    How anybody could possibly say that Kevin Love does not deserve to be an All-Star is beyond me.

    Sorry, that's not fair to Lamar. Aldridge yes, but all those other guys plus "others"??? No way.
    Lamar is a fine player and my choice for 6th man awards. But he's right at his career averages for scoring and rebounding (14/9) and his assists are down a bit. I dont believe he's ever been an all star (iirc) so why would he be now? Especially when these guys didn't make it to LA:

    Nash - having a better season statistically than his two MvP years
    Randolph - a 20/13 guy on a surprising team
    Monta - fifth in the league in scoring, third in steals. Plus he's one of the ultimate "fun in an ASG" guys
    Curry - not as impressive as Monta statistically but 18/4/6 with great shooting and decision making
    Gay - took a big leap this season. 20 pt scorer with great defensive stats, and became a clutch guy

    Like you said before, the second team could be comprised of any number of guys. I can't disagree with your choices, all great players, but I do think Lamar had an excellent first half this year, filling multiple roles, etc. If he's going to be 6th man of the year, then I think that merits A-S consideration. It's not just stats, in my opinion. Plus, I just wanted to see him pull down some boards and lead the break with Kobe, 'Melo, Durant, and Griffin on the wings. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That said, obviously Kevin Love is better than all those guys....[​IMG]

    Pretty funny tweet I just saw on Yahoo news:
    "BREAKING: Isiah Thomas just convinced James Dolan to trade Carmelo Anthony to China for Stephon Marbury...."

    I never said he didn't deserve to be an All-Star but there are better choices than him. If Minnesota were in the playoff race, I'd understand but their the second worst team in the NBA. Aldridge has brought the Blazers to 5th place in the West, a team many deemed doomed after Oden and Roy went down. That is a great feat right there, he's averaging career highs in almost every category as well. In February, he has been averaging 30pts & 8reb plus almost 2 stls and 2 blks a game, while shooting 58% from the field and 86% from the line. And I cannot emphasize this enough, but he is leading this team to the playoffs.

    I guess we'll be seeing CP3 in NY in the very near future too.

    the knicks would have been laughed out in every media outlet if they had let this deal fail..just the very fact they let this drag on for so long says everything about them.

    i think they gave up too much. denver and melo had no leverage, yet NY gave up so much talent when even with melo this season they still won't compete for a title this year. they could have easily waited until the off season and signed melo and gave up nothing. i know melo wouldn't get the CBA money he'd get if it were a sign and trade, but he seemed so intent on going to NY and nowhere else that i think it's downright stupid that the knicks front office made this trade giving up this much talent. they gave up up and coming young PG raymond felton for the dinosaur that is chauncey bullups. wtf

    I think that Felton is overrated and neither Galinari or Randolph are that great. In return, they got one of the 10 best players in the league, a veteran point who can close if necessary (a huge problem they've been having), and, most importantly, THEY GOT RID OF EDDIE FUCKING CURRY.

    Unfair how?
    I'm not saying he shouldn't have been chosen because he's not so athletic. I'm saying that there were others (Aldridge #1) who deserved it more AND who's game is also more suited to A-S.



    racist. > just kidding

    Felton is a baller and he would only get better. I don't care about Randolph or Curry but Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari are great young peices. Not to mention D'antoni loves Gallo and Wilson Chandler is still really young so the potential is there

    I agree completely. Galinari and Randolph aren't all star players, but just roll fillers. You can always get those.
