Nerlens Noel-PHI9.91.78.115.0530.8
Jusuf Nurkic-DEN6.70.86.114.8516.8

The first four are no-brainers to me, and my fifth selection is a bit of a wild card. Jusuf Nurkic might not have the best numbers of any of the players on this list, but he only plays 16 minutes a night. If you compare his stat line per 36 minutes he would average 14 points 9 rebounds and 2.2 blocks each contest. With those numbers he deserves to make the team.

Agree or disagree? Let me know how you feel in the comments below…..
