. Doesn't it seem reasonable that if they are one of the four best teams in the East that their best player should represent them on the All-Star team?

And we....? you want to hate on the Nyets hate on them. Don't make **** up.

That team went to OKC and beat OKC, that team took 2 out of 4 against us, that team beat Indy, that team beat Boston w/ and w/o Rondo, that team has beaten the same teams we have, everyone except Miami and SAS. So favorable schedule my ***.

Knicks are 16 - 7 vs East, Brooklyn is 19 - 9
Knicks are 5 - 3 vs ATL, Brooklyn is 9 - 3
Knicks are 5 - 4 vs CEN, Brooklyn is 4 - 3
Knicks are 6 - 0 vs SE, Brooklyn is 6 - 3

Knicks 10 - 7 vs West, Brooklyn 7 - 7

The only arguement you have is we played 8 more gms. in the Southwest than them. Which has 3 teams in the top 8 spot.

Curry for LA but I see whythey went big. But out of the reserve guards Curry could replace Parker . In the East Brook should replace KG and Josh Smith could replace Bosh but Bosh put up very good numbers this year it's just lately he's been a lil off . Still Bosh deserved it , he was one of the most consistent Heat players most of the year . With no Rose Deng and Noah had to pick up the slack and playing damn near 40 min's a game . They're the reason along with the late surge by Boozer are where they at . Paul George deserves his spot , he has turned it on this season and had overtaken Granger as the best player IMO . Looking at the crop of players , injuries and preformance he is the right selection over the likes of Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce . If Rose didn't get hurt I think Kyrie would have gotten left off and Jrue makes it still because I think his overall play has been better .

Best player on a team that is tied for its division is some sort of honor nowadays? He started the year off slow but is catching on of late. If hes been an All-Star thus far its been because of his defensive impact because if you know anything about stats, you would know they arent All-Star caliber.

I like the East, though I can see arguments for Smith and Lopez. Jrue is deserved, especially in a weak season for EC point guards, and I like the inclusion of Paul George.

He may well be the best shooter the game has ever seen.

No but in all Honesty Curry is Averageing 20 points 6 assits 4 Rebounds and 1.7 steals while shooting 45% from 3
and 89% from the Free throw line Tell me where in those numbers he isn't all-star worthy

OK. Everyone of the guards chosen ahead of Curry have a higher PER and WS, WS/48 than he does. If there are players who make it who are better than you are then you aren't a snub. Curry is a very good player, but didn't deserve to be an allstar this season based upon his competition.

It doesnt really bother me, because he's a Net, but Lopez should probably be on this team. He easily could have definitely taken Deng's or Bosh's spot. He's the Nets best player and the Nets are playing great ball right now.

Had Noah/Tyson/Bosh been named the starting C I'm pretty sure Lopez gets the nod over KG.

Every year their are snubs so what can you do?

Lopez got snubbed. Nets fans and analysts are going crazy :laugh2: I don't really see why Nets fans care tbh

All the all star game means is validation. Why do fans need so much validation? Who cares if people do not think Brook Lopez is good. The Nets are the 3rd best team in the east fighting for 2nd and closing on 1st. Yet they have no all stars at all. Only 2 of the top 10 players in PER did not make the team, both play for the Nets. Who cares? It means nothing what people think. Brook Lopez is not a highly marketable player. He isn't gonna talk trash or start drama. He is not gonna dunk on anyone. He isn't athletic in comparison to others in there.

Lopez is not even a great fit for the all star game. The game is so fast paced and i do not want Lopez running hard up and down the court. Would have been nice to see Lebron dishing to him with how good Brook is at getting himself open underneath the basket

Why dont you start watching more games?
My roomate is a Pacers fan, I have prolly missed only a handful of their games. How about you? How many games of theirs have you seen and how many of the league at large?

I've seen plenty of games and in those games he's clearly the reason y they are winning with his defense and offense. For you to make a statement about him being out of place is absurd.

Havent given it much thought. Do you think he was the most worthy? Like I said in my OP, I dont know whos been snubbed but Paul George looks abit out of place.

