he's not xbay... i mean, as much as i think he was the best rookie, Evan's stats will make him the winner. Which sucks, cuz Curry was much better in the second half.



Too bad there's two halves....


I don't know man. I don't base my feeling cause I'm biased. I think it's an NBA thing.

Thing is, if Evans wins... I can only base it upon stats. I mean, look at what he had to work with up in Sac. Granted, the talent was completely better than ours, but he had more unselfish players to work with. Curry had to work with Maggette and Monta and bunch of d-leaguers plus Turiaf and Morrow.


That is exactly why I thought that what Curry did was more impressive. Evans was THE GUY in Sacramento. In fact, they traded their former #1 guy Martin just to show everybody that Evans was the guy there. Curry had to deal with all kinds of adversity, and that included dealing with some very me-first players who needed the ball in their hands just to have success.

They had no choice but to trade Kevin Martin. Pure volume shooter, doesn't make anyone else better. Curry had 2 "me first" players to deal with, they don't show that in the stats though.

i think kobe gets in there because he is known of his super defense against his own teammates - like freezing out gasol and taking any shot he can get just to not let the big euro fella be THE man.

Haven't seen the all defensive team, can't find it.

The all nba team has been named and first team has Lebron and Dwight as unanimous selections, Kobe, Wade and Durant. Obviously not by position anymore or do they consider Durant or Lebron a PF.

Second team is Carmelo, Dirk, Nash, Deron and Amare.

Third team is Duncan, PGasol, Bogut, JJohnson and Roy

I see Kobe and Lebron as odd picks in that first team. Lebron plays defense, but I've never seen awesome consistent defense from him, maybe someone can elaborate if indeed he is. Definately interesting teams

Both probably shouldn't be there this year. Lebron is good, but I don't think he's the top defensive SF... but hey, sometimes rep is enough to propel you to these awards.

I dont see nearly enough of EVERYONE in the leauge to gauge defense but I think Wade should have made it over Kobe for sure.

D-Wade should definitely be ahead of Kobe.
