This season was just so unfair to Steph. I just don't understand how he is not an All-Star. To me he definetely deserves to be in the 3rd team but i can also make an arguement for the 2nd team.

Curry averaged 23/7/4 on 45% shooting from three.  Curry also played in 9 more games than Wade. 

 

An argument can be made for either one, but Curry was a far more important player for his team and was great this season. 

 

True. But, it being close makes it not as shocking Curry didn't make it in. I think once you're a fixture on the all-NBA teams(like Wade), somebody needs to be a lot better in order for voters to bump you off.

Wade's D or Curry's D?

 

Curry wasn't an all-star.. He has to wait his turn

 

 

 

I think people FOOLISHLY left Kobe off the All-Defensive team.

 

 

 

I know what a lot of novices will say: Kobe played LAZY D..

 

 

But realistically for the amount of games played this season(Avery Bradley), Kobe was the overall second most effective perimeter defender I witnessed after Allen.

 

And to BOOT, Kobe makes smarter decisions defensively in comparison to Allen. People look at "fake hustle", chasing down a guy you can't catch or diving on the floor, when that might be a worse decision than not doing so, and viewed KOBE BEAN BRYANT as lazy.

 

Ask Brandon Jennings and Kyrie Irving who defended them the best this season...

@LakersReporter

No player, ever, has more 1st team or overall All-NBA honors than @kobebryant. He's tied w/Malone for 1st team (11) and Kareem overall (15).


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

One of the greatest to play the game without a shred of doubt.

If Kobe returns and makes it for the 12th time given the uncertainty, that would be remarkable.

Does this mean he's been a top 3 guard / top 15 player for the passed 15 years?

David Lee became the beneficiary of the Warriors' success and the fact that there are too many guards for them to recognize Curry either as an all-star or an all-NBA player.

Wade is a better player than Curry, but the fact is, Curry carried the bigger load on his shoulders and still put up very, very impressive numbers.

Honestly, a lot of NBA awards aren't handed to players based on their overall abilities, and usually, more comes into play (look at the MVP award). Can you guys truly tell me that both Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook are better players than Dwyane Wade? If you hand them their own team, with no other stars, would Parker and Russ be able to carry them to a top four seed in the playoffs?

The same question can be asked about Marc Gasol. There's no way he's a better player than Dwight, even though we're discussing just one season. Gasol won the DPOY, but he's not a better defender than Tony Allen...who is his teammate.

So, if we're considering everything, Curry has to get the nod over Wade, or else Wade belongs in the 2nd team, above Westbrook...and at that point, you make a decision between Westbrook and Curry (which goes to Curry).

I like Curry, but David Lee was a huge part of that team. And looking at the whole season, the Warriors had a negative point differential and were lucky at the injuries to the Mavs and Lakers.

But whatever. Wade had a poor year.
