This is completely unacceptable. The NBA’s league leader in rebounds at 13.0 RPG, 2nd in triple-doubles at 13, 1st in double-doubles at 42, an MVP candidate who has led the Kings to a 27-19 which is the 5th seed in the Western Conference won’t be in Indianapolis for NBA All-Star weekend.
Here is Sabonis’ season averages through 46 games this season and you tell me if this isn’t worthy of joining the best the NBA has to offer:
61.6 FG%/45.1 3PT%/68.0 FT%
Sabonis should have been put in over Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves. To go along with this, his partner in crime with the Sacramento Kings in De’Aaron Fox didn’t even make the cut. An all-time snub in the voting process. What a travesty.
