Unlikely NBA developments
 
Earl Clark and James White starting for their respective teams while Gasol and Stoudemire comes in from the bench.
I would have given a million to one odds of this scenario happening had it been proposed 2-4 years ago.


I can't find a more unlikely scenario unfolding right now in the NBA.

Ian Mahinmi (drafted by Spurs in 2005) won a championship with Dallas, is now a useful backup for Indiana averaging 16+ mpg, and for his career has played twice as many games as Greg Oden. When Oden was picked #1 in 2007, I would have never guessed his career would be so inferior to freaking Ian Mahinmi's (who is for the most part an injury-prone scrub).

Nah this is totally logical if you watch their performance.

It's unlikely only if this was their first season with the team, but it's not.

Speaking of James White, will he be in the dunk contest? I'm thinking he won't be well known enough to warrant being the favorite and hence could be worth putting some good money on.

Totally logical? James White was floating around in Russia and now he's starting and Stoudemire is not..

I remember when weeks leading up to the 2007 draft... Who were the Blazers going to take @ #1 ? That debate is so obsolete... Even with Oden not half as frequently injured as he's been, Durant is light years ahead of Oden.
