I'd just send a 4th G. If I had to pick outta that group though, probably Parker.

He won 75K for hitting that shot and then he got mauled by LeBron.

That's great*. They even interviewed him with Lebron.


I say this as long as that lawyer dude suing the Spurs doesn't get him as a client to sue Lebron for back issues.

I think more people would love to agree with you if it weren't formyour history of trolling in the baseball section.

It was lebron's own half court challenge. The sponsor probably paid the $75,000 prize, but just to put things into perspective - LeBron makes about $225,000 per game in NBA salary (plus travel, lodging, and meals on top, plus endorsements). Pretty good life right there

I'm well aware of that.

What I'm also well aware of is that Tim Duncan is averaging: more Points Per Game (17.5 to 16.7), more Assists Per Game (2.8 to 1.6), is a better 3 Point shooter (40% to 25%), a better free throw shooter (82.6% to 50.3%), less fouls (1.8 to 3.6) and his team is tied for 1st in the West with a 35-11 record. Dwight Howard's Lakers are tied for 12th in the West with an 18-25 record.

Oh and btw, Duncan posted all those numbers averaging 5 fewer minutes a game than Dwight as well and FWIW, Duncan is also 9 years older.

I love that the fans are involved, but the fact that an 18-25 team has 2 starters and Steph Curry didn't even make the damn game is a joke.

If you are well aware of the fact that Dwight is there because of fan voting then why you feel the need to point out Duncan being statistically better is beyond me. I don't see anyone in here trying to talk up Dwight, he's there on fan voting, so there's no argument to kick him out because he can't be, it doesn't matter if Dwight averages 1 point per game, the fans voted him in so he's there. All Star voting is a popularity contest, the stats you've went and pulled up mean nothing, right or wrong that's the way it is.

So if you want Curry in, which one of Harden, Westbrook, Parker are you dropping out for him? the answer of dropping Dwight out does not work sorry. That isn't an option that was available when the team was being selected and Curry missed out. If Curry was to be in, it would be in place of one of those guards selected, so if it's such a travesty that Curry isn't there, then which one of those guards are you cutting for him? or, if you want to add an extra guard, who out of Lee, Z-Bo, Aldridge or Duncan are you dropping out?

I guess Parker, but it'd be hard. Sorry, I was just venting a bit

I'd honestly have no problem dropping Lee or Aldridge for Curry.

I agree with you, if I made the rules then Timmy would be starting for sure.

Howard has been a default pick for most of those who vote for such a long time now though

The Nets are so unpredictable. Who knows if they'll destroy teams, or get punked by 30. I love Bropez, though. Total snub for the All-Star team.

not many positives from the 76ers this year but it does look like Holiday can turn into a star.

How many times are they going to play that damn Durant commercial, about only his mom believing in him. I dont know if you guys get it in the States, but every commercial break here has the same Durant commercial playing.
