    Reminds me a lot of the Pacers for most of the season, actually.
    No doubt, something is going on in there.

    Hayward's really good, but if he or Draymond beat out PG that'll be some BS
    No kidding but I've read several projections that have Green as a second team pick. Green is a good defender but not DPOY caliber IMO and while I'm a fan of defense scoring has to matter at some point. If he makes any all nba team with his 10 ppg that's a travesty.
    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    Gobert being out is a freaking bummer.
    Can't help but to think if this effects Hayward free agency if Gobert misses playoffs or worse.

    Team success matters.

    Truth be told, all three are deserving.
    PG's the more complete player of the 3 IMO, but yeah they all deserve it. PG being the best player and only all star on a playoff team should give him the edge

    Gordon Hayward was the only Jazz All-Star.

    Clippers stole the Pacers defensive strategy.

    Weird how many players from this 2 teams look and play so old.

    I was thinking Gobert made it. He probably should have.

    I can live with Hayward I guess. Still think he's not on Paul's level, but I'm biased.

    I agree that he probably shouldn't be in the All-NBA conversation. That's what the defensive all-NBA teams are for. But he is easily in the DPOY race, and probably the favourite - he is IMO the most versatile defensive player in this league, and allows you to have so much flexibility on that end of the floor.

    ...do the Clippers know the playoffs have started? Zero intensity from anyone outside of Chris Paul.

    Only weak part of his game is scoring. He probably could score more if the Warriors needed it, but I think he's worthy of an All-NBA slot. Draymond is really, really ****ing good.

    Blake Griffin is getting dominated by a 35-year old small forward.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
