I was quite annoyed at Deandre as well. Towns or Whiteside should've been there. Jordan sucks balls.

You could make a case for Towns or Whiteside, but as you guys shriek at me every single year, the All-NBA team gives more weight to guys on winning teams.

Y'all are also underestimating how valuable Jordan is. Whiteside is a better rim protector, but DAJ's a much better switch defender on the perimeter and I think on balance that makes him more valuable on balance as a defensive player. He's also not a dumbass who tries to do too much on offense.

Only because he's the worst free throw shooter ever.

I hate to invoke Shaq, because obviously Jordan is nowhere near the player he was, but FT% is not the be all end all. True, Whiteside is setting the world on fire with his 61% free throw rate, but he's also named after the infidel prophet's grandson. Therefore, if you hate DeAndre Jordan you hate America.

I watch basketball and it annoys me when people say that good players aren't good. The Clippers have won 2 out of every 3 games over the past 5 years despite one of Paul/Griffin always being injured, and it's not because of JJ Reddick. Jordan is arguably the best defensive player in the league, and certainly no worse than 3rd, at the most critical defensive position. I think the fact that people are annoyed by the Clippers' on-court behavior and DeAndre's childish behavior during the whole Dallas affair, and that affects their perception of how good he is at basketball.

Fair enough but I'd argue the only reason he gets all these props in the first place is because he plays on that high visibility (dysfunctional) team.

Except if they play in Boston, then they're overrated and John Wall is better and President Stevens caused the crack epidemic in 1980s Washington DC.

This is true, but IMO he deserves them.

I never said Isiah Thomas is overrated. But please, go ahead and create whatever strawman is necessary to brag about your round 2 chip.