What does that even mean btw "out of place"? You can't even tell me who is more deserving to back up your claim. Seems to me maybe you root against the Pacers a bit because maybe your roomate gloats about them too much and maybe your tired of hearing about them.

Yea but my roommate aint posting so why would I bring the nonsensical hate here? Its not like I havent told him the same things either. And I wasn't trying to back up my OP, it wasn't intended to say hes not an All-Star it was to point out that if someone did get snubbed, I would take a hard look at him and maybe even Deng. Thats not to say they arent All-Star caliber, but are they the most worthy? Upon further inspection I suppose they are the best, which to me speaks more about the East's lack of quality stars outside a few select teams than it does those All-Stars ability.

You know full well what out of place means, it means among his All-Star peers, he strikes me as the one who stands out in a negative way. As in, not as good as the others.

Personally, I find Indiana's top 3 players to all be comparable, which makes it hard to choose 1 standout on a team thats as good as Indiana has been.

But for argument sake, why does he stand out more than West? Was George chosen as a wildcard? If so why not Hibbert?

You would have a decent arguement with West but I have no clue why you would bring Hibberts name into this discussion. As for the George over West is because George simply does more for the Pacers than West does. Whoever the Pacers play you best believe George is guarding that teams best player(positions 1-3) and does it at a high level everygame. Offensively he stretchs the floor, can run the team, take people of the dribble and isn't afraid to bang down low for an offensive board. Besides all that why would you not give the nod to this guy when he's putting up better numbers than West is?

its a validation for career merits. when you proclaim someone's career, you often quote # of all-star appearances. Hell Brook Lopez fans should be mad that he didn't into the ASG but is he deserving moreso that Bosh, Noah? Argument could go both ways. Only player that everyone should really take out is Tyson Chandler. Boozer, Lopez should easily make it over him.

Far better only because he only dunks. Noah has been the emotional/lead by example leader. He does FAAAR more for his team then Chandler does for his. If you take Noah out from this team presently I highly doubt they would be 25-16. You take Chandler out doubt it would make as much as a difference.

Your arguement should be why is J.R. Smith not in the allstar game instead of Chandler or Bosh cause then you would have a point.

Noah averaging career high 4 assists for a center. blocks, steals, FT% goes to Noah, ppg and rpg are a tie.

Noah > Chandler numbers wise. Chicago also top 3 defensively in opponent fg%, pts allowed. 2 games back of New York, record wise, without their superstar in Rose. more props to Noah.

Agree to disagree, I dont consider that to be doing "more" for his team, I mean hes more versatile because thats his game whereas West is strictly a PF, but thats not the same as doing more for your team. West is the rock to me, hes both a go-to and outlet option who can hold his own defensively. Its no surprise to me that the team falters more when hes not on the court than without any other player and hes putting up the best stats on the team. (You can disagree with that, its a case of tallies vs rates (or quantity vs quality) but I think the minutes are close enough that I cant ignore the vast difference in the teams play and the superior efficiency of West.

Even if we're just talking on a basic level, doesn't George play more mins ? and they're basically the same height. Dwest also grabs more offensive rebounds which are more valuable than defensive rebounds. Once you look at their stats from an advanced level, it's not much of an argument.

While I do like West and I do like his physical play and how he can pass out the double but George has got a developing game, phsyical tools and intangibles of a Superstar.

He's getting more offensive boards which I stated are more valuable than defensive rebounds which offer "diminishing returns", hes doing his part. Also you tried to turn this into a statistical argument, you were better served sticking with highlighting George's intangibles rather than his stats which aren't really that jaw dropping.

I wasn't trying to make it a stats arguement. I just said West shoots a higher fg% and rebounds the same. I know what I see George do for his team more than West does and thats why he made the allstar game by the coaches votes and I side with them cause they know basketball better than you and me.

I'm convinced the users saying Curry over Parker are mentally handicapped individuals that don't actually watch the games. There isn't a single thing Curry does better than Parker besides shoot threes. As far as advanced stats go, Parker's better across the board. Better scorer, Better passer, more efficient, Better PER, win shares, etc. AND he plays six less minutes than Curry.

