After all the dust has cleared from NBA All Star replacements being named, these players appear to be the biggest snubs.
3. James Harden Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers hold the third-best record in the Eastern Conference yet only got one All Star selection. James Harden has been a huge part of what this team has done to get there. It could easily be argued that Harden is more deserving than Tyrese Haliburton. Harden is averaging more points and assists per game than him and his team is in third in the East, not 12th.
2. Jimmy Butler Miami Heat
There were just too many guards in the East that Butler along with Harden and Jalen Brunson were all left off. All these players could have made a case for being more worthy than Tyrese Haliburton (not to bash on him because the NBA coaches voted him in). All Stars are usually selected based on how much they affect their team and stats are second. But when the stats and winning is both superior, then it seems like a no-brainer. Not for Butler I guess.
1. Jalen Brunson New York Knicks
The Knicks missed the play-in last year and made one big change to the roster this year. That was adding Jalen Brunson and now they find themselves sixth in the East. Brunson has effected this team greatly and also has the stats to back it up with 23.9 points and 6.2 assists while shooting over 41% from three.
