With the exception of Shaq (which I would not include) name me any players from the list who are from lottery teams.

Doesnt the NBA realize that Bosh is 20 and 10 guy?

Doent they realize that he is worth more alone than most teams?

Shaq being there shows how weak the C's are

why does the third team have 2 PG's?
I guess position isn't important

Kevin Garnett didn't make it either. And Chauncey is there as a 2 guard or combo guard I guess. That must burn him up.

It's all about the wins obviously. The only one I really question is Dwight on the first team. There's no way he outplayed Yao.

Every guy mentioned made the playoffs. Bosh stunk this year in terms of inspiring and leading. He doesn't deserve to be on the list, stats aren't everything.

dwight made history leading the league in boards and blocks, on top of being the DPOY, he was a lock from the get go for 1st team. He might disappear sometimes, but no more then Yao when he is tired, which seems to be half the game.

So it is all about stats? I don't think so.

Paul Pierce is not a second team player and Dwight Howard is definitely not a first team centre. Those selections passed based on name.

JO got a vote, ha.

I'd put Paul in the first team ahead of Kobe.

Sure. But it works both ways. If we have to trade him, it may hurt our returns.

Bosh didn't deserve to make a team. He might've played good but depends on if your team played well also. This is not surprising news and I don't really care that he has been left off

Pierce was pretty amazing when he needed to be. I'd give him the nod. And the C's ended up with the second seed when it was there for the taking for another team. The Magic just faded when they could have made the leap.

the list looks fine to me.... Bosh doesnt deserve to be there.
stats dont mean squat when your team is in the basement of the league.

in Shaq's defense, what other C desreves to be there?

Yeah - I almost thought it would have been nice to see Z there. But Shaq did play extremely well.

What negotiations?

Not much to negotiate when the player is expecting the max and knows someone else will give it to him if the Raps don't.
