The All-Star break is looming and there is a clear picture of which players have been living up to their standards and which have not; which players have burst onto the NBA scene in surprise and which have flopped under the pressure.
At the end of each season, the NBA honors the best players by naming them to the All-NBA Teams. There are three teams: First Team, Second Team and Third Team.

Blake Griffin scored a season-high 43 points against the Heat on ESPN Wednesday night, grabbed 15 rebounds and dished 6 dimes during a dominating performance on the block and in the air. Jamal Crawford added 31 points for good measure and DeAndre Jordan had a bruising double-double (16 points and 16 rebounds). But the Heat matched LA’s athleticism lob-for-lob, and LeBron James continued to show why he should still be considered the best in the game. Read More »
I remember hearing this earlier this season while watching a Clippers-Timberwolves game on TV, as Kevin Love and Blake Griffin were locked in an old-school 1980s battle where neither guy could guard the other, both on pace for 40-plus points as they fiercely exchanged buckets.

The youth of the NBA today is better than ever. The infatuation with this year’s NBA Draft is prime evidence of that. These young guns are building blocks for teams to build around. Regardless of the position they play on the court, these young athletes have a remarkable amount of impact to their respective teams and to the league itself. Read More »
