CENTER: Greg Monroe. Detroit’s Monrobocop has been the conference’s second best center, no matter how bad the Pistons have looked. He’s averaging 16 points and almost 10 rebounds a game on 51 percent shooting while picking up more assists than turnovers. He edges Roy Hibbert, who plays for a much better team. But you can’t pick your teammates, unless you’re LeBron James or Stephen Jackson.
Earlier in the season, Patrick made the case that Monroe should be an All-Star. I’m not so sure. Since Patrick’s post, Monroe has tailed off a little and Joakim Noah has improved. It could come down to the wire.
Regardless, I doubt Monroe will make the All-Star Game. Still, it’s a credit to him that he’s in the discussion of who deserves to make the All-Star Game.
