  1. Yao over Duncan? Not only is Duncan more impactful, he’s played almost twice as many games.

  2. Manu over Barbosa? Talk about some serious bias…

  3. But enough of us, let’s rip on Jason’s picks. Haha.

  4. Timmy better show me tonight why he’s 1st Team over Yao, who had a leading 28 and 13 while T-Mac, who finished with 23, was sucking you-know-what, who I do not have on my 2nd Team. Did you know Yao averaged more PPG than T-Mac this season (25.0 to 24.6)?
    But man, it’s crazy to see how much Wade’s game has suffered since he came back. Bulls in 4!

  5. Let’s not get hasty. One game does not a series make.
