Al Horford the all-star....What the heck

Al Horford is not an all-star. He's a decent player, but now the worst all-star selection since Jamal Magloire....

Hordford is averaging 13 pts....are you kidding me.....All-star???? I would rather have had his teammate Josh Smith selected no matter how many forwards are on the roster. A few years ago, the west team had about six forwards on the squad.

Anyway, I would have gone with David Lee, but seeming many players are snubbed at least once (Zach Zandolph, etc) before making it.

Dhamp2....the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.

You heard it hear first...... KRIS JOSEPH will be a star next year.
I was the first to predict Wesley Johnson a lottery pick.
I told yall Willie Warren wouln't be drafted in the lottery (I live in Oklahoma).
There are hundreds of players in the NBA. I chose Carmelo to lead the league in scoring.
How Steve Nash has two MVPs and Kobe one is crazy. You know that!!!
The Lakers will 3-peat
D-Howard is vastly overated!!!!! Like I said all last year on this site.
Durant is scary good. Wow.

Dwight Howard leads the NBA

Dwight Howard leads the NBA in rebounds & blocks.  He also scores 18 points a game.  He also shoots 60% FG which is 3rd best in the league. He also led the Magic to the Finals last season.  

How exactly can a player that does all that be vastly overrated?

Did you see what he did to Boston last night?  He outplayed Perkins & Garnett by himself. Rasheed was forced just to shoot 3's all game.  And you can ask Paul Pierce how tough it is to take it to the rim with DHoward patrolling the paint.

GatorHeels on Dwight Howard

Thank you GatorHeels.

Any individual who knows the nuances of basketball, realizes that Dwight Howard is a unique and powerful force in the NBA.

People who truly understand basketball always proclaim that "Defense and Rebounding" win championships. What are Dwight Howard's two best skills? The answer is "Defense and Rebounding".

Dhamp how many times do i

Dhamp how many times do i have to tell you that Howard is over rated thing is not legit. He does too many things as a big for you to knock his status because of limited offense abilities in the post. Shaq had that issue early on and he was still dominating folks. Everything else you said makes sense though.

Now wait a second. He's

Now wait a second. He's averaging 17 pts...Give me a break. People on here try and make it seem as though Howard is some sort of MVP. He's not.

He's wasting a lot of his potential. He should be averaging 15 rebounds and five blocks; realaistic numbers for someone with his potential. He is what he is. A top 15 player.

And he didn't lead Orlando to the finals. He helped to lead them. Without Turkagulo, that team wasn't going anywhere last year. He was the go-to guy.

LOL........To all of u upset

LOL........To all of u upset that Horford made it over Lee..I heard from an inside source that coaches had Shaq behind Horford as the reserve center.So if he'd gotten a few more votes from coaches.Shaq would've made it. Lee came in 3rd...Followed by Noah then Perkins...

so wait just because howard

so wait just because howard averages 17 hes overrated?..umm have you watched orlando play?..he doesnt average 17 just because he cant do more, he averages that because his team shoots alot of 3's. as far as numbers for there potential you can say that about many many allstars and hall of famers. shaq should have averaged more rebounds and blocks and shoul dhave been a better defender. all these high jumpers shoul dbe doing the same. ....howard leads the WHOLE NBA in blocks and rebounds. in total blocks he has almost 30 more then anyone else. they were just saying on espn hes gonna have or has more double doubles then anyone at that age, after 1980 or something close. yeah thats sooo overrated. just because hes not doing what you feel he should do doesnt mean he's overrated. oh yeah he's only 24. as far as hortford, i dont think hes a all star but i understand they are doing it because they need another center on a winning team. now hes not the worst all star by a mile. i made a list of the worst allstars and i recall tyrone hill and maglore being on it with worst numbers

You heard it hear

You heard it hear first...... KRIS JOSEPH will be a star next year. - Ok, a prediction, you said it first, ill remember
I was the first to predict Wesley Johnson a lottery pick. - looking like a good prediction, ill give you credit
I told yall Willie Warren wouln't be drafted in the lottery (I live in Oklahoma). - still has a chance to go lotto, but you say it like it has already happened, you can predict it but dont act like it has happened yet.
There are hundreds of players in the NBA. I chose Carmelo to lead the league in scoring. - Again, the season isnt over but you say it like he has won the scoring crown already, and way to go out on a limb with that choice.
How Steve Nash has two MVPs and Kobe one is crazy. You know that!!! - is pretty crazy, nash is real good, but kobe should have more.
The Lakers will 3-peat- another prediction, lets keep it mind
D-Howard is vastly overated!!!!! Like I said all last year on this site. - yea d howards overrated, but you are defending david lee because he wasnt an all star. d howard makes everyone on that team better by just standing close to the paint, hell he would make eric devendorf look good, and thats saying something for a guy that cant stay in the D League. And its funny because I remember someone saying that devendorf was gonna be a balla in the league, i dont know who that was but whoever it was should have been humbled by that comment.
Durant is scary good. Wow. - Wow, what a crazy statement. Lebron is scary good too, and Kobe. Funny most of us knew that about Durant when he was in college, but good scouting DHamp to realize that in his 3rd year he is scary good. You are a great basketball mind, just like hubie brown, so good in fact, neither of you have a job with a NBA team. Congrats.

