I really think this is ridiculous and k*lls the integrity of the team. Embiid has only been a center in his career. I feel like its a weak cop out to put him and Jokic first team simply because you cant decide who's better. Next we'll have Co-Mvps. Bill and Wilt never got to share the honor, now we changing the rules.

Si...

1st team is solid...

2nd team...Curry shouldn't be on that second team, he should be in the third tier with the injury and the long a*s slump he was in.

I wouldn't have Curry there simply off the fact him and Ja both point guards. Why is it so hard to pick the best player at each position

They giving out second place awards within the team

sh*t crazy, now we got 3 big men on the first team

Put Giannis at power forward, and you HAVE to pick between Jokic and Embiid at center. Simple

Having a forward worst than Embiid on the first team wouldn’t make sense and would cheapen the honor

Wilt Chamberlain got 1st team 2 of those years as center with Bob Pettit as PF

And they voted Dolph Schayes and Bob Pettit as center and PF for the other one.

Giannis could be considered a SF since the game is now “positional less”.




Which “og” SF’s should have made first team over any of those 3?

Players should register for one position and still play different positions…I think that eliminates these problems

If Tatum was the “best” SF his season
isn’t more deserving of 1st team honors than any of those 3 centers/PF’s.

And if I had to put another pg, Trae Young would get the nod...he had a way better year than Curry.

Without Jokic, Denver may be the worst team.....Jokic def over Luka who turned it on in the second half of the season after starting the yr not in shape...

Jokic carried Denver all thru and his yr may even be better than last yr when he won MVP....

If they truly deserved it, they would get honors at the position they play. We cant give out consolation prizes.

Tatum is the best small forward this year.

Giannis is the best power forward this year.

Embiid or Jokic the best center this year. 1 has to get left off, o well, we cant show sympathy and put em at a position they never played.

Well it doesn’t state SF / PF /PG/SG

Those 2 FORWARDS had better seasons than Tatum this year.

So many seasons they ain’t even had a legit center on the first team. Would be a bunch of scoring points and wing players, even the PF that would be considered a “big”
