    NBA Dish. Not "Kobe Dish". Not "Lakers Dish".

    The GM poll is always interesting, and I'm glad it was posted. But there's no reason to put Kobe or Lakers in the thread title. This is a general NBA poll, not a poll about how awesome Kobe is.

    You know, I couldn't help but notice that too. All the talk about Kobe being 33 this year finally got me to make the connection--not like his posts were hiding it to begin with.

    Kobe only won, because "Big Shot Bob" Horry is no longer in the league.

    GM can't vote for players of their own team, so Magic GM just makes a random pick. It's not a 2nd best vote.

    Its just a random pick, and he happens to pick a perennial all-star?

    Of course, it would only be logical that he picks the next best guy at the position.

    It's one guy's opinion.

    I know. I meant its logical to think that he chose who he thought was the next best center.

    If all the GMs were asked to rank the top 3 centers, would Gasol get the most votes after Howard? Maybe not. Especially since he's playing more minutes at PF this year with Bynum assuming a larger role.

    If it were a big game on the line, can't think of anybody outside of Kobe tbh.

    Looks like the coaches aren't the only idiots in the NBA.

    No Paul Pierce? Id be terrified if he had took a game winner against my team.
