PBT Extra: Joel Embiid, Rudy Gobert were biggest All-Star Game snubs


There are always snubs when it comes to choosing an NBA All-Star team because there are always more players on the bubble and deserving than there are slots. (And there should be 13 slots now, not 12, but that’s a different discussion for another day.) Still, on the whole, I thought this year was better than years past because no past-his-prime player was soaking up a roster spot thanks to the fans want to see him one more time.

But there were still snubs.

In this PBT Extra, I say the two biggest were Joel Embiid in the East and Rudy Gobert in the West. You can make a case for others — Damian Lillard might top that list — but the two bigs are my guys.
