    TriBoro Gigolo 2 months ago

    Embid probably wont start if he's still injured so drummond should take his place , butler should be starting tho. Even tho Trae young is a rookie, i would start him, he's one of the best guards not just in the east but in the league.

    The NBA internet is not a safe place if you're a fan of Ben Simmons, which I am, unfortunately for me. Sure, I'm the *idiot* who thinks Ben should've been picked over Kemba for the past two All-Star games, but still... I can understand calling Simmons overrated. I can understand criticizing his jumper. But I don't understand saying he's not an All-Star.

    Ben Simmons shouldn’t start period. This not even hate let’s just be real, philly is 6th seed? Ben is averaging 13-14 points? Did he not regress? How can you think about picking him over Kemba?

  • Tony Rame
    Tony Rame 2 months ago

    Jimmy could NOT guard Kawhi last year in the playoffs, only Simmons managed to slow him down a little. Simmons has been killing recently since Embiid has been out of the lineup. He definitely could be a starter if he keeps playing like this before the break.

  • Adrian Henderson
    Adrian Henderson 2 months ago +1

    Butler and Simmons ain’t starters! They ain’t putting up the numbers and get too much credit for their team winning! Heat ball without butler. LaVine is an all star and can take both of their spots. Gotta throw D Rose in the conversation with Middleton

    • nmessai215
      nmessai215 2 months ago

      Adrian Henderson why do you think Kemba is a starter, because he’s putting up good numbers on a team with a good record. Record plays a huge part in all star voting. Why do you think Devin booker has never been an all star? If the suns were in playoff contention, same with the bulls. Both those players would be all stars

    • Adrian Henderson
      Adrian Henderson 2 months ago

      nmessai215 man his team is way better than the bulls pieces so yeah they are winning more but all of the bulls wins strictly we’re because LaVine has to do some crazy Kobe stuff and win the game

    • nmessai215
      nmessai215 2 months ago

      Adrian Henderson Simmons is actually leading his team to wins tho. And his numbers are 16, 8, 8 and 2.1 stls. 1st in steals, 4th in assists

  • Danny Foglesong

    Ben Simmons shouldn't even be all Star if he can't shoot the ball.

      Nightrain92 all stars r based on individual and team performance my guy...9-31 after 40 games is horrendous. He can be a reserve tho

    • Nightrain92
      Nightrain92 2 months ago

      @THE WOAT that's a stupid argument imo. He has zero help, especially with Collins missing 20 games

    Trae Young, Kyrie Irving, Giannis, Siakam, Embiid

  • Legends of Sleepy Hollow

    I can't believe what I am reading on these RUclip Streets. KLo isn't deserving because his team wins without him. What is Leadership? That's leadership - when your team can fend for themselves and hold it down when you aren't there. If the team can't hold it down because you aren't there, you are a POOR LEADER but a Great Player who is d@#$ selfish.

      Subba Kumpatla He’s averaging 16-8-8 and he’s elite at everything on the court except scoring.. and even then he’s still giving you 15-20 a night

    • coldskin1
      coldskin1 2 months ago

      @Kyle Drumm ben simmons stats is barely all star material. Even non all stars avg more than that. And trae stats is laughably better than ben simmons over 12 pts higher and avg more assists

    • coldskin1
      coldskin1 2 months ago

      @Kyle Drumm elite scorer? 16 pts per game is below avg for an all star. An elite at the bear minimum should atleast over avg 22 pts game. 8.5 ast is barely above avg on its own. john wall and chris paul could avg 18-20 pts ppg and 10 assist per game.

    • Kyle Drumm
      Kyle Drumm 2 months ago +2
