On Thursday the All Star reserves was announced on TNT. One "snub" that you can make the argument for is the point guard of the Phoenix Suns Goran Dragic. The Phoenix Suns are the biggest surprise in the NBA season this year. Before the season started everybody including myself (a Suns fan) thought the Phoenix Suns were going to be in the hunt for the #1 pick in the NBA draft lottery.
Well right now the Suns are in the playoff picture in the hard western conference. Dragic is averaging 19 points and 6 assist and he should get a spot on the all star team. No one has been paying attention to the Suns because everyone including the sports media only cares about the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Indiana Pacers. The Phoenix Suns swept the Pacers in the season series but no one talks about it. When TNT showed the highlights of the game they focused only on the Pacers. So even when they win they get no love.
Dragic may be the biggest loser in the All Star snub category because in his contract he gets a million dollar bonus if he makes the All Star team. there is some hope for Dragic because with injuries to Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul there might be 2 spots open for Dragic and if he gets one of them he will be a million dollars richer.
