    With the starters being announced, I wanted to hear who everyone thought the reserves will be.

    Remember: 2 Guard spots, 3 Frontcourt spots, and 2 Wild-card (any position) spots

    '15 West Reserves:
    G - James Harden (HOU)
    G - Chris Paul (LAC)
    G - Damian Lilliard (POR)
    G - Russell Westbrook (OKC)
    FC - Kevin Durant (OKC)
    FC- DeMarcus Cousins (SAC)
    FC - LaMarcus Aldridge (POR)


    '15 East Reserves:
    G - Jimmy Butler (CHI)
    G - Jeff Teague (ATL)
    G - Kyrie Irving (CLE)
    G - Dwyane Wade (MIA)
    FC - Chris Bosh (MIA)
    FC - Al Horford (ATL)
    FC - Nikola Vucevic (ORL)

    For the West, I think that's the deserving lineup, although Howard may slip in due to Aldridge's injury.

    For the East, as nice as Vucevic has been, I'd really prefer to see both Horford and Millsap make the team and I hope it happens.

    (edited because my first reaction was r****ded and named two of the current starters as better reserve candidates)

    Hopefully Kobe sits out and Harden takes his starting spot giving Klay or Monta the reserve spot.

    Kobe has to sit out. His rotator cuff is torn.

    I think they will leave westbrook or durant off, just not sure which one it will be be. My gut is that it will be Westbrook. Aldridge is hurt.

    I think:
    Lillard
    Conley
    Harden
    Thompson (Bryant Replacement)
    Dirk
    Durant
    Cousins

    even though obviously an all star, KD should not make the team this year. he has missed too many games.

    Zach Randolph > Both the Gasol's.
    Well, not Pau in his LA prime.

    Remember when Memphis was struggling? They lost 7 of 10 as soon as Randolph went out. 7-1 since he came back, all of them double doubles for ZR. Definitely their MVP.

    How is Klay Thompson not on your list? Dude is balling and Warriors are the best team in the league.

    Didn't realize Kobe was going to be out the rest of the year
    Klay is my injury replacement for him.

    If LMA is out, I'd put in Dirk.
