Day Ninety-Three

What did I watch

No game was on weirdly last night, so I stuck to tennis again. Go Wawrinka! (No, I'm not a bandwagoner or anything, I've been a fan of his for 5-6 years at least).

Nope!

Day Ninety-Two

What did I watch

No basketball, but tennis. I might be interested in more sports than a normal human should be.

Anything else ?

The All-Star talks are getting pretty interesting, especially regarding the possibility of having 4 Hawks players and in the East what to do with both Thunder players out West.

If I had to pick the reserves in the East, I'd go with these fine players :

G - Jeff Teague - Hawks
G - Jimmy Butler - Bulls
F - Al Horford - Hawks
F - Paul Millsap -  Hawks
F - Chris Bosh - Heat
X - Kyle Korver - Hawks
X - Dwyane Wade - Heat

The biggest challenge for me was whether to put Kyrie Irving instead of Korver or Wade. Really tough choice. In the end though, Wade is more efficient, better on D and means more to his team. And Korver has shooting splits of 52-53-92, which is unheard of and completely nuts considering he shoots six 3s per game, and means so much for the Hawks offense (2nd in the East) I had to put him in. He's such a special player.

Out West :

(I believe James Harden - or maybe Klay Thompson - will take Kobe's spot on the starting 5, which is why I will not name him here)

G - Damian Lillard - Blazers
G - Klay Thompson - Warriors
F - Kevin Durant - Thunder
F - DeMarcus Cousins - Kings
F - Lamarcus Aldridge - Trail Blazers (If injury keeps him from playing, put Tim Duncan - Spurs in his place)
X - Chris Paul - Clippers
X - Russell Westbrook - Thunder

Damn this is hard. I really wanted both Zach Randolph and Mike Conley to be there. And they should be All-Stars, period. The West should have 18 All-Star spots. That way all deserving players would make it and no one would ever whine (impossible, but you get the point). And what about no Spurs?

The bigger debate though is both Thunder players, who both missed a lot of games and see their team outside the playoffs picture as of today. Can we put TWO guys from a non-playoffs (for now) team? I say yes, because both guys are still top 5 in the league in PER (Durant would be if he qualified) and by the end of the year, when Durant will have played about 60 games and put up his monster numbers or 28-7-7 with his usual great shooting percentages, how silly will we all feel that we left one of the two best players in the world off a selection of the 24 best players in the league?

Day Ninety-One

What did I watch

The tail-end of the Wizards-Nuggets game since I wasn't home until kinda late. Wish I saw more of that game though since it's a battle between two of my favourites players to watch, Ty Lawson and John Wall. Yeah, I like speedy PGs. Also, I like how Faried blocked Pierce's game-winning shot attempt immediately after he missed 2 free throws with the game tied at 105. Way to redeem yourself, Faried!

Anything else

4-7. Worst day in while for me. Yikes.
