    I don't agree with Curry, but he was a lock before the season started.

    Teague or Lawson over him.

    You could switch a few spots, but they got most of the 15 best.

    Dude is a Favorite of mine so I dunno if Im reachin but Like How is Jerel McNeal not a consensus 1st team AA?

    2 steals / game
    20 pts / game
    4 assists/ game
    4.5 boards / game
    40% from 3

    I dunno, The Only 2 I saw playin all yr on his level was Harden.

    hmm, curry and hansborogh on the 1st team, but then again they got all the buzz leading up to the season and the media loves these guys

    IMO, ty lawson and jerel mcneal were 1st team
    terrence williams shouldve been on either 2nd or 3rd

    G... this is the 2nd time you've OD'd witht his Maynor script. I mean we all know he has game and you want to be on record taht you rocked with himcause he's from a mid major and all but...

    CHILL!!!

    I can honor this list... although i would have like to see Gerald in the mix somewhere but he got off to such a slow start that I canunderstand him being left off.

    Perhaps you meant to replace Ty Lawson (2nd team) w/ Steph Curry?

    And no Toney Douglas?

    Shafting TD is worse than shafting T-Dub.
