    I love Kobe but he’s not better than wade this year and all defense please… Pau 2nd team is even more of a joke. Blow this team up while we can… That trade for Pau sure looks lopsided now in memphis favor.

  • laffsatu

    watched every game he played this year…..maybe the all-AVERAGE,team….give me a break.

    These selections lose more credulity every single year … disgusting. How do the players who bust their asses all year long feel when someone gets selected on the merits of “reputation” rather than production?

     Do they have a First team for Whiners

  • Purple and Yellow 4 ever

    How come my boy Luke Walton always gets over looked? Only one thing wrong with this story, Kobe will never be on a team with anyone until he grows up and actually learns the game.
