Dejounte Murray, LaMelo Ball Headline Biggest All-Star Snubs


The 2022 NBA all-stars have been announced – but not everybody agrees on the selections.

Milwaukee Bucks’ star Khris Middleton – who’s averaging 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 5.2 assists on 44%/38%/88% shooting splits – was selected as an all-star.

Meanwhile Middleton’s teammate Jrue Holiday – who’s averaging 18.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.5 assists on 50%/39%/76% shooting splits while playing All-NBA caliber defense – was not selected as an all-star.

Boston Celtics’ star Jaylen Brown – who’s averaging 24.2 points and 6.6 rebounds on 46%/36%/79% shooting splits – had a case to be an all-star; but his team’s 28-25 record likely worked against carrying two players to the all-star game (Jayson Tatum was selected).

The Charlotte Hornets didn’t have any players selected to the all-star game despite being eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 28-24 record.

Many speculated that Hornets’ guard LaMelo Ball – who’s averaging 19.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 7.7 assists on 43%/36%/87% shooting splits – would make the all-star game.

In the Western Conference, Spurs’ guard Dejounte Murray was snubbed.

Murray is averaging 19.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, 9.1 assists, and 2.0 steals on 45%/32%/74% shooting splits.

Of course, the Spurs’ 19-34 record didn’t help his case.

Other players some believed were snubbed include: Cleveland Cavaliers’ big-man Jarrett Allen, Miami Heat’ wing Tyler Herro, and Indiana Pacers’ big-man Domantas Sabonis.
