hmm

PF- Kevin Love C- Roy Hibbert SF- Kevin Durant SG- Dwyane Wade PG- Derrick Rose

I wish I could put on more Pacer players on here but they aren't as consistent as others..

I think after watching tonight's ECF Game 6, I'm going to have to change my SF selection to Lebron James... he just has a knack at putting up historic/legendary performances.

PG - Derrick Rose (Chi-town Love!!)

SG - Kobe Bryant (Never count out a 5 time champion like Kobe)

SF - Kevin Durant (He's a consistent closer unlike Lebron)

PF - Kevin Love (Amazing numbers. Very consistent on the boards and developing an outside game)

C - Dwight Howard (Who's really going to go 1v1 against this guy in the paint?)

Lebron James, Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul. I put more weight on the first 3 because I think they are really good defenders.

PS right now King James has single handedly destroyed the celtics game 6 with 45 points 19-26 shooting.

Yeah, I just couldn't believe what he did in the first half... insane...

I would pick Lebron James as my SF, but when its really crunch time he has not shown me he can close games when he needs to. Sure he can put up amazing games like this, but if you watch his games as a whole, most of his games you feel like his points don't matter. Unlike Kevin Durant, who whenever the game is on the line, he lets you know that you better stop him if you want to win the game.

Plus Lebron just looks like an upset man child right now. lol

PG-Deron Williams -best passer in the league when he has someone to pass to

SG- Lebron -I know he's a forward but he can play 2 fine and he's the best player in the league (even if you won't admit it)

SF- Kevin Durant- cold-blooded assassin, a complete team guy

PF-Kevin Love- intangibles guy, I woudn't need scoring at this position but he can still give it

C- Tim Duncan- Can show all the rest of these guys how to win, best team-defending big in the league even though he is like a billion years old

I like this :). I was debating what to do with the SG position, I guess I can live with what you suggested, heh.

@TinoXtreme: Yeah man I'm a Lebron fan so I don't know what you want me to say. I put more weight on playing hard on both ends of the court for a full 48 minutes more important than being 'clutch'. I don't think players should be celebrated for making some risky buzzer beater shot. I think they should try harder next time so losing won't be a possibility.

I can understand that. I just hope for his sake if they make it to the finals again, that he doesn't fade away into the background like he did against Dallas last year. Because you have to agree, that was an utter disappointment.
