"NBA All Star selection gripes from players"

Every year these cats complain about being snubbed or looked over in All Star selection

In an effort to make the teams more i guess fair or balanced the NBA traded one popularity contest judged by fans, in for.....another popularity contest, but this time judged by peers

its why ive never understood how the number of NBA All Star selections by a player is used as some sort of metric of a players value, when its not based off of hard work

wouldnt it make more sense to take the top player from each conference in the top 3 categories of offense and defense...

*Offense*
Points
Assists
3 Points Made

*Defense*
Rebounds
Steals
Blocks

if a player in any conference tops more than one list, choose the next player down (Harden topped 2 lists)

then let the coaches and fans pick the rest of the roster

that way, if you didnt make the team, thats on you and how much you really wanted it.


here is what those teams would look like going into this all star weekend:

East
Giannis PF Points
Trae Young PG Assists
Andre Drummond C Rebound
Brook Lopez C Blocks
Davis Bertans SF 3 Point
Ben Simmons PG Steals

West
Harden SG Points
LeBron SF Assists
Gobert C Rebound
Whiteside C Blocks
Lillard PG 3 Point
Kawhi SF Steals
