Only SIX other All-Stars are averaging this or better, your biggest All-Star snub of the 2017-2018 NBA Season is Devin Booker. pic.twitter.com/3SGkKV6AN4

Well, Boogie has been declared out for the season after blowing his achilles, so the NBA needed a replacement for the all-star game. They decided to pick Paul George over Devin Booker. Paul George is currently averaging 21 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 3.0 APG, and 2.2 STL. While Booker is currently bringing in 24.8 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 4.7 APG. SIX total All-Stars have better numbers – no clue what went into this decision to pick George over Booker. Yeah, the Suns stink, so what? Booker has been the better player this season, isn’t that the point of picking all-stars for that given season? It’s obvious that this was a straight reputation pick.
