NBA: Fear The Beard! James Harden Will Start All-Star Game In Place Of Kobe Bryant

IFWT_harden


With Kobe being voted to start the all star game, but out with injury, we knew someone had to take his place in the starting lineup. It was announced today that James Harden will start and that is exactly who it should be. That now means the starting five for the West will be Harden, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Kevin love and Blake Griffin. Out of the bench players for the squad, picking Harden to start just makes the most sense with what he has done this season. Can’t wait for the game on Sunday night, it should be full of highlight reel type plays.

NBA:(Video) Kenny Smith Thinks Kobe & T-Mac Have Amnesia When It Comes To Michael Jordan

IFWT_kenny_smith


Recently for those who don’t know, Kobe Bryant & Tracy McGrady both said the hardest player they had to face defensively was each other. Now, make no mistake, when McGrady was in his prime, being 6’9 and having a jumper and a handle, he was a very hard player to guard. Obviously we all know Kobe is very difficult to stop as well. Both the fact they both had lists and neither one of them had Jordan on it is odd. McGrady gets somewhat of a pass, because in his prime, Jordan was not the real MJ we all knew. But Kobe knows better! Kenny Smith said some funny things about this during an interview with TMZ. Hit the jump.

IFWT_Paul_george


Is Paul George ready to leave town already? If your a real basketball fan you already knew the boy could ball, but he became a household name across the country during the recent NBA playoffs. He went back and forth with Lebron James, holding his own, and probably had the best dunk of the playoffs when he posterized Birdman, aka Chris Anderson. George is part of next years free agent class which is full of superstar names. From the sounds of it, he might be ready to become an even bigger star somewhere else. Hit the jump.
