    Thanks for the link. My thoughts? I am pretty sure Drexler said the same thing about Alston.

    But not a perennial all-star?

    Pretty sure Aaron is a darkhorse for the all-star game.

    Is Brooks going to be a consummate professional all-star?

    I believe he has the potential. 20ppg last season, 40% from 3, good ft shooter, fast as lightning. The kid can shoot lights out when he's on, and even on those off days he's still scary in the open court and behind the 3. I hope he remains a Rocket when his contract is up.

    I think he's absolutely right! Most Improved last season, coming into this season with a healthy roster, I think he's just going to get better.

    And its going to be damn exciting to watch! :grin:

    Is he better than DWill, CP3, Steve Nash, Stephen Curry or Westbrook?

    There is no way brooks will be a allstar with Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Brandon Roy, Kobe Bryant, etc all playing the guard positions in the west..

    Also Clyde also thought Ralfer Alston was a all-star..
    But anyways gooo Brooks!

    Deron Williams
    Chris Paul
    Steve Nash
    Jason Kidd
    Tony Parker
    Chauncey Billups
    Westbrook
    Stephen Curry

    Lots of guys to beat out, and that's only the PG's ... since the all-star game is just divided up as "guards", he'll have to beat out two-guards too.

    I think he does have a shot though to get voted in with the China effect. He was 5th last year, and you have to think that a lot of those votes that were going to Mcgrady will go to him or Martin this year. I don't know if it will be strong enough to put him in the top two, though.

    Didn't Drexler call Rafer Alston a borderline All Star or something during a broadcast?

    We talking about right now or in general?

    He's better than Nash right now, but not young Nash.

    Not better than CP3 or Dwill (at the moment)

    Better than Westbrook and Curry at the moment.

    imo.

    Whew, I agree. Steep competition.

    He'll have to average at least 9-10 assists and have to become a shutdown defender (you don't have to say it, I know :/ ), or have a great year and have some of those guys get injured. He has the talent, but man good luck.
