Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love may have beaten out a Northwest Division counterpart, in LaMarcus Aldridge for the All-Star game, but LA has edged him out as a member of the All-NBA Team(s).
There was of course a lot of controversy after Commissioner David Stern chose the Wolves’ Kevin Love over LaMarcus Aldridge for Yao Ming’s All-Star injury replacement. A lot of people were upset, the argument being: LA is actually playing for and practically carrying a winning team, whereas Kevin Love had incredible numbers playing for, what would eventually be: the worst team in the NBA (record-wise). Zach Randolph was also looked over as he was putting up his usual and impressive 20-10 numbers for the Memphis Grizzlies (who, if you’re watching the Playoffs are doing simply: AMAZING, lead by?…Z-BO!).
Aldridge & Randolph have exacted their revenge, though I highly doubt that either one sees it that way, they’re just playing the game in search of a ring.
Both LA & Z-Bo are members of the 3rd All-NBA Team. The teams stack up as follows…
FIRST TEAM: Derrick Rose (CHI), Kobe Bryant (LAL), LeBron James (MIA), Kevin Durant (OKC), Dwight Howard (ORL)
SECOND TEAM: Russell Westbrook (OKC), Dwayne Wade (MIA), Dirk Nowitzki (DAL), Amar’e Stoudemire (NYK), Pau Gasol (LAL)
THIRD TEAM: Chris Paul (NOH), Manu Ginobli (SAS), LaMarcus Aldridge (POR), Zach Randolph (MEM), Al Horford (ATL)
