“Devin Booker He is the most disrespected player in our league !!! Simple as that. “
Lebron James He’s FURIOUS about Devin Booker’s All-Star snub … saying the Phoenix Suns star deserved more than making the team in 2021.
Western Conference reservations were announced Tuesday … and while big names like Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul Y Zion Williamson were chosen, Booker, 24, didn’t make the cut.
Of course, Booker is averaging nearly 25 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists per game … with the Suns red-hot in fourth place in the conference standings with a 20-10 record so far this season.
Apparently, that wasn’t enough for the NBA coaches … who voted for 7 reserves to represent their conference in the game.
King James was furious about the snub on Twitter … and he wasn’t the only one.
Blazers Guard CJ McCollum He also expressed discontent with Book being left out … saying: Damn, @DevinBook really didn’t make it. That’s gross. Bruh very cold too smh. Sick world “
LBJ also chimed in that Lillard was not named a starter for ASG … saying he is the second most disrespected player behind Booker.
Now, there’s still hope that Booker will sneak into the festivities and become a replacement for AD, who is dealing with a calf and Achilles tendon injury.
Warning to the rest of the league: Devin Booker definitely has that motivation heading into the second half of the season.
