Looks like Allen Iversen, Vince Carter, T-Mac, Steve Francis, Yao Ming, Ben Wallace, Andrew Bynum have also done it in the 21st century.

I thought the list would be very short and more prestigious Sad

Basically whether to pick Boozer or Lee.

The issue is that Lee doesn't play till 3:30 my time and Boozer plays at 1am.

I could risk Lee and if he's injured i have one less player or go with Boozer as the safe option and risk the possibility of Lee playing and almost certainly getting better numbers.

Although this is probably more suited to the Fantasy thread hmm

Not sure why would you help a guy you are facing though hmm

Pick the healthy one, if someone's coming off an injury, it could mean lesser minuted and a worse than normal game.

He's at least been confirmed to be starting though.

Go check the stats or even watch the videos on youtube. Durant racked up points when Battier/Haslem/Wade were on him. Could hardly score when Lebron was on him(that's not to say he doesn't score at all with Lebron on him but you get my point).

And switching other players on him for stretches during a game is not Lebron "getting scared", its the coaches decision, to ensure Lebron is closer to the basket to be able to help protect the rim more often since Miami doesn't have much rim protection. Times when he's out guarding Durant/Westbrook, you'll notice Miami have Bosh and Birdman/some other big together in the game.

And if we're gonna talk about getting scared, how many times do you remember Durant guarding Lebron? Laughing

Sigh.....

So its Durants fault Lebron wanted nothing to do with him untill selected parts in the game? Go away with that, Lebron cant check him and you know it.

Why you talking about KD checking Lebron, that wasnt part of the discussion at all.
Question: If you had to pick ONE player in the league to guard Durant in the 4th quarter of a game, who would it be?

Probably Lebron....the last say 3-4 possessions, Kobe pre Achilles, but any longer than that, Lebron.

What point are you coming to? Noone can stop Durant, not with today's rules.

Most superstars in today's game can't be "stopped", you can only slow them down. At least the top 3-5 players in the league.

Quite interesting that you'd actually think of Kobe and not a Paul George other than Lebron. Kobe? KOBE? This isn't 2008 mate. Kobe can't defend a superstar, not right now. And don't bring up the ASG against Lebron, thanks Laughing

My point is, Lebron is your best bet in the league to slow Durant down.

Kobe was a great defender last year when he wanted to, his body just had played too many minutes to do it consistently.

Paul George...no, I dont think so...he doesnt have any advantage over Durant.

Yes, Kobe...contary to popular belief he could still check people...his defensive problems are soley based on him not caring and not respecting scrubs...but anyone who bothered watching knows he can check a guy 1 v 1 for a limited period of time.

He can be tencious and aggressive, fronts the post, grabs jerseys, fouls and can get away with all that because he is Kobe.

And I dont know why you said "right now" when I specifically said pre injury.

Im sorry, why cant I bring up the ASG? Was Lebron not stopped for 2 straight possessions in convincing fashion?

Lebron is the best bet? And? Where are you going with this?

LI said he cant check him...and he cant...just like anyone else.

Exactly.

We all know he is almost a decade removed from his physical prime, which means he cant score 30, defend the best player on the team the whole game and do it for 82 games...everyone already knows that.

However, defend someone for 2-4 possessions only...he did and could do that.

Did he not destroy Kyrie when he tried it with him at the end of one game last year?

I genuinely believe not coming to this thread and debating about Lebron for the last 3 years has extended my life tbh.

First things first, Give me some solid rim protection.

Then, depending on how the refs are calling the game, give me either prime Artest or someone smart and composed like Sefelosha and hope for the best.

@Mole - we rarely used to talk about Lebron lol.

Wonder what changed  Rolling Eyes 

Anyways, my opinion on the ASG line ups if truly based on merit.

East I feel should be

Wall
DeRozan
George
Bron
Hibbert

Wade missed 10 more games already than DeRozan. Whatever arguement one makes against DeRozan (team record for example) already applies worse for Irving.

Other 6 guys can be Irving, Wade, Stephenson, Melo, Bosh....next 2...Drummond and...bah, I dont know. East sucks balls. Struggle line team.


West

CP3
Curry
KD
Griffin
Love

Back ups Harden, Parker, Aldridge, Cousins, Howard. Davis and Lillard can collect the last 2. Dirk and Duncan are deserving too but...over who, hard to say.

Should be another SF from west though, only Durant can play that position. Gay is probably next best

Agree with it all Dani except for Love over Aldridge.

Aldridge has been by far the best PF in the league this season IMO.

He really should be starting, I'm quite disappointed he isn't actually.

Hopefully the coaches make the right move and vote him in as a reserve.

If they don't. :facepalm:

Still can't get over that the picks we gave up for Eddy Curry became Aldridge and Noah.

You know what, leaving LA out of the starting line up was actually a brainfart moment. I just made sure I put him in the team without thinking of him starting for some reason.

He should start, but Griffin comes out not Love imo. As much as Blake has improved, Love is still another level in my opinion.

Well he could, wouldn't be ideal. Kobe is probably the SF if he plays. If Kobe isn't ready for the game, who should replace him though?
4 PGs, 1 SG, 1 SF, 2 Cs and 4 PFs is a little weird mix of positions for the west though.

Pretty sure I read Kobe hint that he isnt going to play.

I dont think it matters how the mix works. During the game its quite easy to get either Harden or KD at the 3 for the duration.

When you got for example, Lillard, Parker, CP3 and Curry on the roster its fairly easy to find the minutes in the guard position. Both Curry and Lillard like to gun anyway.

And up front, you could consider Howard, Cousins and Davis all 5's and Love, Blake and LA the 4's and work from there. Its tough trying to split minutes 3 ways but it always ends up every year 1 or 2 guys playing like 8-10 minutes only.

Anyway I dont know who is going to replace Kobe but really I think more important that where players play on paper is who is deserving. The West is stacked with options so I think if someone is selected it has to be on merit. With the talent on the roster, you can figure everything else after.

I like Gay, but he had to many issues with the Raptors early in the season to ignore when trying to compete with guys who were MVP mentions (Davis, Aldridge) or dominating all year (Cousins, Love, Griffin).

I wouldnt be upset if Howard got thrown off. Houston's defence was better last year when Asik was in there, so basically all he has been is a more athletic version of Asik who scores 8 more points. But still, he gets it over Gay for me.

That's how I feel about it anyways.



On another note, while noone is matching Melo's hot half...Duncan did have 14, 11, 2 and 3 blocks at the half. Up to 16 and 13 now early in the 3rd.

Lowry is a rebound away from a 3 quarter triple double.

Griffin has 10, 5 and 5 and he has played not even 15 minutes yet.
