    Was just about to post here. Good lookin out, Kings.

    I'm fuming over the Westbrook snub, over LeBron or Giannis starting at Center just so people could see him play, and about Kyrie starting over three guys who deserved it far more. I'm not sure the All-NBA will be any different, as I bet Kyrie gets it above Lowry, Kemba, and Isaiah. All of these guys -Russ, Embiid, and Kemba- overcame serious injuries to play at a ridiculously high level and aren't getting their historical due for it. Lowry at least FINALLY got the nod a few years back thanks to Bieber and has been deservedly in the conversation ever since.

    Have to agree there. All so LeBron or Giannis can play, not to mention putting Durant at PF so they could start him.

    Reserves announced. To me the biggest snub by far is Whiteside. He's still putting up huge rebounding and blocks but now is scoring like an All-Star as well, averaging around 17 a game. Ridiculous he didn't make it.

    Jamal Murray is the Rising Star game MVP after leading World Team with 36 points (9 threes) and 11 assists in 20'. Frank Kaminsky scored 33 for USA Team, he too hit 9 threes.

    The fact that Kris Dunn couldn't even crack the rising stars roster says a lot about what a humongous bust his rookie season has been so far. The highly touted fifth overall pick in last years draft has been a major disappointment thus far. Many thought he would challenge Rubio for the starting spot in Minnesota but forget that he is backing him up and even doing poorly at that.

    Haha Frank The Tank! He really seems to be coming into his own this year. Good for him. He's a talented player. Needs to be tougher down low though.

    ...yes, victory, MVP award and series new scoring record (surpassing Wilt Chamberlain's 42-point mark of 1962).

    You really think that a game like this needs center or any kind of position?
    They just shoot 3pt and make dunks with no defence at all
    It was like you watching the Saturday three point and dunk show
