Question NBA Players Who Should Be All-Stars

There are a lot of players in this league who haven't been all-stars but should be. Recently, I was watching a video called "Monta Ellis 48 points vs Thunder" and it got me thinking. Why isn't this guy an all-star? He's had 4 seasons where he averaged 20 ppg or more. Back when he was with the Warriors, he had averages of 25.5 an d 24.1 ppg respectively. Crazy to think he wasn't an all-star in any of his Warrior days. With the Bucks he had good averages but his shooting % wasn't all that good. Still averaged solid numbers there. Last year as a member of the Dallas Mavericks the guy finished with averages of 19/5.7/3.6/2 on 45/32/78. Hey if Joe Johnson could become an all-star, why can't this guy be one? Monta have it all.

Another guy that immediately comes to mind is Al Jefferson. Though he might be a bad defensive player, he can still impact a team with his offensive skill and rebounding. Many centers like DeMarcus Cousins have come out and said that Al Jefferson was the hardest player they've had to guard. What really pissed me off was that the human garbage, Roy Hibbert, made it into the all-star game when Big Al didn't. For comparison, Roy averaged 12/8 before the all-star game (lol) and Jefferson averaged 20/10/1. Talk about getting snubbed...

Al Jefferson made the 3rd team All NBA team this year tho, which is a much better the allstar game. So did Goran Dragic.

All-NBA team shows that ur good, not a popularity driven all star game

Ty Lawson might be the most underrated player in the league, with so many flashy pg's

His impact is immense

I forgot about Lawson. He's one of the least talked about point guards when he's one of the best in the league. Definitely under-appreciated
