How is Russ Not A NBA ASG Starter?
Look, I haven’t watched the NBA since the Bulls dynasty and MJ retired a second time outside of the dunk contest and 3 point contest. And lets be honest, anymore the dunk contest lasts just about as long as the home run derby. Besides, no one is going to top what Vince Carter did in 2000. You got a bunch of soft cocks playing run and gun with no defense. Definitely not my style of hoops. But how in the hell is Russ Westbrook not starting the All Star Game this year? Apparently hooknose commissioner Adam Silver has been spending too much time at synagogue and set up some formula of Fan Rank/Player Rank/Media Rank to determine who starts the All Star Game. And while Westbrook ranked 1 in Player Rank and Media rank, he was tied among the consensus rank with Steph Curry and Beard with the tie breaker going to Fan Vote where Russ finished 3rd. When was the last time a guy averaging a triple double wasn’t starting an All Star Game?
Russ is averaging 30.6 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 10.4 RPG, 1.5 SPG AND IS NOT STARTING THE ALL STAR GAME. Maybe this means that Russ will start playing like he has a chip on his shoulder instead of his usual happy go lucky self? I guess he’ll have to go all Teen Wolf on the NBA’s ass now. If you need me I’ll be playing my Atomic Dove phone game.
