    And yeah I'm being a little harsh on Kyrie, but the fact so many people thought he was superior to Paul last year soured me on him big time.

    Here's an official article of most the players numbers. Not that it's surprising now, but that extra kick in PG's contract is going to come in soon, lol. I'm so glad he's getting love from the fans, am surprised to see him so far ahead of Melo honestly.

    In the joking sort of way, I'm very disappointed Javell McGee isn't higher on the West frontcourt list, I voted for him every time lol, I mean he's about the best form of entertainment you can get.

    Oh and when's the last time the Pacers had 2 all-stars in one year, since there's an almost certain chance (barring injuries) that PG and Roy will make it. Thinking maybe JO and Artest?

    Yeah, JO-Artest in 04. JO and Brad Miller made it the year before that.

    If there's any justice in the universe, the Pacers should have two STARTING all-stars this year.

    Simple confusion, I almost did the same thing myself. Only Murphy made the ASG that magical year, but they both were All-NBA First Team selections that year. Just an amazing year for two of the all-time great Pacers.

    If it wasn't up to the fans then yeah they would both start, but I was honestly expecting Paul at best to be 3rd forward behind Melo maybe by a small number. Now I guess it's pretty much seeing if BAMF could sneak in another forward spot, and getting 3 Pacers in the game, that would have to be a 1st time thing. I don't think that will happen unless coaches really reward record but stranger things have happened, I don't think Lance or Hill have much chance with the backcourt.

    Also, its sort of funny and sad seeing how stacked the West Backcourt is (in a real world Kobe would have no business at the top), that Damian Lillard has NO shot of getting in an all-star game until he at least makes a PG esque leap.

    CP3, Curry, Harden, Westbrook, Parker are all going to be there every year, along w/ Kobe every year until he retires.

    I have to admit I was surprised to see Doc get a standing ovation upon his return considering how he left.

    Boston fans would have been absolute morons to not give Glenn a standing o. He helped restore a dormant franchise to its former glory with the help of Truth, Ticket, Shuttlesworth, and 9. He might have left, but the Boston fans can never forget the fact that the most recent banner was one by Glenn and his crew. You can't take away those memories. Boston fans will always appreciate what he did.

    They have more class than him, that's for sure. At least finally came out and admitted he quit on them, instead of pretending like the accusation was insulting. No problems with him leaving at the first sign of a rocky future, that's his right, but it was rather entertaining watching him puff out his chest for over a year after Simmons said it, only to admit it just this week.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Marv Albert just said on the play-by-play that Deandre Jordan should be in the conversation for the allstar game. Smh!
    Yay, I don't know if we're going back to the play-offs!

    Man Blatche has so much talent he could be making way more than whatever he is making if it was not because he is stupid.

    Well the Clippers is missing a starter and a key rotation player, and on a back-to-back, wouldn't make too much of this game.

    Also, Jason Kidd is still the coach.

    Meh, I think it is a good adjustment that Pierce is playing point forward with the second unit. Pierce isn't running of screens and going for a lot of cuts. They just couldn't have that many ball-dominant players on the floor at the same time
    Their defense still sucked the first quarter, but they should improve. It didn't really hurt them that the Clips don't have any decent bigs coming of the bench. They were playing capt. Jack at the 4 against Blatche, no wonder they got abused. All this smallball crap in the nba is not going to work for most teams.

    And oh yeah, KG should just retire. Dude has no more game left in him. Will be funny to see if he can adjust his attitude, because he's irrelevant and why talk trash when you know you're not going to back it up?

    KG officially lost his "feared player" label when freaking Andrea Bargnani was punking him with trash talk last week. You know you've lost your swagger when that happens.

    KG used to be a feared opponent who you didn't want to set off, but now even his opponents think he is a complete joke. He should just quit right now. If an NBA player's career can be measured in dog years, then he's at the stage where he is the 16 year old with cataracts who is running into things and going to the bathroom uncontrollably in the house. His career just needs to be put out of its misery. He can still rebound, but everything else is just sad to watch.

    KG played at a respectable level last year in Boston. He should have just called it quits with everyone's final memories being of him in green.

    Yeah, I mean this was already a foregone conclusion. Farmar, Blaker, and Nash all out. He's already played PG this season. Lakers don't really have a lock down defender. Might as well.
