Not everyone can make the All-Star team, and all the chatter about expanding the rosters to 15 misses the point about All-Star selections entirely. All-Star spots are reserved for only the creme de la creme. Given the exclusive nature of the honor, there are always going to be omissions that people like to characterize as “snubs,” regardless of whether that term is even apt in most cases.
Once you start digging into the evidence and considering all the mitigating factors, there are only a very small handful who you can argue qualify as snubs, and even some of those dubiously so.
Regardless, today we pay tribute to the biggest snubs from the 2017 NBA All-Star Game. As always, gripes – respectful or otherwise – can be made in the comments.
