Steven Adams snubbed for annual NBA All Star game

Reigning MVP Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, Cleveland's Kevin Love, Boston's Al Horford, Minnesota's Jimmy Butler, San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge, Indiana's Victor Oladipo, Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Portland's Damian Lillard rounded out the All-Star reserves, who were selected by National Basketball Association head coaches.

Besides Porzingis, the rest of the Eastern Conference reserves were Washington's John Wall and Bradley Beal, Boston's Al Horford, Cleveland's Kevin Love, Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Indiana's Victor Oladipo.

Of the list, several players are seeing their first All-Star game, including Oladipo, Porzingus, Beal, Embiid (starter), Lillard, & Karl-Anthony Towns.

When the New York Knicks selected Kristaps Porzingis at No. 4 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft, boos rained down from the crowd in attendance at the Barclays Center. On Tuesday, the National Basketball Association officially announced the full participants for the 2018 All-Star game, and as expected their are a couple snubs.

The Golden State star again has massive numbers this season, as he is averaging 26.2 points per game and connecting on 51.1 percent of his shots from the floor. As of now, Curry and Durant are the only two Warriors who have been selected to play, as each were voted in as starters.

James has first pick from the pool of eight starters while Curry will go first when picking from the pool of 14 reserves.

While some of these reserves may feel like they should've been starting, all that matters is that they're an All-Star. It is the third-year player's first All-Star selection.

Looking down to the Western Conference positions in Fans Returns seems like Stephen Cury (1,369,658) has taken the leading role in funs votes along with his teammate Kevin Durant (1,326,059). With Green and Thompson voted in, the Warriors are the first team to have a record-tying four All-Stars in consecutive years.

All-Star regulars Griffin, Chris Paul, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony also missed out.
