I've had a hard on for Zaza for a decade and always saw him as grossly underappreciated and in need of the right spot.

That said... 2? Ahead of Davis? And DMC? Leonard? Towns? Blake? Gasol? Gasal? and practically every other starting front court player in the west? I mean... come on... he's ahead of Green for crying out loud! That means GSW fans are voting for him ahead of Green?

That could end up landing GSW five AS.

I just don't understand how Zaza is getting that many votes. If we assume that 90+ percent of the votes for Zaza are coming from Warriors fans, then it's safe to assume that the vast majority of those voters picked Durant and Curry. If that's the case, how do those guys only have like 100K and 70K more votes than him? And how did Thompson and Green end up with so few? There must be non-Warriors fans voting for the guy, but if so, where in the hell are those votes coming from and why? And why would they vote for Zaza ahead of Green?

In addition to that truly awful, mind boggling mistake, Wade should not be ahead of Derozan and Thomas, and Curry should not be ahead of Harden and Westbrook. Hopefully these mistakes all get fixed by the end of voting...

A) Golden State fans are not the ones voting for Zaza, it's his country. Did you guys forget last season already? He was a vote leader for quite a while.

B) He won't get in. Players and media now account for 50% of the vote and he will not be on any ballots. Even if he had the most votes of all players, it wouldn't be enough without the media and/or players on his side.

Glad to see Giannis will clearly be a starter, but disappointed to see the East voting for Wade/Irving. Lowry/Wall/Kemba (having a career year) are getting straight disrespected. All have been better than Wade/Irving.

If Embiid stays healthy and gets a bit better this play will be the equivalant of Iverson's crossover on MJ.

For those that don't know, he blocked Lebron 3 times, but who does the above to Lebron.

Lbj was not moving particularly quickly and it was a layup... that he missed (yes, clearly a goaltend... the ball bounced off the backboard before he hit it... it was clear).

you are not taking into account the god aura... meaning the aura around his frame thus when he touched that ball you need to realize the aura around him touched the ball first thus it looked like a goal-tend to the naked eye but really wasnt when you factor in this : )

I'm not saying it wasn't goaltending, granted I did imply it....I am saying it wasn't clear as day as the person I quoted said, if you watch in real time its not clear as day. Lebron was moving slower than he could have gone,. but he was navigating around people, and once he got to the three point line he picked up his pace a bit, and was beat from behind, goal tending or not that does not happen to Lebron. Also look at where Embiid was before he came into frame to make the play. Goal tending or not, that is a heck of a play and not many players ever do that or even think to try.

I also want to acknowledge that I am aware you are actually stating something positive in your last sentence and clearly stating your point. One this site we don't always get a great counter point and positive statement in posts, so I wanted to acknowledge you for that.

Coulda, shoulda, woulda.. Are you putting in the necessary work to get him those votes? Is he vying for votes? Are the Bulls marketing him for votes?

It won't matter much because Butler can get more media votes than Love can, I'm unsure on player votes could be a toss up or a little tip towards Love since he's the only player in the East averaging a double-double on 20+ points and 10+ rebounds.. Only 1 of 16 guys even averaging a double-double in the league..

Far starters yes I am putting in work promoting Jimmy on my twitter account daily

2nd love putting up great numbers as a 3rd option to Bron and Kyrie isn't that spectacular to me . He's doing what he should be doing with his level of talent .


Love is one of 16 doing his thing while Jimmy is 1 of 5 in the league averaging his with the lowest usage % of those 5 players .

Oh and the usage argument , Butler isn't the highest usage player on the team Wade is . Another fact


Kevin Love usage this season is 27.4

Butler is 27.4 as well


Kevin Love usage is currently slightly under what he had in Minny as the main guy .


The Bullsí net rating is +3 when Jimmy Butler is on the court and -10.9 (significantly worse than the league-worst Nets) when he sits.

Okay, maybe you are but I've not seen much from Jimmy himself or the Bulls, not saying they aren't pushing it.. Just saying I've not noticed it.

IDK how a dude averaging 21 PPG and 11 RPG isn't spectacular to you.. Especially as a third option but hey that's your opinion.

Love is 1 of 16 averaging a double-double.. He is 1 of 5 guys in the NBA averaging 20+ points and 10+ rebounds.. The ONLY player of those 5 to reside in the East.. That's impressive to me, even Wall touched on that fact.

I didn't say he had the highest usage on the Bulls but him and Wade are damn close, why I said a 1a/1b option.. I don't think anyone would argue he is the 2nd option, but that's just me.

It depends what site you are using to get your usage stats, without you citing one as a point of reference, they all have slightly different values.

Like i say before, Jimmy can easily grab more media votes than Love, it's how it is. Love will probably get more fan vote because of the great marketing the Cavs have been doing, and mean damn man they got Tristan Thompson in the top 10 for front court players. I'm unsure what way the players will vote, I know some will stick to just their team and people like Wall like seeing Love return to his Wolves form, some will like how Butler has taken that next step in the clutch.. Either way both guys SHOULD make the team, even if it comes down to the head coaches picking one or the other as a reserve.
