Park: There Has Never Been Anyone Like Draymond Green

Draymond Green

When you think of all the great players the league has seen, it’s inevitable that comparisons arise sooner or later. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James were and forever will be compared to Michael Jordan.

AldridgeSpurs1

This week, while NBA coaches pick the All-Star reserves, the NBA will pick the All-Star coaches. Neither task is as easy. David Blatt’s dismissal as coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers has added a bizarre twist to next month’s All-Star Game in Toronto. The Cavs have the best record in the Eastern Conference, which means their staff was on track to coach the East All-Stars.

All-Star dilemma: The West Frontcourt

Draymond

Every year, All-Star debate centers around a team or player. Player X was snubbed. Team Y needs more All-Stars because of their record. We could see a convergence of debate in the Western Conference frontcourt this season.
