Pick one and give a reason why.
Who will make their first All-Star game?
Greg Oden, Brook Lopez, Roy Hibbert
Blake Griffin, Michael Beasley, Lamarcus Aldridge
Rudy Gay, Anthony Randolph, Thaddus Young
Eric Gordon, OJ Mayo, James Harden
Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo, Tyreke Evans
lopez because hes better then both
beasley because hes more talented and because blake plays for the clippers and they are cursed..lol..maybe blake when he leaves the clippers
rudy gay because hes better
mayo because i think he better of the three
id say rondo because of what hes capable of and his team will be winning
Greg Oden (Only because this year if he can put it together the West is fairly weak at the C Position. Brook has to go up against Shaq and Dwight, Fan-Favorites, plus he's on a bad team)
LaMarcus Aldridge (Seriously, dude has more Potent. to me then Griffin. He's on the Verge of touching it soon)
Rudy Gay (Been in the League longest, deserves it, but still has to earn it)
Mayo (Gordon is a close second though)
Rajon Rondo (Most expected him to make it last year and for sure this year, Westbrook still has to compete with CP3, Billups, D-Will, Tony Parker, Miller, Brooks, Nash, Kidd)
Ben or Eric both are beasts
Can I change my mind?!? haha, B. Lopez is beasting right now. :D
Oden becaue hibbert hasnt showed me anything and i think lopez just a regular center nets just suck thats why his stats are good
Beasley is a beast he just need to get his head in the game once he do that sky is the limit
Rudy Gay is a very good player but everytime he make huge strides in his game grizzlies make stupid descions like adding Zach Randolph and A.I. all of them want the ball to much.
I like westbrook but right now rondo game is better and rondo is in the eastern conference so he just competes with devin harris and rose. Westbrook has chris paul and d-will to worry about.
if a guy puts up stats on a wek team then they arent that good?..well we can scratch off al jefferson from making it. and devin harris..wait devin made it last year ..(i guess the nba doesnt look at it as youre average if you put up good stats on a bad team ).as well as any okc thunder,kings,and the other teams whos wont have real good records.....
Greg Oden -- Hibbert will never be an All-Star, Lopez may reach that level down the road. But Oden has the benefit of a very weak center position in the West and he should average 16 and 10 this year, provided he can stay out of foul trouble for the most part.
Blake Griffin -- Aldridge may have peaked; Beasley may never peak. Griffin, on the other hand, is a sure-fire All-Star once he gets the minutes and health.
Anthony Randolph -- Gay's career may be derailed by playing with a teammate as selfish as Mayo. Young could potentially compete, but Randolph's numbers will be better as a result of the Warrior's system.
Eric Gordon -- Gordon's just the best of those players. Mayo is too selfish and not a true point guard or shooting guard. Harden will be a very solid player for years to come, but I'm not convinced he will be an All-Star.
Rajon Rondo -- This question is silly.
Greg Oden - He will start to become more consistent and the West is lacking at competition for the All-Star Centers.
LaMarcus Aldridge - As much as i like Griffin (being a fan of Clippers) Aldridge has the opportunity as he puts up good numbers on a winning team much the same as David West did when he got his first All-Star selection.
Rudy Gay - Young and Randolph are 2-3years off. Rudy really only needs a change of team i can see him going into free agency at the end of the year and becoming the go-to on another team and making his way into All-Star status.
Eric Gordon - Firstly because he is my favorite player, but also because he is very efficient and he will get more looks as he gets more time in the league this year. Mayo and Harden are on teams that are stacked like Gordon but unlike Gordon they are not as efficient to put up the same kind of numbers.
Rondo - Starting PG on a Championship contending team.
on your list the first to be an allstar will be Greg Oden or Rajon Rondo but only Rondo has a legit chance to make it this year
Brook Lopez he is doing his thing already last year 13 points 8 rebounds I think both numbers increase and he establishes himself as a top center and he makes the allstar team first.
Lamarcus Aldridge He is cnsistently getting better 18ppg and 7.5 rebounds he puts up the numbers he will make it first.
Rudy Gay he looks like an allstar he can score on anyone and he rebounds the ball well for his position.
OJ Mayo he averaged 20 ppg as a rookie it will continue to increase and he has the game of an allstar
Russell Westbrook he is a triple double waiting to happen he will put up the numbers and be an allstar.
Westbrook/Rondo will both make it this year.
Oden - Lopez is the best center of this group as of right now, but he plays on a bad team in the East. Dwight Howard has the starting center locked down for the rest of his career, which means Lopez would have to be voted in as a reserve. I don't see that happening for a couple of years. Hibbert will be a good player, but I don't see all-star talent. Oden plays in the West where the center position is weak this year. I think he'll average a double double and three blocks, plus he'll be on a 50+ win team. He'll be in consideration this season as a starter AND a reserve.
Aldridge - I think Griffin is the best player out of this group. He already rebounds and plays better defense than Aldridge and Beasley. They have more complete offensive games than him, but he could still score just as many points. However, I'm going with Aldridge here because I think he'll have a breakout season, plus the Blazers will win 50+ games. He will be in consideration this season as a reserve.
Gay - During the summer, Gay looked like he was ready to breakout. I think he'll be the all-star first of this group. Young is a very good player and plays on the best team of this group, but he's still a couple of years away. Randolph probably has the most potential out of the group, but he's a few years away.
Gordon - Each of these players play for non-playoff/up and coming teams, but I think Gordon is the best player out of this group and he'll be the first to make it. His main competition is Mayo. I think Harden will be an all around solid player, but I don't see him as an all-star talent at this point.
Rondo - This is the easiest question. Rondo could be an all-star this season. I have no doubts Westbrook will get there eventually, BUT he has stiff competition in the West. Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Tony Parker, Chauncey Billups and Steve Nash. Tyreke won't be an all-star for a long time.
Oden - With Yao out, this position is up for grabs. (Big Al, Bynum, Oden)
Aldridge - True PF and has the total package at that position. Beasley's game is more of a SF then PF. Blake is going to be an upgraded version of Kenyon Martin.
Gay - No contest here.
Gordon - Is on the peak to shine in the game right now. He's one of the Clip's main player.
Rondo - The west has too many star PGs. CP3, D-will, Billups, Nash, Parker the list goes on and on in the west for this position.
Don't forget about NeNe from Denver. He'll have an opportunity too.
Aldridge is a very good player, but he doesn't rebound nor does he block shots. I think he'll make it first, but I wouldn't call him the total package. I think Griffin will be the total package. I see him being a more athletic Karl Malone, not an upgraded Kenyon Martin.
Greg Oden - This Year
Aldrige, Mostly because hes the longest that has played,
B-Easy is being inconsistent and Griffin is Injured
Rudy Gay, when Randolph gets playing time then hell be an all-star
Russell Westbrook - Could be this season
He and Rondo are triple double threats, great rebounders,passers and Athletic
