Yeah this season but last season West was deserving so if it was contested it shouldn't have been. He was playing his a** off last season and his team was #1 in the West at the time. It's almost understandable for the #1 teams in both the East and West to have more than 1 player representing because it's usually more than 1 player on that team that's making things happen.
I'm not saying West didn't deserve it last year, I'm saying it was already tight last year, so contrast that to this year where he's not having as good of a season while Al is having a better one, and you can see my point. Close last year, but he gets the nod. Plays worse this year, while Al is clearly having the better season, and he still gets it.
