Bradley Beal?

& how does Brandon Knight beat out Isaiah Thomas?


Why the question mark after Beal?

Deciding between Knight and Thomas is splitting hairs. Thomas has been more efficient of a scorer, but Detroit relies on Knight a bit more, and he's better at most every other aspect of the game.

Nice to see Vucevic make it.

A lot more talent there for the sophomores, Good thing it's not just a straight up rookie v sophomore thing any more.

Shved should be here, 5th in scoring, 2nd in assists, and his playmaking/passing skills are made for these types of games.

Lol wtf Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller are crap. Who chose these rosters??

You honestly have no idea what youre talking about, do you? Im not going to argue Zeller because that is splitting hairs. But Thompson has easily become at least the 3rd best player from that draft and has been averaging a double double since varejao got hurt in mid december. Dont be ignorant just because the cavs arent on tv a lot.

Wow no Jimmy Butler......... disrespectful

Not really. Jimmy has only been getting the kind of minutes to prove himself maybe the last 10 games. Maybe you can blame Thibs for that, but it's not long enough to necessarily be viewed as a snub. Shammy said it best in the Bulls forum, he's like Boozer with the ASG: if he made it, he'd deserve it, but if he didn't it wouldn't make him a snub. Hopefully, Kyrie forgoes it for the ASG and Butler makes it anyway.

And I wonder if they are doing the draft again like last year...

I agree... I like Zeller as a player, but Sully has been one bright spot in the C's dull season thus far. Rebounding machine for us and has a nice polished inside game i think should be used more. He fouls out alot but also gets called for a ton of bs rookie calls. ticky tack crap

Kyrie may not play a whole lot. I think it's a similar scenario with Griffin last year.

Umm yes? Since when does getting it right not matter? I'm sure you're a good guy but that was a silly question, lol.

Yeah maybe because he's a center? Never said I was a good guy especially since I'm wearing a jean jacket and even have fake tattoos...

I hope both Barnes and Thompson do great in this event! Also looking forward to seeing Parsons, Drummond and Lillard always knew these 3 would be good.
