Davis snub for reserve spot on West All Stars, but could still play in game
Pelicans second year forward Anthony Davis is averaging 20 points, 1o rebounds, and over 3 blocks per game. But, those are not numbers good enough to get him into the February 16th NBA All Star game at New Orleans Arena.
Davis failed to make the team as a reserve in a vote of Western Conference coaches. Each coach could not vote for his own player.
Davis was hindered by the stellar amount of talent in the West. The reserves are Houston’s Dwight Howard and James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard of Portland, Chris Paul of the Clippers, Tony Parker of San Antonio, and Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas.
Davis could still be voted in the game by new NBA commissioner Adam Silver. He could replace the injured Kobe Bryant of the Lakers.
