The NBA All-Star reserves are set, and to no one’s surprise, not everyone agrees with the selections.
In the East, Jaylen Brown, James Harden, Zach LaVine, Julius Randle, Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum and Nikola Vucevic made the cut, while in the West, the roster was rounded out by Anthony Davis, Paul George, Rudy Gobert, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Chris Paul, and Zion Williamson.
As always, plenty of deserving players were left off the list, and some in the reserves had a good argument for being bumped up to a starting spot. LeBron James found at least one player who fit each description in the list of nominations and snubs.
Devin Booker’s omission was particularly galling to a number of NBA players. Booker is 16th in the league in scoring, averaging 24.7 points per game and leading the Suns to a 20-10 record, good for third in the Western Conference.
Booker’s next chance to show that his omission was a mistake will be Wednesday against the Hornets at home.
