NBA All-Star Roster 2013: Biggest Snubs and Surprises
Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves have been announced, thus filling out the full rosters for the Eastern and Western Conferences.

As always, some inclusions and some exclusions have created some buzz among NBA fans and experts. It's impossible for the fans and coaches to make everybody happy; otherwise, each All-Star team would have 40 players.

All in all, both rosters are pretty solid and without too many issues. Thank goodness the league was spared from having Jeremy Lin earn a starting spot.

That is not to say that the coaches were 100 percent right with whom they selected and omitted.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. Rather, it provides some of the biggest surprises and snubs regarding the 2013 NBA All-Star roster.
