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 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 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.
I tbought chris copeland deserves an honorary vote
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.
second team has a very high playmaking skill :-D
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.