Ha ha ha...I gave you a

Ha ha ha...I gave you a point. I'm glad that you admit that I'm mostly right. FYI, I've admitted several times to being WRONG about Eric Devendorf. I can admit I'm a die hard fan. As far as David Lee, I already said I can see how he was left off. I just don't like it.

GatorHeels on Dwight Howard

Gatorheels got it right on Dwight Howard and I agree with him.

Dwight Howard is a unique and powerful force in the NBA. In addition to all of the positive aspects of his game we always talk about, the man is double teamed every night. That leaves his teammates wide open for those three point shots Orlando loves to take.

People who truly understand basketball always proclaim that "Defense and Rebounding" win championships. What are Dwight Howard's two best skills? The answer: "Defense and Rebounding".

ya thats what im tryna say

ya thats what im tryna say too quincey, i personally dont care if people are right or wrong, but what DHAMP doesn't realize is that he brings so much attention to himself that it creates a negative effect. For example, some average poster says Melo will lead the league in scoring its ok I can see that happening, when DHAMP says it, he repeats it over and over to the point he believes it already happened. So yes DHAMP you are right about many things, but people will always find a negative about it because the way you present it. And I know you have admitted you were wrong about Devendorf but its magnified because fo how sure you are of everything you say. Its ok to be wrong but dont act like you are right all the time, especially with weak predictions. Hell even I thought Devendorf had a shot in the league, mcdonalds all american, good shooter, good handling but my thought is just an opinion, while when you say it, it is more like you are stating a fact when it hasent happened yet.

Wow, it's amazing that you

Wow, it's amazing that you all bash me, but yet make no predictions of your own, lol. Leave it to me not to sit on the fence and be tepid. Yes, tepid. At least I make predictions. Yeah, I said Melo would lead the league in scoring. But, I could have said Lebron or any of the HUNDREDS of players in the NBA. So, that's one point for me. D-Howard averages 17 pts and 2 blks.....Yet people always consider his an MVP....Without ANY post move whatsoever......Heck, I told yall about Wesley Johnson. The very next day their was a profile of him on this site....Hmmmm....As soon as I bragged about Devendorf, the next day, there was a profile on him on this site.....Hmmmmmmm. It's hard to hunt the rabbit, when the rabbit is also armed!

Dwight Howard

I think he was overrated from the standpoint that people were putting him in the same conversation with guys like Lebron and Kobe. He's a good defender that makes a lot of big plays on that side of the ball, kind of like Trevor Ariza. Dwight Howard is extremely limited and still raw, but he produces. If Greg Oden was able to stay healthy and do the same things as Howard, everyone would say that is why Oden got picked first. People were salivating when Oden was averaging 11 and 8.Howard is a game changer. Despite Howard not being a great offensive player he averages 17 points a game on 60% from the floor. If you are Orlando you would like him to develop some moves. On the other side of that you have the rare guy that does not have to touch the ball to be effective. He gets you extra possessions and alters shots and protects the rim. It's hard to say he is still overrated. He has some things to work on, but anyone that says he is VASTLY overrated might want to watch more game film.

My prediction- as great as

My prediction- as great as DHAMP thinks he is, he doesn't get a job as a NBA scout, coach, gm, or even ballboy.

No you couldnt have picked one of the NBA's hundreds of players because everyone knows they wont do it. There were 5 or 6 smart choices for NBA's leading scorer, Lebron, Wade, Kobe, Durant, Melo, or maybe a wild card like Brandon Roy or Joe Johnson. hell if you would have said Monte Ellis i would have respected that prediction more even though he is 3 to 4 points off pace, because not many people expected Monte to do so much scoring with Randolph supposed to be a breakout star, Stephen curry as an impact rookie, and Corey Maggette as a vet that gets to the line with the best of them. No you picked Melo who was the best pure scorer to come out of the 2003 draft, yes Lebron and Wade are close but melo is complete offensively, and is the number 1 option on his team that doesn't feature that many scorers. Martin not a scorer, Nene is a decent scorer, they start Affalo who is a defensive specialist, and then Billups who is the second option and while capable of scoring doesnt do it until the 4th quarter. I could have picked hundreds of players for MVP this year but with all of them I would have been wrong unless i said Lebron or Kobe. And guess what 95% of people probably picked lebron or kobe to win MVP this year but none of them are bragging about it, you want to know why DHAMP, its because it doesnt take a genious to figure out things that have already happened before. Melo is arguably the most gifted scorer in the game so dont tell me that you could have picked any 1 of hundreds of NBA players because you arent that dumb. You knew, along with everyone else that there was a 99.9% chance that it was going to be either Lebron, Kobe, Melo, Durant, or Wade. PS- He leads the league by .1 ppg halfway through the season, it isnt a sure thing. And we dont want to bash on you, we have to, until you realize you are just an average guy with average thoughts just like the rest of us. And we arent going to give you credit for things that other people have siad or already knew.

Why the hate for Dhamp?

Why the hate for Dhamp? Sure his list of things toots his own horn but so what.

Anyways, i think josh smith was more deserving of an all star bid but as far as centers go i would have put brook lopez in. Maybe shaq just because he is entertaining and this is a exhibition game. David Lee is very deserving
