Manu Ginobili Got Left Off the All Star Team

Sorry, I don't have the energy to do this injustice justice. Here's what Henry Abbott of True Hoop had to say:

Manu Ginobili is a superstar. He just happens to play shorter minutes, have a smaller scoring average, than the likes of Allen Iverson. Tony Parker was the MVP of the Finals last year, but in the guts of crunch time, Ginobili was the guy with the daggers at both ends of the floor. There's really not anything he can't do -- he is an excellent three-point shooter, he drives to the hole as splendidly as anyone, and he plays killer D. If we're picking teams, All-Star teams, pick-up teams, or whatever, I'll take Ginobili, you take Iverson, and we'll see who wins.

(Iverson was voted in.)

Manu's the only player in the top 10 in PER not to make the squad. Makes you question your faith in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, doesn't it?
