Pierce: 18.9 pts 5.7 rebounds 3.9 ast 42% 36% 3pt

Deng: 17.4 6.5 3 44% 34% 3pt

George: 17.3 7.8 3.7 42% 38%


All 3 have a claim to the reserve role thats for sure. very similar stats across the board. I think just with the recent struggle of pierce he has been overlooked.

On another note, so glad that David Lee got the nod for All star team, guy has played stellar this year

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
Paul George, Luol Deng, and Josh Smith all plead a really good case as well.
I like Marcus Smart

Deng is not an all star but anyone like myself who has Paul George on their fantasy team and is forced to pay attention to his stats knows that he has been an absolute monster for the past few months, he is a no brainer. He is average 20 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 2.5 steals per game in january.

I don't know, but I think Smith, Lopez, and one of Jennings/Ellis [their stats are identical] all should have gotten some attention. They are all pretty solidified as playoff teams and have very solid stats. I would kick off Deng and probably Holiday...

Why Jennings/Ellis over Holiday?  Is it just because of Milwaukee's record?

Otherwise, I don't think there's much of an argument.  Jrue is having a better year basically across the board.

No-no, I didn't say I would definitely take one of them over Jrue [he probably still deserves the edge] - just that it seems that he was an obvious choice while on a losing team and his stats aren't that amazing. I get Kyrie - he's the 6th leading scorer in the NBA and is an up and coming star.

But, yes, I do take record into consideration and the Sixers are just not that good, while Milwaukee has been quite surprising this year.

Frankly, I would probably put Lopez on there above KG or Pierce...

Paul Pierce does not deserve to be an All-Star, not with the way he has been playing lately.  Dude looks like a scrub.

I appreciate everything he has done as a Celtic over the years, and do not want him to be traded under any circumstance, but, good grief.

I'm sorry but I don't think pierce or Garnett deserve all star nods this year.

Frankly, the bigger joke is the Nets not getting a single All Star while being what, a game back of the Knicks? Lopez should be in.

I really cant stand the Nets and Im glad the Nets didnt get an All Star. They really dont have any players deserving. Williams certainly hasnt had an All Star year. Joe Johnson started out terribly this season.

Even Lopez doesnt deserve a nod in my opinion. Chandler and Noah are both more deserving than Lopez is. Their games are more complete and they actually rebound the ball. Both players change their teams mindsets defensively.