No disrespect to Curry, but every guard picked ahead of him was better.

Only thing we agree on is that we both felt hes the Pacer the coaches would send to Houston, but thats not the same thing as agreeing with the selection. After awhile you begin to pick up on certain biases, hes the young fresh athlete who isnt that far off from his teams best players. And I kind of feel like Hibbert got punished for all the Centers making the team. Pierce couldn't make it with his team having 2. That just leaves George.

We got our first all star pick in a while, sixteen years
But it came with a twist, I got a smile, mixed with tears
Honestly Lee shoulda started, it ain't Griffin's year
Like Carl Landry tweeted on his Twitter
It feels sweet, but bittersweet. Or sweet n bitter
Our emotions are mixed, I feel ambivalent
The rosters were fixed, this was the equivalent
of giving that center spot to D twelve
Even though we got our first, well since Latrell Sprewell
I'm so pissed off, I won't sleep well, These coaches can go seek hell
we the only team that gave the Clippers three L's :cheers::cheers:
I know Curry was left off by Viny Del
Neegro!! Go eat crow!

Klay Thompson thinks the picks were nonsense
You really got to question the voting process
Really wished David stern woulda stopped this
The last person to reward would be Lamarcus Aldridge


I'm headin to Houston and getting ON THIS
Went in the Locker room and held lamarcus hostage
You didn't deserve it, were 26-15 we earned it
Where is Stephen Curry? He's worth it
Chuck goes on TNT and blast they *****
Time for coach jackson to go Doctor Martin Luther King
stating that this wasn't the right thing for the league
I mean, he's Stickin up for his boys Curry and D Lee
honestly Lee shoulda started with CP3 he he he
We got one all star but 2 all stars woulda been right
Coach Jackson said for a lack of better word that this was a Crime (he actually did)
I guess it just wasn't time, But at the end of the day the coaches should all get penalized
Coaches what is wrong with you? No excuses! Do you know about the wild card selection?

I dont get why people think curry is such a snub. the warriors are 5th in the west, they already have lee on the team. why do they need another allstar

and all the guards who made it over him, deserved it.

Far better only because he only dunks. Noah has been the emotional/lead by example leader. He does FAAAR more for his team then Chandler does for his. If you take Noah out from this team presently I highly doubt they would be 25-16. You take Chandler out doubt it would make as much as a difference.

Your arguement should be why is J.R. Smith not in the allstar game instead of Chandler or Bosh cause then you would have a point.

Your not listing any facts but youre opinion. Of course the team would be worse without Noah. the same could be said of the Knicks if they didn't have chandler.

Chandler's playing less minutes than Noah and putting up similar to better stats. Give him more minutes and his stats and productivity would increase. even in advanced stats, his numbers are better. Has the better per, win shares, ws/48, ts%.

and no, chandler is more deserving of the nod than jr smith.

Because the last 2 picks were wild cards, you can pick any position. Lamarcus was obviously one of those wild cards but they gave him the nod over curry. You can't tell me he is having a better year than curry and his team is much worse as well.

The lakers have two all stars and there like 12th in the west lol

They purposely chose 3 guards and 3 forwards to even it out. Aldridge is deserving.

both kobe and dwight were voted in by fans and deserved to be in the game regardless

Just because the the coaches wanted to make the bigs and smalls even doesn't mean he is more deserving(thanks for helping my point). Also curry is top in 3 pt made, 2 in 3 pt percent, top ten in scoring( higher than lma) and only 2 percentage points away from lma as far as shooting percentage and currys a point. Lma points are down this year and he is shooting the worse of his career, not to mention Portland is a .500 team vs the warriors are 9 games above .500 with wins vs clips (3 times), thunder, heat. Everyone knows he was only picked to keep the team even. He got snubbed!

Ok but whose to say that Aldridge was the wild card and not Randolph or Lee? Curry wasn't a snub because the guards who made it over him were more deserving.

Like I said before, they have Lee on the allstar team, another Warrior isn't really needed.
