Odom and Blake Griffin Battle it Out for Final All Star Spot


Can go either way:

Lamarcus Aldridge, forward, Trailblazers: He has become the go to guy for Portland since Brandon Roy went down to injury and has kept the team afloat in the West playoff race. That fact combined with his rise in scoring production should be enough to get him on the squad most years; not this year however as L.A.’s numbers are significantly lower than the other forward’s production in the West vying for a spot. This year Lamarcus is just out shined by the other forwards in the West to warrant an All Star bid. I say he is OUT.

Kevin Love, forward, Timberwolves: What K-Love has done this year is staggering. He has had three 30/20 (points/rebounds) games with one of those being a hard to fathom 30/30 game which the league hasn’t seen since Moses Malone in 1982. He has a league high 42 double/doubles and is averaging the most rebounds per game since Ben Wallace averaged 15 in 2002-2003. Kevin Love has developed an outside game to supplement his scoring around the hoop. Love is shooting an efficient 44 percent from 3 point land which ranks 7th in the NBA. While it will be hard for the West coaches to ignore the Wolves putrid 11-36 record, this is the year that the exception to the rule will have to be made. Love is IN.
