Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.
Andrew Bynum, if healthy, would have 100% been more deserving of being an allstar than Bosh. He only got popular last year and that's because he played exceptionally well. He earned his popularity.
Anyways, that still annoys me though as now most centers won't reach the ASG while small ball FORWARDS will. That's basically what I was saying in my last post too. I hate small ball and feel like it's ruining the game more than making it more interesting. It's just a lot of fast breaks and poorly contested buckets at the rim. Sure it works really well for the Heat, but I don't feel like they should have implemented it in for the ASG. Bosh isn't a center, whether or not his team plays him there, as he just doesn't match up well. KG and Duncan do, with the latter actually being a true center like Pau is a true center, but KG just happens to be an amazing defender capable of playing center, but still is a more natural power forward.
One of the main reasons it annoys me is because we'll likely never have Marc Gasol in the ASG again even though he's one of those true team players that also happens to be really good as well as really talented(like Iggy in the guard position). Guys that are more flashy will still get in over the players that deserve it, but I guess that's because the ASG is a fan thing while the All NBA teams are for the guys that are actually good at their positions.
"Kobe first injured this shoulder in the preseason, according to sources. Has been playing w/ it all year. It just got worse last night"
After suffering the injury, he simply started shooting with his left hand rather than leaving the game.
