Default Demarcus Cousins All-Star? Back to Back 30 Point Games

Cousins got paid big over the off-season and is producing big time. You will rarely see any PF/C go for 30+ points let alone do it in on a back to back with no rest. He's averaging 23.5ppg and 10 rebounds. Could be the year he makes it the all-star team. Kings are a joke of the team, I know that and wouldn't argue against it. Just curious what you guys think about Cousins all-star chances?

If he keeps his head on straight he is a great player and could be a All-Star no problem

Yes he's a beast. If he gets his head on striaght he could be the best big man in the leauge his offensive game is 10x better than Howard's.

Nah, that title will belong to Anthony Davis pretty soon.

i think voting is split into front court and back court.. no more specific positions

so there will be 7 front court positions available

durant, griffin, duncan, love, howard are probably in for sure

then there is gasol, gasol, randolph, lee, aldridge, asik, ibaka, nowitzki, parsons, davis, etc

a lot of competition and the kings record will come into play too

I don't think Cousins will make the All-Star team this year. The Kings are too bad and there are more deserving choices for backup PF/C.

even with Lopez the blazers defense still sucks so I wouldn't judge future performance on his last two games. his two games prior to these were terrible.

Everyone keeps on saying "if he gets his head on straight". The guy is putting up the numbers. He's playing amazing. I don't understand all this "if he gets his head on straight" talk. I understand if he was playing badly but he's not.

He played 18 mins and 29 mins in those two games. Definitely can't judge him off those games if he wasn't even on the court.

I'm a Rockets fan, but there is a 0% chance that Asik or Parsons makes the AS team.

According to HoopsStats efficiency rating, Demarcus Cousins is the 2nd best Center in the NBA right now behind only Horford. He is currently ranked #1 in points per game amongst centers.

Davis will be in. Cousins if he keeps these numbers up and his team sucks should still be an all-star.

Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Randolph, Ibaka, Asik? Those guys have zero chance of making the all star game. Cousins putting up 10 times better numbers.

Last year, the selection process for the All-Star Game changed to 2 guards and 3 forwards, thus meaning there's no need for a center.

That said, even if we're looking strictly at PF/C types, I'd choose the following (in this order):

- Tim Duncan
- Kevin Love
- Blake Griffin
- Dwight Howard
- Anthony Davis
- LaMarcus Aldridge

I'd also probably take Marc Gasol over DeMarcus Cousins.

It's not all about statistics; you have to take into consideration team success and intangibles that lead to that success. What has Cousins achieved? Why does he deserve to be selected ahead of the players listed above?

What has Lamarcus Aldridge and Anthony Davis achieved?

I understand team success being factor when the stats are close but the stats are nowhere near close between TD and Demarcus. Duncan is not a better player than Demarcus Cousins right now. That would be just complete BS if he makes it and Cousins doesn't. Duncan will never drop back to back 30 point games the entire season. What Duncan does in entire games, Cousins does in just 1 half.

Players shouldn't be penalized for being on teams with bad GM's who don't put talent around them.

The All-Star game is about putting the best players in the NBA on the court for one night. It's not about putting the best players from only the best teams in the NBA. If that was the case, then every player would be from Miami, OKC, SA and Indiana.

And that is where we strongly disagree.

And yet it was only 6 months ago that Tim Duncan was dropping 30 points to go with 17 boards in a game against the Heat in the NBA Finals.

The all star game is a popularity contest. Starting line up is by fan ballot. Reserves are voted in by coaches. That's how some of these players can sneak in. I'm not saying he won't be an all star, I just said there was a lot of competition and Cousins does not have the best reputation around the league.

Lamarcus Aldrige is not a center he's a PF.

Cousins is somewhat underrated but will only get better, all star selection sooner or later is to be expected .

I Could not stand him last year, watching him pout and throw 13 year old tantrums. He should be on one year all star probation if you ask me, lol, jk but not really

Cousins needs to be on a diff team. Kid has got monster talent, but no brains and a poor attitude. Unfortunately, he is in no-mans land in SacOtomatoe. Saying all that, he could end up being the best big man in the league.

This isn't MLB. No chance he makes the all star team.
