Think there were any major snubs? Think that I would more than likely have Drummond on my first team, though he did miss quite a few games. Alexey Shved, Moe Harkless, Andrew Nicholson and possibly even Brian Roberts all were vying for 2nd Team spots. No huge oversights in my mind.

sounds about right, besides 5

sounds about right, besides 5 years from now, nobody will remember or care, I promise you there will be players who aren't listed that will be better than Singler and Zeller.

I don't think he got snubbed

I don't think he got snubbed out of making either of the teams, but I was surprised that John Henson didn't even receive a vote. He played really well this year, and statistically was better than a lot of guys that received votes.

The only borderline snub really is Barnes making 1st team over Drummond, but you can't really go wrong there.

They got it for the most part

They got it right for the most part. Drummond could have easily mad 1st team but the 5 on first team played well this year as well. Maybe (MAYBE) I would swap Copeland or Shved with Singler but Its it what it is.

Not that I think he deserves

Not that I think he deserves to be in there, but I think Jared Sullinger had a good rookie year before he got injured. He was the only consistent rebounder on the Celtics this year, and showed some flashes of being starter material in the league.
