That is just fun.
It’s time to talk about Stephen Curry the All-Star. As in should he make the team? The fans are not going to vote him in, so this would have to be a coach’s choice. Curry is scoring 20.3 points per game and dishing out 6.4 assists per game, is shooting 43.9 percent from three and has led the Warriors to a 19-10 record. He has a PER of 18.9 and should be in the conversations.
The problem is the West is deep with backcourt guys. The fans will vote Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul to start (baring some miracle) and you can’t really argue that L.A. backcourt (David Stern stopped it from being the Lakers backcourt, remember).
After them probably three other guards get the call. Can you pick Curry over James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker or O.J. Mayo? To me Harden and Westbrook are locks, or should be. Which means a whole lot of very deserving players are on the bubble for the fifth spot. Personally, I’d take Tony Parker over Curry, but it’s not out of the question to give Golden State its first All-Star player since roughly Chester A. Arthur was president.
