Everyone now has heard about Chris
Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade teaming up down in Miami. Now Wade will
probably be the leader, James the star, but where does that leave Bosh? The
If the Heat want to win they must
learn to all be the playmaker and superstar. I think that if one player
averages ten more points then the other two stars then the Heat will not win
the championship. James and Wade need to average 20-25 points each while Bosh
needs to average 10-15 points per game and 5-10 rebounds.
The Celtics showed that one ball
hog that is a superstar cannot win it by himself. The Celtics beat the Heat, Cavs, Magic, and nearly the Lakers. Actually they beat, Wade, James, the Magic, and
nearly Kobe. The Magic’s superstar, Dwight Howard cannot hog the ball because
he plays in the post as a center. The Magic’s “potential ball hogs” were Jameer
Nelson, Matt Barnes, and Richard Lewis, all-stars but not superstars.
Why is Howard a first all-NBA team
player? His point guard. Howard is a good player but if his starting point
guard was not so good he would drop to the third all-NBA team.
A point guard can completely make a
big man better or worse. For example, Pau Gasol has been better in LA not
because he is a Laker but because of Derrek Fisher. Amar’e Stoudemire needed
Steve Nash to be a superstar.
As some of you know there was a big mistake in the NBA all-star voting, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo got left off the roster. Allen as of 1-31 is averaging 17.9 points per game, with 3.4 rebounds per game, and 2.8 assists per game. Rondo is averaging 11.1 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, and 8.1 assist per game. I can sorta understand Rondo being left off. I mean this year was his breakout year, he is still young so he could be elected to more, he is not that good of a shooter, and he is only 6’1 which is tall just not for a basketball player. Allen though is one of the best three point shooters ever if not the best. Allen though is sometimes the forgotten piece of the fabulous four, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Allen, and Rondo, because Garnett and Pierce made it in and get all of the awards. Rashard Lewis and Jamer Nelson, both play for the Orlando Magic, got in. Before I thought Allen and Rondo should have gotten in but I just looked at their stats and I think that Lewis some what deserved it while Nelson still shouldn’t have gotten in. What happens is the fans vote for who should be the starters then the coaches chose seven players to be their reserves. The coach this year for the East (the Celtic’s and Magic’s league) is Cleveland Cavilers coach Mike Brown. The Cavilers are rivals with the Celtics so he could have picked only Paul Pierce as a reserve to see Allen and Rondo get left off. That is unlikely because the only player going to the all-star game from the Cavilers is LeBron James, who was voted in as a starter. The West head coach coaches the Celtic’s arch rival the Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson. You might now him as that old guy that screams a lot. Well even though Allen and Rondo won’t be there Allen should be in the three point shout-out and Garnett is starting while Pierce is a reserve.
First- I have to go back to school tomorrow. 😦 I try to blog in the morning but I don’t think that will work out.
