All-Star Snubs Would Make One Sick All-Star Team

It's that time of year. Yes, it's trade deadline time... But it's also that time when everyone is up in arms about All-Star snubs. Who didn't get selected who should have? As usual, there are a number of controversial decisions, and names left out of the Midseason festivities. But one look at this year's All-Snub team and you can do a double-take, wondering if it would make a pretty serious All-Star team.

The names of those who didn't make the All-Star Teams:


  • James Harden
  • Trae Young
  • Jalen Brunson
  • De'Aaron Fox
  • Anthony Davis
  • Pascal Siakam
  • Jimmy Butler
  • Anthony Edwards
And there are probably more who could make a case. 

By comparison, these are the reserves that were named:

  • Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers
  • DeMar DeRozan, Chicago Bulls
  • Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics
  • Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat
  • Jrue Holiday, Milwaukee Bucks
  • Julius Randle, New York Knicks
  • Tyrese Haliburton, Indiana Pacers

  • Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies
  • Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers
  • Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers
  • Lauri Markkanen, Utah Jazz
  • Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies 

Yes, it's hard to make an argument as to who should have been left off in favor of one of the snubs. Perhaps we should just enjoy the fact that there's that much talent in the game today that these decisions are going to be tough every year.
