Dane Carbaugh and myself discuss those situations, but we spend most of our time on the All-Star ballot and who should be voted as starters. If Kyrie Irving is one starter in the East backcourt, who should be at the other spot? DeMar DeRozan? Isaiah Thomas? And the frontcourts of both conferences are deep — quality players are going to be snubbed even after the coaches round out the rosters.
(Note, this was recorded on Wednesday afternoon with the intention of being up earlier, but technical difficulties got in the way. Things like Rose playing against the Sixers are referenced as having yet to happen, however the information and discussion topics would be the same now or then.)
