Was this Scott Brooks' All-Star ballot?
Fans have had their say concerning next month’s NBA All-Star Game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Top vote-getters at each position were announced as starters last week.
Now it’s time from NBA head coaches to select the reserves. The announcement will come around 6:15-6:30 p.m. on Thursday during TNT’s pregame show.
Asked Wednesday if he wanted to share his ballot, Thunder coach Scott Brooks politely refused. “No, too many guys would be against me,” Brooks said with a smile.
Coaches’ ballots were due at 2 p.m. Tuesday. A former point guard himself, Brooks would admit only the following: “I like guards. There are a lot of good guards having great years. I see a game through a guard’s eyes. There’s no doubt.”
As for his criteria, Brooks said, “It was a combination — stats, how their team is doing, feel, attitude, team guys. I’m not going to pick a guy who just worries about himself or statistics, players who are (thinking) agenda, not team.”
Coaches voted for seven players within their own conference — two guards, two forwards, one center and two wildcards — and they could not vote for their own players.
