A team gets its first All-Star in 16 years. They've been wandering, starless, through the desert, and finally, this guy's featured in the big game. In that game, he represents the ascent of a much maligned franchise, and the validation of the new owner's controversial signing. Can you really argue that this team needs less of the star, be it by trade or minutes allotment? Yes. You can make these arguments when the All-Star is David Lee and the team is the Golden State Warriors.
