That wasn't my point. I'm saying this season Bynum is undeserving of an All-Star spot due to not playing at all and not being healthy. If the All-Star ballots were kept the way they were, Bynum would've likely been voted in as the East's starting center despite not deserving it whatsoever. The only two centers in the East who should even be All-Stars this year are Bosh & Varejao.

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.
Why can't Marc Gasol make it again? Literally nothing has changed about All-Star selection except for fans voting 3 frontcourt players instead of 2 forwards and a center in the starting lineup. Everything else is exactly the same.

I think you're over-exaggerating with the small-ball thing. The only teams that play small-ball like you're referring to are the Heat & Celtics and they only play it because they don't have a good center. The Knicks are playing small-ball temporarily until Amar'e gets back. You best believe that if the Celtics or Heat acquired a starting caliber center they would've started him. There's a reason Miami was trying to trade for Marcus Camby during the offseason, there's a reason why there's rumors of the Celtics trying to trade for Marcin Gortat. Small-ball is pretty much their only option right now, it'd be more successful for them start KG/Bosh at the 5 and play small instead of starting guys like Joel Anthony or Chris Wilcox at center.

And if I'm not mistaken, no one in the West is playing small-ball. Small-ball is just something Miami had to do because Bosh got hurt

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.

6 front court players make it, correct?

Durant, Griffin, Love, Dwight, LA, Dirk(for some retarded reason), Duncan, and ZBO would all get in over him. Probably even Ibaka.

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.

There is no limit for reserves, there could be 7 PG's as reserves. There's no limits as far as position go when it comes down to voting reserves.

But typically the way voting goes it ends up being around 5 backcourt players and 7 frontcourt players total on the roster.


An another subject, it's funny how originally Philly was considered by many to be the winners of the Dwight trade but fast forward now and they're looking like the biggest losers of the Dwight trade.

Kobe missed early morning shoot-around with flu-like symptoms. I'm fully expecting a Jordan-like performance tonight.

Kobe has been waiting for his flu game since 1996. It's Mamba's time to shine

Kobe had 40 points on a very effective shooting night. If he won his game>Jordan's flu game.

I guarantee you the Bobcats would have made a comeback if this man stepped onto the court:

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Where Chandler "MVP" Parsons reigns.

btw why does Johnson suck so much? I admittedly haven't been able to see a lot of games this season due to only having a laptop to really watch them on(and my internet was out for like a week which was even worse) and haven't really gotten to see many other teams besides the Lakers so I'm legit curious as to why he's playing like ass.
