NBA 2016-2017

I just have started watching pro basketball again with some regularity over the last five or six years. I have a couple of teams that I enjoy following and a couple I enjoy rooting against.

I was watching the picks for the All Star game and was totally flabbergasted that Russell Westbrook was not picked as a starter.

Seriously?

I know the fans get a chunk of the vote but am I supposed to believe that a guy averaging a triple-double for the season is not one of the best ten players in the league? I keep hearing the talking heads say it's nothing more than a popularity contest and I have to say that I agree with them.

I am so used to college basketball that it feels long but it's not as long as baseball or football.

Russell Westbrook being overlooked is a joke.

MVP? I know Durants injury has something to do with it, but if San Antonio goes into the playoffs as the 1 seed, my vote would be for Kawhi Leonard. They guy is a beast and about as complete of a player as there is in the league right now.

Kawhi is just ridiculous right now.

If things play out the way they are right now Houston will face OKC in the first round. That could be one of the best series in the entire playoffs.

Without Parker, San Antonio looks weak.

Of course, I don't think they or Houston will get past Golden State.

It was still a very entertaining game. Danny Green stepped up when they needed him to and Ginobili came up huge with that block.

I think the Spurs win in seven.

Wow, the Spurs handed it to Houston without Parker AND Leonard.

I didn't see that coming.

I wasn't surprised. Houston is pretty one dimensional.

I'm already sick of the finals and they haven't even started yet.

Apparently so was everyone else.

There was one thing I thought was pretty noteworthy about these finals. Cleveland got a solid beating and lost 4-1. But that one game they won was a record breaking offensive performance.
