This was already talked about in the All Star reserves thread.

Lillard should have made it...

Since Harden got in as a reserve, Cousins was the next logical choice. They have both Klay and Harden at SG, right?

Who makes the call, Kerr? Because I do know Curry turns Lillard inside out virtually every time they play, while Boogie is a force of nature on us. So, that could definitely have something to do with it. Lillard's really struggled over the last month+ though, we can't be that shocked.

Lillard should have made it. I'm fine that he didn't though, he's already said he a big factor in his development was being cut from the US team, so this is just more fuel to the fire.

Over Cousins, though? His play over the last month has to be weighing in on this decision.

I don't deny Cousins has Godly numbers, but didn't Kevin Love in Minnesota? I'm not comparing their playing styles, but I guess I'm just skeptical if he would be just as good statistically on an actual winning team.

If good numbers gets you in (and not team record), then I clearly understand why he got in.

I didn't mean to say Lillard should have got in over Cousins because Cousins is playing really well and definitely deserves to be an All-Star.

I just find it funny a guy who is on many Top 10 lists for MVP consideration isn't an all-star. But that's the West. Part of the reason I'm not more mad about this is because Cousins was so deserving and the West is so stacked.

Cousins has a post game and a nice mid range game. Klove is still good guy doesn't get the looks but imo couins is the better player

Im sry but Lillard should have been first in line. He has the stats and his team is better
