    Not shabby, but you gotta swap D-Will with Paul. Paul is playing great ball this season.

    PG - Paul
    SG - Kobe Bryant
    C - Pau Gasol
    PF - Blake Griffin
    SF - Kevin Durant

    Nah, CP3 started the season well leading the Hornets to the best record but has fallen ever since. His stats are down in almost every category from last year. I'd take DWill over CP3 by a very slight win, he's having a career high in pts.

    What I want to know is how the hell does Hosuton keep winning games?

    The only category D-Will has Paul beat is Points. Otherwise, Paul leads cats while playing less minutes this season and his entire career and taking less shots in his career. Pretty sure he is doing well right now with an 8-game win streak. And the Hornets would be nothing without him orchestrating the floor.

    Either way, D-Will or Paul are great players. Hell, even Westbrook is having a solid year.

    I know CP3 is doing better than DWill is most cat (practically even in ast though) but the point is CP3 isn't having his best career and DWill might be. The arguments of where the Hornets be w/o CP3 doesn't work because where would the Jazz be w/o DWill? Keep in mind DWill has led the Jazz to like 10+ game of comeback from double digit deficit, dudes no slouch and having a career year.

    Agreed though, both are great players but I feel like DWill always gets overshadowed by CP3 and DWill deserves to be in that ASG starting line-up than CP3.

    I cosign what RFX said, Paul is playing great but D-Will is playing better IMO. And to be fair Manu should probably be ahead of Kobe but on one wants to see Manu in the pick-up game that is the all-star game. I wish somehow Eric Gordon would make it at the 2 spot.

    Manu is having a significantly better season than Kobe.

    We're talking about THIS year, 4 or 5 other SGs are having a better statistically then Kolorado Kobe.

    No one's entitled to start in the All-Star game just because they're on the Lakers who won LAST year.

    Pau deserves it. Kobe deserves to be on the team, but not start.

    Odom deserves on the team as much or more than Kobe.

    It's a popularity contest and for the most part the best of the best starts, Kobe is one of the best players in the game. He is one of the most popular in the world and leads the league in votes. No matter how you look at it, he is deserving that spot. You're crazy if you think otherwise.
