The NBA has never been so talented. The league is so loaded with great players this season that there could literally be a third All-Star team with a roster of 15 players. Don’t believe me? To illustrate this point, this slideshow will be naming 15 All-Star-caliber players who will probably end up being All-Star snubs this season. Before we get to the snubs, however, here are the 25 players who will likely be heading to Atlanta on March 7th for the All-Star Game:
Eastern Conference: Joel Embiid, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bradley Beal, James Harden, Jayson Tatum, Khris Middleton, Bam Adebayo, Jaylen Brown, Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, and Julius Randle
Western Conference: LeBron James, Nikola Jokic, Kawhi Leonard, Steph Curry, Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Anthony Davis (injured), Paul George, Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Zion Williamson (Davis’ injury replacement)
Note: CJ McCollum, Christian Wood, and Jimmy Butler would all either be All-Stars or All-Star snubs, but none have not played enough games to qualify due to injuries and coronavirus-related absences and therefore won’t appear in this slideshow.
Without further ado, here are the All-Star Snubs:
