NBA All-Star Starters 2014: Biggest Snubs and Surprises from Voting
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

The announcement of the 2014 NBA All-Star Game starters sent a few mixed signals about the overall voting process, but one thing was abundantly clear: Fans aren't too keen on centers anymore.

In the Western Conference, Stephen Curry and Kobe Bryant earned nods as backcourt starters. Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love will round out the lineup up front.

The East will field a similarly center-less squad, featuring Kyrie Irving and Dwyane Wade at the guard spots, and LeBron James, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in the frontcourt.

Remember, this is a popular vote. The people have spoken and it's important to note that this game is just an exhibition. So while it's tempting to get riled up about the various perceived injustices, keep in mind that these are the players most people want to see competing in New Orleans on Feb. 16.

Still, there's room to discuss some of the surprises and snubs in this year's starting lineups.

Whether the shockers resulted from late comebacks in the polls or a glaring omission of clearly deserving talent, All-Star selections are bound to spark discussion. Let's see which players will be the biggest topics of conversation in the days ahead.
