Here's How I Had It

Shane Larkin (POY)
Mason Plumlee
Joe Harris
Erick Green
Seth Curry

2nd team

CJ Leslie
Richard Howell
Lorenzo Brown
Reggie Bullock
Kenny Kadji

3rd team
Akil Mitchell
Scott Wood
James Michael McAdoo
Durand Scott
Quinn Cook

I had Curry instead of Howell, but Howell is deserving and good to see him get some love.

I cant argue much with the 2nd team either, I had Leslie there instead of McAdoo, but McAdoo was a more consistent team leader than Leslie. A lot of times Brown, Howell, Wood, or Warren led State moreso than Leslie did.

I like my 3rd team better. Wood was deserving for all the 3's he hit this year and Miami deserved another player on the team...you can say Scott got jerked here. Scott was more deserving than Booker or Anderson because of what he did for Miami and the season they had. No problem with Snaer making it, he has been all FSU has had, and he has hit some daggers this year.

CJ Leslie

I really think its BS that CJ Leslie is on third team while, McAdoo is on second. They have about the same averages but CJ shoots a much better field goal percentage! Richard Howell averaged 13 and 11 but he's on First team. CJ avg 15 and 8 and he's all the way down to 3rd? McAdoo avg 15 and 8 but was 45% from the field while CJ was 53%. Im jjust wondering on what the deciding factor was between CJ and Mac and CJ and Howell.

I'll tell you what it was.

I'll tell you what it was. CONSISTENCY. I am a UNC guy but I picked McAdoo for the 3rd team. I can see why he was voted to 2nd team ahead of Leslie though. McAdoo was more valuable to his team and he showed up more than Leslie did. McAdoo led UNC most of the time. Some games Bullock didnt do much and Hairston was out with concussion. Meanwhile, McAdoo was all they had to rely on sometimes. His shooting was not good, but his hustle and defense was pretty good. Most of the time he rebounded the ball well too.

Its not about averages. You could count on Howell for a double double every night. You didnt know what Leslie was gonna show up, CJ or Calvin. Howell was along with the other guys on the 1st team and Seth Curry the most consistent performers in the league. Howell had 16 double doubles this year and at least 5 times he missed a double double by a single point or field goal.

Also

I thought Durand Scott shouldve made 3rd team as well... He had a good year for a team that won the ACC title

Scott got jerked if you ask

Scott got jerked if you ask me. Booker or Anderson shouldnt have made it. Compare what they did statistically to Scott and then look at where their teams finished. BC #8 and Clemson #11

i feel like all of these

i feel like all of these all-conference teams can be flip flopped anyway, i mean you look at some guys on the 1st teams and they have done the same thing as guys in honerable mention, i dont really pay attention to this stuff

Little weird

It's strange to me how Ryan Kelly makes the all acc honorable mention team despite playing only 3 acc games. And honestly I feel Seth curry should be on the 1st team over Howell. I don't quite understand that one. But then again that's prob just the duke fan in me

Seth Curry was definitely one

Seth Curry was definitely one of the Top 5 players in the ACC this season. They were just not going to put 2 Duke players on the first team unless they finished with the best regular season record.

Proud to say I got the first

Proud to say I got the first team completely right when we did our predictions a week ago.

I thought it was funny Ryan Kelly got an honorable mention even though he only played 5 ACC games lol.

Erick Green named POY

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/virginia-techs-erick-green...

I dont have a problem with it because he wasnt really some selfish chucker. He shot almost 50% from the field and dropped 4 dimes. VT's record was more a reflection of how bad the rest of the team was, rather than Green's play.

Larranaga was COY, no surprise there.

Hanlan was FOY....now this goes back to Booker and Anderson making 3rd team for me...TJ Warren may have cooled off later in the season, but he led the ACC in FG% and made over 1/2 of his 3pt shots. He was my pick, after him wouldve been Sulaiman. Sulaiman cooled down too towards the end but he was really crucial in some of Duke's wins. A few of those games they wouldve lost had he not stepped up.
