^ That's the "biggest individual numbers" list.

Hibbert is a much better defender than Drummond or anyone else on your list. Drummond is often like a bull who sees the ball and attacks the ball. Hibbert knows how to play. Indiana's defense is up there with the best of all time. He's going to be the DPOY by a large margin.

Hibbert does an amazing job of altering shots. Quite easily the best in the leauge right now. He uses that ridiculous length so well when he just extends and stays straight up. He gets them lots of possessions without getting the cookie of a blocked shot in stat ledger.

You're pretty speedy. Of course it is. Exactly how do you think they pick all stars? The question is not who is the better player its who gets selected to an allstar game

Ben Wallace was all team defence more than an allstar and didn't
t get selected one year when he won defensive player of the year. Same with Rodman, 2 time allstart, 2 time defensive player of the years, did not get selected in one of those years when he was DPOY.

This is why DD gets selected ijn my list over other players...but you don't see you bustung a nut about that.

Hibbert over drummond? Meh. Possibly because Drummond is young and will be there in a couple years anyway.
He came outta retirement?

Hehe. Well, I guess we'll just have to wait a few more days and see if Hibbert, Noah, Dwight make the All Star game. Defense is part of how you judge who's been 'the better player' this year.

ask wade about any active player and you'd get the same answer, just common courtesy ...

DeRozan is a lock to make it,hopefully Lowry does to as he is more deserving than Jeff Teague.

FC- Noah
FC- Hibbert
FC- Millsap
BC- Lowry
BC- DeRozan
BC- Wall
FC- Drummond (but coaches will probably put Bosh in)

Had to EDIT my reserves,had Stephenson initially but John Wall is undoubtedly an AS this season.

Bosh deserves to be in, Stephenson - meh. If they pick DeMar, yep, hopefully Lowry gets in too. DeMar over Lowry would be so unfair. Lowry has arguably been the best guard in the entire conference this year.

Davis can't be snubbed. That would be absolutely ridiculous.

I wouldn't take Bosh over milsap, noah or jefferson to be honest. All those 3 guys have better stars while basically carrying their teams on their backs. Bosh had the chance to carry a team, either here or in houston, but he chose to the easier path, I'd rather reward the other ones. Hibbert, milsap, noah and Al would be my selection.

Easier path? Bosh is playing better than all those guys. Easily. He's carrying his team often enough as well. Try to be a little objective.

bosh is carrying his team? Hm ... ok, if you say so ... Hopefully they get rid of lebron and wade and replace them with some real players, so Bosh is not held back by dead weight. I mean, he's averaging 40 ppg when playing without lebron and wade, that's saying something, no?

If Lowry doesn't make the all star team he is going to drop 40 and 10 for the rest of the season.
