You know what time it is, fellas? Snub O’Clock!

Time to dissect who the most abhorrent snubs from the 2021 All-Star game is while also willfully forgetting the fact that there are a finite number of spots and many great players in the league, thus we will engage in this innocuous song and dance every single year until the aliens abduct us!

Spin the wheel!

Devin Booker failed to secure an All-Star spot this season after notching his first last season, and Dame Lillard was selected as a reserve (not a starter) despite playing at an MVP clip: 29.8 points, 7.9 assists, and 4.3 rebounds per contest.

Booker is averaging 24.7 points, 4.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds for the surging Suns, but his teammate Chris Paul got the nod over him (16.6 points, 8.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game). The 35-year-old Paul has totally transformed the identity of the Suns franchise, slowing down the pace and skyrocketing offense efficiency for him and his teamamtes, Booker included.

LeBron is not the only one who simply CaNnOt dEaL.

Devin joins fellow snubbers Trae Young, Bam Adebayo, Mike Conley, and oh yes…

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
