Westbrook, Mitchell, Paul, Ingram, Gobert.

that was easy

Gobert and Paul are much more impactful. Ingram made it on the positional stipulation. Westbrook was questionable. Definitely over Mitchell though...

I’m pretty down on the franchise right now, but this thread, especially the OP, is a special kind of dissociation from reality.
Time will tell. I hope you're right. But i doubt it. Come back when hes starting his first allstar game in a Wolves jersey then talk about what/whos "special" round here.

Definitely over Mitchell? Dude is averaging 25/4/4 and his team is 10+ games better than the suns. Next.

I thought the same thing. But when i you look at each of them it’s difficult to argument book over any of them given their numbers and records. Even Ingram at 25/7/4 with 1 block and 1 steal per game and shooting 40% on threes with volume and pels the same or slightly better record wise.

and as much as Westbrook isn’t the machine he was, he’s 26/8/7 on a team that’s also 10+ games up in the suns.

Yeah there’s a lot of teams 10+ wins better than the Suns. We’re talking about individual players.

Mitchell has a defensive juggernaut defending the paint and he’s surrounded by elite shooters. Replace him with Book and that team is a title contender while the Suns with Mitchell are even more trash than we are now.

Is Book responsible for the fact that the Jazz are 10 games better? Who is the better player? I thought that was what the all-star game is about? Book’s comment is dead on. It is no longer about the best players.

Book is not responsible for team injuries or Ayton’s suspension—if that made any difference.

Book is better than Mitchell, by all the metrics except the identity and health of his teammates.

Westbrook has a great January but Booker has had a better SEASON. Why is that so hard to understand??

The numbers I pointed out aren’t January. That’s Westbrook’s season. Why is that hard to understand?


Also, the teams success has always been a factor in the all star game. For all of you to ignore that is to cloak yourself in willful ignorance and homerism.

Westbrook's efficiency is very low this year and I think Booker has outplayed him overall. That said, I'm not all that surprised that Westbrook got the spot, because he's a former MVP who still puts up gaudy numbers on a top team.

Exactly. This is the all star selection, not a team construction thing. I can understand why Westbrook was chosen over book but wouldn’t trade book for Westbrook.
