This past week, the NBA’s second returns of All-Star voting were made public. To nobody’s surprise, with 258,193 tallies, Kyrie Irving was fourth in voting among Eastern Conference guards – well behind Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo and Deron Williams but comfortably ahead of Monta Ellis, Raymond Felton and Jrue Holiday.
Now that we are about a month into the NBA season, are you disappointed in the performance of a player or two on your favorite team? Take a number and get in line. There are dozens of players who are not coming close to meeting expectations this season. And when you factor in their salaries and how much they limit their team’s financial flexibility, it can be downright infuriating.
