; Marc Gasol, Memphis, 52; Derrick Rose, Chicago, 44; Josh

Gortat, Phoenix, 2; Paul Millsap, Utah, 2; Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City, 2;
David Lee, Golden State, 1; and DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento, 1.



There were people who believed that Luis Scola and David Lee were among the 6 best forwards in the league!?!?!    Joe Johnson's 16 votes (so, ahead of Wade and Rondo) are confusing.   Monta Ellis 2 votes - um, OK. 

Of 42 players receiving votes, only 5 played on teams with losing records (Love, Aldridge, Ellis, Lee Cousins).

Love got the 8th most voting points (behind first teamers plus Bynum and Parker), Aldridge was 16th, Ellis 35th, Lee 41st, Cousins 42nd).
