    James Harden really? He's still coming off the bench right? Kyrie is also a bit weird unless they're expecting a Lebron like jump from year 1 to year 2 or something.

    And somebody voted Anthony Davis best interior defender in the NBA without him having played a regular season game in NBA, I dont get what some of these GM's are on sometimes.

    Agreed, How did Vogel not get best offense and best in game adjustments?

    Maybe not for you but the fact that Daron Williams was not in the top 4 point guards was for me.

    It doesn't take superior knowledge of the game or superior scouting to become a GM. You just have to be in the right situation with the right kind of personality. Now if you want to stay a GM that is a different story.

    ....didn't James Harden already breakout? What's he gonna do this season that trumps his play last season? Unless he replaces Russell Westbrook as OKC's #2 scorer, I can't see him getting the scoring opportunities to have a full-fledged, 20+ ppg breakout season.

    I feel that Roy is not getting enough attention for the strong, sometimes dominating paint defender he has become. We saw in last years playoffs times in which teams completely resorted to becoming jump shooters when Roy is in. Just the other night against Atlanta we saw Roy totally control the paint. IMO, right now the only better paint/rim defenders in the league are Tyson Chandler and Dwight Howard.

    I still can't get over the votes for Serge Ibaka being a "great" defender. Being the best shot blocker in the NBA doesn't make up for his inefficiencies.

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Maybe it was the Rockets GM and the Thunder GM that voted for him.
