My 2021 NBA All-Star reserves selections are here. Now before we begin, is anyone tired of NBA players whining about themselves or others getting snubbed?
Not to get on a negative soapbox but let’s make some sense of this. The current roster format allows for 24 players at the most to become an All-Star each season. Even if we wanted to pick an All-Star from each team guess what? We CAN’T!
Also, what about teams like the Nets, Celtics, Lakers, Jazz, and Clippers who have multiple All-Star players? You got it, hard to take a player from each team factoring this in.
Expanding the roster limit is. astart. I’m on board for maybe 14 spots and a total of 28 players at the most. Do we need to see 30-35 players selected? An All-Star selection can me meany of things. Contracted bonuses for being an All-Star, accolade to add to a resume, and another opportunity to market said player with the title “All-Star”. Do we want to keep this award prestigious or not? I’ll leave that for you to decide.
The NBA officially released the reserves available to be drafted to either Team LeBron or Team Durant.
A few weeks ago I gave you all my 2021 NBA All-Stars starters. No surprises besides the fact I left off Kyrie Irving, interchanged starters and reserves that were actually selected, and Devin Booker > Chris Paul.
Furthermore, I am here to give you the ultimate 2021 NBA All-Stars reserves selections thus far in the hectic season.
