By now you know Damian Lillard was not selected to be part of the NBA All Star game in NYC on Valentine’s weekend. He was also passed up by Commissioner Silver for the injury replacement for Kobe Bryant. That spot went to DeMarcus Cousins. Lillard as you might expect is very upset and his emotions seems to be between anger and sadness. There is no shame being left off the Western All Star squad because it is a loaded team. Everyone who knows the NBA knows Lillard is easily an All Star talent, it just came down to roster spots. He is basically putting the league on notice that he is going to be on beast mode for the second half.
