    Why is every one of your threads hyping up Kobe Bryant or the Lakers? Its weird. Rockets fans, by and large, don't care for the Lakers in case you didn't know.

    Is you obsessed wit Kobe? ALL you do is start threads about him or go on and on about how great you think he is in other threads.

    It's gotta be Dirk. He sucks on D, but as far as the last shot, there are few better. He doesn't need space either I think that's very important.

    You know it's a reputation thing with Kobe when he's #3 among the best defenders in the league among GMs.

    I still don't get how people think Kobe is a top 5 defender? He never guards the best player anymore for any stretch, and he never shuts anyone out that is of relevance.

    You can tell when a team votes for themselves...one player gets 3.7%...

    what is funny is "who would you want taking the last shot"
    Miami Heat - Dwayne Wade..hahah obviously only 1 vote from Miami and that was for Wade..0 votes for LEBRAAHN

    I don't think they were allowed to vote for their own players. So Orlando voted Pau best center, and DHoward was the unanimous pick of the rest of the league!

    I think GMs are not allowed to vote for anyone on their own teams. It was Orlando that was forced to vote for Pau.

    48% voted for Kobe. So that means more than half of the GMs actually know something about statistics. :p
