Community Shootaround: Rising Stars Snubs

The NBA will announce the full rosters for 2017’s All-Star Game this Thursday, but in the meantime, the league has revealed which players will participate in the weekend’s Rising Stars Challenge. This year’s 20 participants were confirmed by the NBA today in a press release.

Here are 2017’s Rising Stars rosters:

U.S. Team:

World Team:

Some of this year’s choices are no-brainers — players like Embiid, Porzingis, and Towns have made strong cases to play in the All-Star Game itself. However, some of the picks are up for debate — Chriss, Ingram, and Exum are among the players whose contributions this season have been modest.

The rosters for the Rising Stars Challenge won’t necessarily inspire the same sort of passion and fervor that the All-Star starters and reserves will. But we’re still curious to know what you think of this year’s picks. Are there any players on these rosters that you think should be replaced? Any guys that should be participating in this game that you’re surprised not to see on either list above?

  2. Jacob Resnick

    Hernangomez and Kuzminskas have warranted looks for the World team, IMO.

    • You’re so right they should have been invited but kuz could replace dante but who does Willy replace .. but those two were the biggest snubs .. I also think it’s 10 rookies and 10 sophomores who are eligible

    • He’s been injured for a while. And is still gonna be out for a little while longer. While it’s not necessarily fair, it makes sense.

  5. Hernangomez and Kuzminskas are two rookies not playing for the International team I would love to see. Tt would’ve also been cool to see Patrick McCaw play for the U.S. Team, but I get that he hasn’t played enough to justify a spot.

    • Jahlil Okafor over jaylon brown does not make sense but they can only choose 10 rookies and 10 sophomores
