Sacramento Kings v Philadelphia 76ers
There’s been a lot of talk in the NBA lately about the All-Star reserves, and some surprising news left many people raising their eyebrows. Karl-Anthony Towns was named an All-Star reserve, and that had a lot of people wondering why, especially with other deserving players like his teammate Rudy Gobert.
One of the biggest snubs was the Sacramento Kings, who are currently fifth in the Western Conference standings. Despite their strong performance, none of their players were selected for the All-Star game, even though De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis both have impressive stats and have been critical to the Kings’ success.
Kings coach Mike Brown expressed his frustration about this snub in an interview with Marc Spears of ESPN’s Andscape, saying, “It’s clear to anyone who watches the NBA and Kings basketball that De’Aaron and Domantas should have been selected for this year’s All-Star game.”
Brown’s comments raise an important question about the All-Star reserves and who gets to be part of the team. While deserving players often get left off the roster, the limited spots mean tough decisions have to be made. Even if there’s hope for Fox or Sabonis to be injury replacements, it doesn’t change the fact that they were overlooked in the first place.
