The NBA officially announced the reserves for the 2016 All-Star game, which will be played at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Sunday, February 14th. The starters for both conferences were announced last week, with Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard voted to tip off the exhibition in the West and LeBron James, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Kyle Lowry slated to represent the East.
Here’s the list of the 2016 NBA All-Star game reserves:
- Chris Bosh (F) — Heat
- Jimmy Butler (G/F) — Bulls
- DeMar DeRozan (G) — Raptors
- Andre Drummond (C) — Pistons
- Paul Millsap (F) — Hawks
- Isaiah Thomas (G) — Celtics
- John Wall (G) — Wizards
- LaMarcus Aldridge (F) — Spurs
- DeMarcus Cousins (C) — Kings
- Anthony Davis (F) — Pelicans
- Draymond Green (F) — Warriors
- James Harden (G) — Rockets
- Chris Paul (G) — Clippers
- Klay Thompson (G) — Warriors
While the All-Star game is merely an exhibition for the fans, it is also a form of validation for many players to be named to the squad for their respective conferences. As is the case with any All-Star game roster, a number of deserving players were omitted. That segues into the topic/question that I’m posing today: Who was the biggest All-Star snub this season?
Take to the comments section to voice your opinion on whom you believe should have made the cut. But don’t just give us a name; if there’s someone you feel who should be added, that also means another player needs to be removed to accommodate the addition. Tell us who you feel that should be. We look forward to what you have to say.
