NOT AS MANY SNUBS AS YA'LL THINK
alot of people keep saying this or that guy got snubbed but many dont deserve it since the nba is going by the "are you winning rule". since you cant really tell if a guy is puttin gup numbers because hes good or because hes on a bad team, they decided to make it simple and put guys who are doing well on a winning team. and in some cases a guy who is the second best player on that team. im sure if you put hortford on a bad team his number would go up. although i probably would have picked josh smith but i can understand al's pick because hes a center. and no josh smith should not have been picked over paul p. as you can see by the roster no players on sup 500 teams got picked and i can agree with that because they are puttin gup numbers on bad teams. that doesnt mean they arent good but you cant really tell how good like you can with a guy on a good team putting up good numbers.
The way it seems to me is that the coaches are going by whut guys have done the past few weeks..Thats why Derrick Rose got in..My only complaint is not naming David Lee..I think if someone gets injured Lee should be the 1st guy named as a replacement in the East..I can understand why Gasol got in over Kaman..Even though Gasol has missed about 15 games..The Lakers play better when he's in the lineup..And the Clippers losing record hurts Kamen..I see why Billups didnt make it..Becuz he's been out the past month..plus he has to deal with a ton of other talented guards like Paul, Williams & Roy..I mean which 1 of them are u going to leave out? Remember Nash & D-Will didnt make it last season..I think if Charlotte wasnt vying for a playoff spot..Gerald Wallace wouldve not been voted in, that spot wouldve went to Josh Smith..My friend said something that seemed amusing..He said with the lack of white players..And everyone saying the nba is mostly black..Why not add David Lee & Chris Kamen 2 white guys..To influence young white kids that they could make the league also..lol..I told him you dont add guys just to be tokens...Lee & Kamen derserve to be there based on how well they've played this year..Not becuz of their skin color....
i agree if they weren't going by how well youre team is doing. but since thats factor thats why kamen and lee didnt make it and d.rose did
I agree with you guys, I think Lee got snubbed, but I my beef isn't with Rose making it, it's with the fans voting Iverson as a starter. There are a couple such picks every year so it's not surprising, but kinda sucks a guy averaging almost 20 and 10 got snubbed and there is a guy averaging 14 and 4 starting who also happens to play on one of the worst teams in the east
I love Josh Smith and it would have been extreeeeeeeemely awesome to watch those athletic combos of LeBron, Dwight, Wade, Rose and J-Smoove putting on a show... Damn!
