Wow, isn't this the first time in 8 years that Duncan Hasn't made first team?

05-17-2006, 04:23 PM
That actually looks...about right to me. I would argue Shaq being first team if Yao hadn't gotten injured, but otherwise, nothing to complain about from me.

05-17-2006, 04:38 PM
If Yao made the playoffs, I think he was a lock for First Team

05-17-2006, 04:38 PM
And I am glad they didn't just put Tim Duncan on the first team by name

What, no JO?

What, no JO?
41 players got votes, yet somehow they missed a top 10 player.

There must be some mistake. Didn't JO just last week remind us that he was a top 10 player in the NBA?? But according to this list, he is not in the top 40.

05-17-2006, 05:07 PM
What, no JO?


What, no Ron Artest?

What, no Brad Miller (though he did get 4 votes)?

Looks like no Pacer, past or present, got any love.

05-17-2006, 05:47 PM
Looks like no Pacer DESERVED to get any love this year. I think it's about right.

Wow first time since '98 that Garnett didn't make an all nba team.

I suppose it is natural to point out the injury factor and that jermaine played in 51 games.

But Shaq only played in 59 and got voted in.

If you are good enough, the voters will put you on there somewhere.
