Who Was the Biggest NBA All-Star Snub?

On the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star team, Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett are the starters. The reserves are Jrue Holiday, Kyrie Irving, Chris Bosh, Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah, Paul George, and Luol Deng.

In NBA Western Conference, Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard are the starters. The reserves are Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, Tim Duncan, Zach Randolph, LaMarcus Aldridge, James Harden and David Lee.

Every professional league always has the hot debate of which star was left off the All-Star roster and which stars shouldn’t have been voted into the game. Here’s my biggest snubs left off the team:

Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors: Curry has dealt with some injuries, but is averaging 20.9 points per game, and 6.6 assists while shooting 43% from field and 45% from long range. Curry has led the Warriors to a 26 and 15 record, second best in the Pacific Division. His teammate, David Lee, may just be as deserving. Lee is averaging 19.6 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game.

Brook Lopez, C, Brooklyn Nets: Lopez is averaging 18.6 points and 7.4 assists per game, and shooting 52% from the floor. Simmons makes the note that Lopez is doing this by getting double-teamed, and Bosh is being wide open. Plus, the Nets are the 3-seed right now and that’s after a resurgence after they fired head coach Avery Johnson.
