Maybe Dirk can drop 50 on your Suns again on the way to pushing them aside like a pest on their way somewhere that Nash can only dream about.

as long as we win he can score 100

And as far as MArion dropping in PPG, im not sure, maybe Amre back is taking away his shots?

Sure they can...the coaches rewarded the Wizards and the Pistons. I still havent figured out why they rewarded the Nets.

They didnt reward the best team in the league. Something's a bit wrong here.

Well, see there's the problem. Dirk scores 50 and the Mavs win. The Suns score 100, and the Mavs win.

It apples and Oranges man. You trying to tell me Arenas and Butler are not all Stars? Billups and Rip are not all stars? You can't compare the number of All star a Eastern Conference team gets, especially in a conference where the star power is no where near what there is in the West.

lol trying to back me into a corner with Nash.

If NAsh passes him the ball and he misses, thats not Nash's fault. I havent had time to stop and see that Marion's PPG were down during our win streak's.

Joe Johnson should have been an all-star, same for Okafor.

I guess the NBA is taking care of its fans.

All this banter from someone that "has sworn off the NBA". Amazing. I sure hope we don't see more of the same melt downs we've seen from you in the past llama in the coming months. I hope this mini bout of histrionics is all we get to witness.

MP is right, i thought you hated the NBA

edit: and btw, MArion is only 3 points off his pace last year, you act like he dropped significantly

We'll see. I explained on another thread why I got sucked back in.

Instead of blatantly attacking people when they have no rationale for their ideas, I usually vent the frustration with questions. Unfortunately, far too many people in the world are unwilling to admit that they have no idea what they are talking about, have only a couple of grains of information to work with, and are completely unwilling to learn. (Ludo, Im not talking about you...you were just the Suns fan on this thread.)

All star game is a joke. Fact that only one dallas player is there and three suns is unforgiveable, and that's not mentioning the obvious ****up of not having the leagues highest scorer as a member.

Llama, you seriously need to get laid or something. You're WAY too uptight about this.

I'm glad Melo's not going. I hope Stern keeps his ass at home. Maybe now he'll wake up and start playing with some damn passion.

Just a little side note...

Michael Redd has been hurt for a couple weeks now and won't be back for a while. Chances are, he's a lock if he's even day-to-day but he's not. Guy just gets better every year.

Marion never has or will never be a great player. What you posted is essentially what Marion does. It has nothing to do with his role on his team. He is what he is. He's not great, but a very good sidekick type player.

24 points 23 rebounds.

Great game by Amare tonight.

Freaking Ginobli and his ball kicking bull. He better be suspended, that was complete crap.

You're kidding, right? That was actually a foul on Amare. It's not Ginobili's fault that Amare's crotch got in the way.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to bleach my skin as I just defended Ginobili.

Stern needs to right this wrong
Posted by Marty Burns

The NBA announced its All-Star reserve squads Thursday night, and let’s just say David Stern can thank his lucky stars that Yao Ming and Carlos Boozer are injured.

Not that the Commish would want to see any player hurt and unable to participate in the midseason classic.

But at least now Stern will get to pick two replacements – and correct the injustice done by the league’s coaches who somehow left off Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and Dallas’ Josh Howard.

Anthony and Howard were two of four guys who got the royal shaft. The other two were from the East: Atlanta’s Joe Johnson and Chicago’s Luol Deng.

Clearly there were other deserving players. One could make a case for Marcus Camby (Nuggets), Elton Brand (Clippers), Baron Davis (Warriors), Ray Allen (Sonics), Kevin Martin (Kings), Zach Randolph (Blazers) and Mehmet Okur/Deron Williams (Jazz) in the West, and Emeka Okafor (Bobcats), Eddy Curry (Knicks), Ben Gordon (Bulls), Tayshaun Prince (Pistons), Antawn Jamison (Wizards) and Andre Iguodala (Sixers), among others, in the East.

But while those guys might have been All-Star worthy, they weren’t more deserving than the guys that made it.

Only the four guys mentioned above have a legitimate reason to call the FBI and demand an investigation.

Johnson is one of the NBA’s top 10 scorers (24.7 ppg.) and he’s been a consistent force all season. It’s not his fault the Hawks stink. He should have been on over one of the Pistons guards.

Deng has been the most consistent two-way player for a Bulls team that has been near the top of the East all season. Gordon would have been a fine choice as well, but he faced a much more crowded field at guard. Deng, who is shooting a ridiculous 52 percent from the floor (while consistently knocking down the mid-range jumper), should have been on the forward list instead of Vince Carter, who has failed to lift the Nets above .500.

Of course, neither Johnson nor Deng should feel too badly about not getting in. Were Paul Pierce and Michael Redd not injured, they would have made the team anyway. Then there wouldn’t have been room for anybody else on the East.

But the snubs that will get the most attention for sure are those of Anthony and Howard. The coaches obviously held Anthony’s suspension for fighting against him. Otherwise the Nuggets forward – and NBA’s leading scorer – would have been a shoo-in. Howard, meanwhile, should have made it because he’s become a key two-way contributor for a Dallas squad that has been the NBA’s best all season.

Fortunately for Stern, he won’t have to worry about it. By adding Anthony and Howard, he will be able to end all the controversy soon enough. He should send Yao and Boozer a thank-you note, or maybe tickets to a Vegas show during All-Star Weekend.

A Vegas All Star Weekend? What way is that to market a league? I was thinking a Wednesday night on VS.....

(Sorry had to throw a someone please shoot Bettman who was thrust into the bigs by Stern into the mix.)

The Suns are 1/2 a game back of Dallas, and are 0-2 against them this season.

Dallas went 0-4 until they played Phoenix for the first time. Dallas used Phoenix to springboard off of the mat, and Dallas hasnt been back on it since. The second time they played, PHX went on their cute little runs and Dallas waited in the lurch to reach up and choke them out when it mattered.

I'll believe that the Suns can beat the Mavs in the playoffs when I see it. Until then, enjoy the regular season and quit comparing the Suns to the defending conference champions.
