The REAL NBA All-Star Game snubs

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Not only was Stephen Curry snubbed from being an All-Star, but so were these players.

Everyone's got their list of players they think should have made the NBA All-Star Game. But I don't think anyone can disagree with this list.

Daniel Orton - The young Oklahoma City Thunder center is averaging 48 points per 48 minutes this season. Sure, he's only played a couple minutes this season, but with that kind of production, he has to be an automatic selection.

DeSagana Diop - The All-Star Game is a time when no one gives a crap and NBA stars can live out their on-court fantasies. Dwight Howard will play point guard. But we've already seen that. I want to see Diop try to dribble. I want to see Diop try to take a player in isolation. Now THAT would be entertainment.

Nick Young - Most swag in the NBA, hands down. It's his nickname, for crying out loud. If that's not worth anything in an All-Star game consideration, I don't know what is.

Cory Higgins - The Bobcats were 3-3 with him. Since then, the Bobcats are 7-29. Looks like he was the real difference-maker for them. I mean, if you can lead Charlotte to a .500 record, you have to be an All-Star.

Jan Vesely - Look at this face and tell me that's not the face of an All-Star.

Andrew Bynum - With hair like his, you don't need to play a game to be an All-Star in my book.

Patrick Beverley - He was on track to make the PER Hall of Fame. ‘Nuff said.

Ivan Johnson - Do you want to be the one to tell Ivan Johnson he wasn't selected to the All-Star Game? I don't.

Mitch Kupchak - Sir, I know the NBA All-Star Game is usually reserved for the players, but I'd like to extend this gesture of gratitude for creating my favorite Lakers team of all-time.
