    Who makes the all star team in the west?

    Player A: 21.5 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.4 apg on 45% FG, 41% from 3, 22-18 team record
    Player B: 20.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 3.1 apg on 43 FG, 44% from 3, 22-19 team record

    Or neither makes the team?

    (If you didn't guess, Player A is CJ. Player B is PG)

    I seriously think Russ has some sort of personal beef with Dame. Or at the very least, when going against him, Russ wants to show his superiority. With Dame out, I think Russ was less motivated to attempt to "show up" his counterpart.

    Should we bring defense into the equation ?

    Also, neither

    While he currently has an impressive lead:

    2017-18 Leaders - Field Goals Missed:
    Russell Westbrook - 493
    Bradley Beal - 413
    James Harden - 407

    It's not nearly the landslide "victory" he enjoyed last year.

    2017-18 Leaders - Field Goals Missed:
    Russell Westbrook - 1117
    Andrew Wiggins - 861
    James Harden - 859

    However, his most "impressive" feat may have been 2014-15 when he missed 15 games and still led the league in Field Goals Missed. That takes serious dedication to jacking up a LOT of bad shots.

    Dame and Beal would be an incredible starting back court

    Westbrook and Fatass Felton have faces I'd like to smash with a baseball bat.
    Maybe a golf club. 7 iron? Maybe 5 depending on the wind.

    OK so I just wanted to put to FUCKING BED the debate that Crabbe is better than Pat.

    Pat:

    WHAMMED OUT on San Antonio. TT didn't want NONE of that play.
    Became the ballhandler on a screen and created his own shot out of it.
    Had a NICE stepback 3 in the OKC game.
    Finshed in the paint with contact and a double pump.
    Brought the ball up and started several plays.
    Played EXCELLENT Defense all night.
    Gave MAXIMUM effort all night.

    I'm tired of this debate. Put it out of it's misery. Pat passes so many eye tests he's the damn Obstetrician.

    I think he is trying to say that every time you see PatC play it is like you welcome a new bundle of joy into your life.

    As with all obstetrician jokes, it's all in the delivery.

    That settles it, Pat is Dead Pool. (How's that for an abortion reference?)

    Pat has made me forget about Crabbe. Pat is legit.

    Pat is, by my eye test, clearly the better all around basketball player. Add to that he plays smart and with maximum effort on every play, and to me there is no debate either.

    :cheers:
