Thumbs down Bruce Arthur: A thumb down to the NBA Awards electorate

Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is down to a tiny slice of the electorate that votes on NBA awards. Now, democracy's a messy business, and everyone has a right to their opinion. But when that opinion, as a professional NBA writer or broadcaster, is that Andrea Bargnani of the Toronto Raptors deserves two votes for the All-NBA third team - the same number as Chris Bosh, incidentally - well, then you've lost the plot. Yes, Bargnani can score. But if you understand basketball well enough to know that the term 'one-dimensional' is not a compliment, then this conclusion is just plain impossible to reach. There were other dubious votes cast, sure. There always are. But somewhere out there, there are two voters who need to defend voting for someone who doesn't know what defence means.
