kg is probably the one you can make the strongest case against, eventhough you could probably make a case against whoever you replace him with
not against josh smith . id even pick tyson chandler which then would be something to argue about tho. id even argue that randolph, gay or m. gasol shouldve been picked over howard in the west and even westbrook or harden shouldve been picked over bryant as a reward for their success and play during the season so far.
class of 2003 trio! KG > Bosh, good choice
josh smith was desrving to be on the team in years past for sure (and this year too) but he is having a worse season than the last two years, so i don’t know if that should earn him the starting spot. yes, Howard u can argue against, but westbrook over kobe? westbrook is shooting like 41% and kobe has been balling
kg and melo starting together, should be interesting
Tyson? You mean Joakim Noah?
And you can hate Kobe but im pretty sure he’s leading the league in scoring.
Never thought I’d say it, but without bias Boozer should be starting over KG.
kobe has been balling and losing. stars are supposed to contribute to the success of their teams. i think the lakers will pick it up tho but to this point id rather see guys getting rewarded for being successful. i also dont have any problem with kobe starting tho,besides that what he does is not contributing to team success it is still impressive how good he still is and how good he got his body in shape after 17yrs of nba grind
noah too, my bad.
sure, i wont argue bryants election. just a thought that guys should also be rewarded for contributing to team success
KG should not be an allstar..
I agree, really I do, but in this instance..hard to argue against the league leading scorer.
also true. alot of truth in this discussion lol
Other than KG or maybe Griffin, nothing you can really argue about…..
But when the reserves get announced.. that’s when the raging arguments start.
Very, Very Interesting!
Or Maybe Joakim Noah. There is so many more to pick over KG
Oh! And they forgot to put Tyson Chandler, Griffin in the All Star Picks.
Agreed, I’m watching him play now and man is he sucking.
OK, but KG is really the only here who doesn’t deserve it. Naming the reserves should be fairly easy this year though:
West: Westbrook, Harden, Randolph, Lee, Duncan, Parker, Curry.
East (more difficult since there’s really not 7 deserving all-stars remaining, but…): Irving, Holiday, Pierce, Noah, Chandler and then the last two spots should go to either Bosh, George, Ellis, Deng, Horford, Smith or Jennings…
Nuff said!, Thank You!
I really don’t understand why people say “*insert name here* doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star”. It’s for the fans, the All-Star game isn’t really important. All-NBA teams are what matter.
