DJ's NBA Midseason Awards: Western Conference All-Stars

Dustin JohnsonCorrespondent IJanuary 19, 2009

Continuing my midseason awards I give you my Western Conference All-Star team. My picks are based solely on production, leadership, and a players value to their team. I won't go on and on about these guys. I'll just let their stat lines speak for them. So without further ado lets turn out the lights and begin the introduction of your West starting five.

PG: Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets

20.8 ppg, 11.1 apg, 4.6 rpg, and 2.8 spg. I'll say this about CP3 he is a ball hawk. John Stockton you better watch out cause your all-time steals leader spot is gonna be Chris'.

SG: Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers

27.2 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 4.9 apg, 1.3 spg. Kobe continues to show he can be a great scoring as well as distributor, and he's always a cold blooded killer when the games on the line.

SF: Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

24.1 ppg, 6.2 rbg, 2.5 apg, and 1.2 spg. Kevin Durant is sole reason the Thunder won't go down as the worst team in NBA history.

PF: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks

26.0 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 2.6 apg, and 91 percent free throw shooting. Dirk is a nasty shooter who plays with some serious intensity.

C: Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs

20.3 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 3.6 apg, and 1.9 bpg. TD is a consistent threat down low against any team. There's a reason they call him the big fundamental.

And now here's the rest of the team in no particular order. The Bench will consist of:

Chauncey Billups, Denver Nuggets: 19.0 ppg, 5.6 apg, 2.9 rpg, and 1.4 spg.

Brandon Roy, Portland Trailblazers: 22.6 ppg, 5.2 apg, 4.8 rpg, and 1.1 spg.

Al Jefferson, Minnesota Timberwolves: 22.2 ppg, 10.5 rpg, and 1.7 bpg.

Amare Stoudamire, Phoenix Suns:21.8 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.1 spg, and 1.1 bpg.

Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets: 21.1 ppg, 7.3 rpg, and 3.6 apg.

Paul Millsap, Utah Jazz: As a Starter - 17.4 ppg, 11.1 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.4 spg, 1.1 bpg.

Yao Ming, Houston Rockets: 19.6 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 1.8 apg, and 1.7 bpg.

I put Millsap's number as a starter to show my belief why he should be in. Oh, and Yao's in there to appease about six billion people.
