Idk about Rondo. I'd prefer

Idk about Rondo. I'd prefer a PG that can actually shoot. But East wins anyways.

you can

you can call him garbage, i really don't give a $hit. the kid can guard somebody decently even when he's not fully recovered.

would be close

east front court would have an advantage. But west backcourt would own the east backcourt. Bynum is way underrated if he's healthy, so it would be close, but I'll roll with the Kobe CP3 backcourt.

I think a D-Wade + D-Rose

I think a D-Wade + D-Rose backcourt could give Kobe and CP3 a run for their money.

rondo

i think rondo has the potential to guard players like cp3. kobe would have some trouble with wade guarding him...but no more trouble than usual for the guy...kobe scores period.

Paul trumps rondon, Kobe

Paul trumps rondon, Kobe trumps Wade, Lebron trumps Melo, Dirk trumps Garnett, Howard trumps Duncan(Replace him with duncan) So west wins in my eyes. Now time for backups...
1. Williams> Rose
2. Roy> Johnson/Iguodala/Carter
3. Durant>Pierce/Granger
4. Gasol< Bosh
5. Bynum< Shaq

lets be real

rondo is a straight scrub unless he has the ball in his hands to run the offense. And you think Lebron and Wade are gonna be on, just standing on the perimeter while Rondo dribbles around? On the west, Paul and Kobe can penetrate while Melo and Dirk spread the floor and hit J's. The make up of the teams favors the west.

Let's see umm... Dirk scored

Let's see umm... Dirk scored 26 points a game last year. Garnett scored 16 a game. C'mon. Let's all jump off his Bandwagon(don't forget to role) now. He's not that good. Don't give me that emotional &$#%#&@!. Dirk is better.

Durant is not better than Pierce and Granger.

I think Johnson is better than Roy.

I'm saying pierce or granger

I'm saying pierce or granger and he is better. He's a better rebounder and scorer than both of them. Johnson and Roy are close but Roy can create more so he gets the edge.

Garnett is one of the best

Garnett is one of the best defenders in the league while Dirk flops when a PG runs into him. You are crazy. Garnett is twice as good. KG also shares the ball with Allen and Pierce. Who does Dirk share the ball with? Nobody. Look at how many shots each player took.

Is defense even a consideration for you. Johnson is a better defender than Roy and Durant plays no D.

You ever think that Garnett

You ever think that Garnett isn't really that good and maybe ESPN just hipes him up cuz he's an East coast player now? He never got that much attention before...

no, no one should think that

no, no one should think that garnett is not good. like you said he scored 16 a game, on a stacked team were he is no longer a 1st option, and was hobbled by injury so not too bad. he doesnt need to score a ton for them to win. I know hes not as good as dirk on offense, but hes one of if not the best defensively still at this stage in his career. he is not hyped, he is amazing

DWAT that is the dumbest

DWAT that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard anyone say. you just made yourself sound like an idiot.

To even compare KG and Dirk based on their PPG shows you know nothing about basketball. that's just foolish. Their PPGs merely reflect their roles on their respective teams, not how good they are or how much they mean to their team.

that was ignorant.

Lebron, Kobe, Wade, Paul,

Lebron, Kobe, Wade, Paul, Howard, Duncan, Williams, Gasol, Roy, Melo, Durant, Pierce, Billups, Granger, Dirk, Parker, Gay, that enough for you? All those players are better and I know that I missed some. By the way Terry and Howard do more scoring than Allen and Pierce yet you say that Dirk has to do more scoring for his team than Garnettt does?

Garnett has always been better then Dirk

But coming off an injury and at like 32 years old, I expect KG to be losing a step next year and it will be closer between him and Dirk. But anybody who watches KG should know that his impact on the game goes beyond points. He supplies a level of energy and defensive intensity that reverberates through the whole team.

Haha did you really put Gay in the conversation. The only players you can clearly make the case for right now are the first 4 players you wrote. I forgot you are only 14 and that you dont realize that his numbers dropped off when becoming part of the big 3. He is one of the best defensive players EVER! He also has maybe the best well-rounded offensive game for a player his size ever as well. He can shoot, drive, finish, pass, and he is a true leader. Something that is rare in the league nowadays.

Garnett is still better than

Garnett is still better than Dirk now, but coming off that injury and his age.. it may be getting closer.
But he is still at the bottom end of the top 10 players in the league.

And Rudy gay is definetly not better than garnett right now .

you guys act like Dirk is

you guys act like Dirk is young and just getting into his prime or something... i'll give you the fact that athleticism is less important to his game, but the dude is also getting old.

of course dirk is getting

of course dirk is getting old too, but Garnett coming off that injury may make him lose a step.
Both are obviously great players, and it is close who is better, but it is garnett.

Dirk does not trump KG.

Dirk does not trump KG. Garnett would lock Dirk down no defense and bully him on offense. No contest Garnett wins that.

East

startin lineup but it would also depend on the bench.
the west bench would probly be deeper which would be better.

"You ever think that Garnett

"You ever think that Garnett isn't really that good and maybe ESPN just hipes him up cuz he's an East coast player now? He never got that much attention before..." dwat4444

I don't even know what that statement means, ESPN hypes him because hes an east coast player now? I don't even get what that means. And to say that he never got that much attention before is honestly retarted..........Garnett was scouted as being a phenom by the time his 2nd year of high school came around. Your 14 and you wouldnt understand what he did in minnesota carrying them to the playoffs year after year. You probably dont appreciate what he did for that franchise basically by himself, because of your age you probably just remember the last couple years that he was with the timberwolves and thats fine. but to say he didnt get much attention before is crazy, he was in all kinds of commericals, won all kinds of awards, had his own shoes. most other guys would agree on here because they understood how good he was in his prime, dats not a knock on you, its just the fact that your a bit younger.

whoever said that

ricks you right Garnett was never onverhyped cuz he lived up to his hype
he was just stuck in minnesota..
he was the ONLY player to ever get alot of hype outta minnesota year after year
and he lived up to it.
Garnett
Duncan -
two best powers in the game today

KG has made the all-star

KG has made the all-star game, i believe, every year except his rookie season (his 2nd season he made it as an alternate)... he's definitely been recognized as a great player for a long time.

KG is legit

I think he is the third best pf ever behing Duncan and Malone. As long as he does'nt do that "anything is Possible" stuff anymore, then he is still great in my book.
