Damian Lillard (2x All Star)
25.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 6.5apg, 1.1 spg
Lillard can take claim to the fact of being the greatest snub in All-star history. In the previous 2 seasons, Lillard averaged 26 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.3 assists a night. Yet he never got a nod for the game. As stated above, his numbers are all-star worthy. Taking advantage of the struggles of other teams, Portland led by Lillard have once again crept back into playoff contention.
Despite a couple of minor injuries, he has more than deserved his spot in the matches played so far. 25 points and 6 assists and almost 5 rebounds are excellent numbers. And he is shooting a fairly decent 42.8% and over 90% from the foul line.
Lillard had little time over his last 2 all-star outings. With him being snubbed and knowing it, he has more than justified his selection for this event, and will want to show everyone he is up there with the best point guards in the league.
