    Lebron is still young, watch out for him when he matures up and starts taking control of the games.

    Lebron is not in his prime yet like Kobe. When he gets there, he will be one of the best there was in the NBA. Already he is better then most in the NBA.

    Ryan I realize this is individual performers however I would like to add the Suns starting line up. Currently watching the Griz and Suns. Griz only give up around 87 points per game and the Suns scored 64 by half time.

    Suns have a good offensive team, very typical of Steve Nash. But one thing that Nash lacked on the Mavericks was defensive skill, they coul score all day, btu so wcould there opponents.

    Centralcalcat whats your opinion of the Suns D? Whats your thoughts on the Suns D with Nash compared to the Mavs D when Nash was there? I think they are pretty much the same , maybe the Suns D is slightly better. The Suns just shoot the lights out which I think makes up for the lack of aggressive defense. i realize this is slightly off the threads intentions but I didnt want to start a new one for this topic.

    Yah, you're right Mike! They did jip him last year as well. How could they not have the seventh leading scorer in the league on the All-Star team? I mean 26 points per game is no joke. He's been on several highlight reels so I don't know how they can not have him on that team?? :confused:

    Ohh and they invite T-mac and Yao to the all stars. I dont get it I watched both of them play last night and what a horrible performance by both. Granted T-mac has been hurt but is he really derserving... I dont think so

    Carmello is a quiet player i notice that about him. You do not hear much from him vocally as much as you do other players, at least not on the west coast that is. TMac has had a horrible year and I do not know how he made it over Carmello maybe because the games is in Houston this year. The All star game is more of a popularity contest. That proboly had something with him not getting in. Shaq daddy made it and he has not had such a stellar year all so.

    T-Mac had a heck of a performance in the All-Star game. He hasn't had the best year, but we all know of his capabilities on the court and the fact that the game was held in Houston probably didn't hurt either...But Yao Ming making it over Carmelo.??>?? Give me a break! He is pitiful! He's a big stick figure that plays softer than any center in History. Another player that comes to mind when you think of playing soft, Tim Duncan. If Tim Duncan played aggressively he'd be a huge force inside, but instead he takes the majority of his shots from ten to fifteen feet from the basket.? Lebron was amazing as usual. Kobe looked good as well. Carmelo got jipped again, maybe next year.
