No basketball games till Thursday, so thought letís keep it entertaining and get some debate.

Simple question.

If every player who took place in ASW (ASG, 3 pt, dunk contest, skills, etc) cannot return to their team for the rest of the year, who wins?

Letís do two answers. If Kawhi comes back this year, I am assuming everyone says SA, but letís assume he doesnít.

Now pick your NBA Finals champion.

Too hard to figure out who was involved in any all-star event from every team, then too hard to figure out who has the best team left. Sorry ... I can't have an opinion without someone else doing the research of what rosters will be left.

I'd put Milwaukee as a contender too. They play a different game b/c of Giannis but their lineup consist of

Bledsoe
Middleton
Parker


and some pretty good role players

I'm sure they'd adjust their game around MIddleton/Parker, who can both probably put up 20+ per game

How many teams in the league in this exercise would still have a top 10 caliber player AND solid depth around him? One team. The Houston Rockets. Let's take a look at Houston's lineup without Harden and Gordon:

PG: Chris Paul / Markel Brown
SG: Joe Johnson / Gerald Green
SF: Trevor Ariza / Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
PF: Ryan Anderson / PJ Tucker
C: Clint Capela / Nene / Brandan Wright

The only other potential answer would be the Spurs if Kawhi comes back healthy, but assuming he doesn't, I don't think there's a legitimate answer other than the Rockets.

So you're telling me that you'd pick a Raptors team whose best player is probably Jonas freaking Valanciunas over a super deep Rockets squad led by Chris Paul? How can you justify that?

Heads up: Raps have a STRONG bench. You might not recognize some of those names but those dudes are some ballers.

I agree that I'd take the Rox minus Harden over that Raptors team minus DeRozan/Lowry, but I can understand why someone would put their button on the Raptors.

I do agree on the Spurs but I'm out on the Rockets. Those guys need Harden way too much IMO. That team is too old to run with a super young team minus the MVP IMO.

I'll put it to you this way - why dont we trust the raptors? 3rd best record in the NBA. 2nd best differential in the NBA. Best home record. Is it not because you know their duo of stars is just not in the same category of the games elite? So are they better than we give them credit for or are we saying something about how good the other 10 guys are.

What does "take place in" mean? Did you mean "took part in"? If so, I'll point out how Jimmy Butler technically didn't take part in any all-star festivities. He'd run roughshod over the rest of the league in this scenario, at least without Kawhi.

Rockets by default.

Would have been Pistons if Drummond didn't replace the injured guy.
