Now let us take a look at each conference and how the rest of All-Star roster might come out.

There is huge competition for the frontcourt spots and many of them deserve a spot, therefore, there is a possibility of 5 frontcourt spots.

This leaves only 2 spots for the guards for which 4 guys are competing namely Ben Simmons, Bradley Beal, Kyle Lowry and Derrick Rose. Any of these 4 will wind up as the biggest snubs from the east.


Guards – Kyle Lowry (TOR), Derrick Rose(DET)

The West has plenty of stars and All-Stars snubs. The absence of Splash Brothers has given way for many new players to take the stage.

Will Brandon Ingram awarded a spot for his breakout season?

Does Devin Booker finally make his first All-Star appearance despite putting up numbers every year?

Will Karl Anthony Towns and Paul George make All-Star team even after missing half the season?

There are a lot of compelling storylines on the Western Conference and plenty of potential for outrageous and unthinkable snubs.
