The NBA released the names of the reserves who'll round out the rosters for the 2014 All-Star Game in New Orleans on Thursday, proving once and for all that justice is dead.
I'm joking of course, but that'll be the cry from supporters of the many deserving candidates who will have to watch the Feb. 16 exhibition from home. It's impossible to please everybody.
But if you think about it, shouldn't we be glad that so many great players missed out on an All-Star berth? After all, it's supposed to be hard to earn a spot among the league's elite. And on the flip side of every snub, there's a surprise.
So now, a handful of players whose credentials might not scream "All-Star" will get a chance to prove they belong. That's exciting, right?
Anyway, the results are in, as voted on by coaches around the league.
Prepare your righteous indignation or unmitigated joy as necessary. Here come the biggest snubs and surprises from this year's All-Star reserves.
