    Congrats on Ben Simmons being picked as an All Star... :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I voted pretty much everyday this month and voted for him each time... so I’m pretty pleased to see him get in.

    Pretty shattered that we couldn’t get Steven Adams in.

    To be fair... the front court for the West is soooooo stacked... it was always a long shot for him.

    It’s pretty f**king amazing he was rated about 6 or 7 in the West after the Fans, Players & Media voted.

    Commentators suggesting philly now have the best starting 5. At their best...I can see some merit (outside of GSW) but the problem Brown will have is getting them all to fire at the same time. If he does - good luck finding teams that can stop them scoring big. Harris is shaping as a strong addition

    They are way too young to compete with GSW in the finals. That will be 4-0.
    Cousins in now back to his best so they are 2 superstars, 3 all stars and a finals MVP.

    Watching all of OKC’s games this season... it’s been amazing to watch Paul George.

    He’s really been something else this season... I don’t think he’s going to end up as MVP... but IMO he deserves consideration.

    Dude is elite as a scorer this season... only really overshadowed by Harden who’s on a crazy run...

    But the dude is front running for DPOY... unbelievable...

    I don’t give a f**k what anyone says... Paul George is right the f**k in the middle of that MVP conversation... what a f**king BEAST!!

    i don't think GSW are as good as they were, but beating them 4/7 games is whats going to be difficult

    embiid hasn't played since all-star game. few rumours starting to float around that he may have injured himself in post game celebrations mmmm

    I love watching Okc fail. 3 MVPs and they kept the one that can't shoot :):D

    Bucks
    Celtics
    76ers
    Raptors

    WEST
    Warriors
    Rockets
    Thunder
    Spurs

    Lol. NBA officiating as consistent as ever.

    Danilo Gallinari - “what foul?” - gets a T
    Doc Rivers - “we just want consistency” - gets a T

    Draymond Green - “that’s a f**king foul! You gotta f**king call that shit!” - all good
