The main topic of this throwdown is NBA All-star talk, I have a coulpe of problems on who got in and whose starting so here we go.
My first problem is with AI and Carmelo Anthony. When you have done absolutley nothing and played with no heart all season and you are a starter, that is saying something with the fans basketball IQ. They aren't even the best players on their team, with that distinction going to Marcus Camby, who was robbed of his right to be an all-star reserve. In my opinion Steve Nash should have been the starter at point guard and put Kevin Durant as a reserve guard with Chris paul and Brandon Roy. It is sad when street cred, not play determines all-stars.
My second problem is in the East. How is Jose Calderon not in the all-star game. He is light years ahead of Joe Johnson this year, and is out playing the trad me please dynasty that is Jason Kidd, who is starting. Other than that no problems with who got in the all-start game.
This isn't a problem, but an opinion Baron Davis should of been in the all-star game in one of the wild card spots. Either him or Marcus Camby are better than Boozer.
Last night ESPN had a great game featuring the Blazers and Cavs. The suprising Blazers had ther lead for most of the game until a heckler said something that put fire under the belly of King James who lit up the Blazers in the fourth and scored a reverse layup in the dying seconds to give the Cleveland Bron Brons the win. Later he called out the heckler durring an interview saying he cost his team the home court advantage. I'm not sure, but the whole deal with home court advantage is the fans heckle the players. Personally i love when players don't let the fans bother them, but instead give them a little extra push to do something incredible.
Wedsenday's MVP is LeBron James.
