Same goes for Booker and Sabonis. If they all get Covid and can’t play the game does that mean they can just name 24 other players as stars? NBA needs to fix this.
Literally nobody will think that. Conley is an all-star now. That will forever be on his resume. After this week nobody will remember he replaced an injured player... and they shouldn't because it doesn't matter.
I think that too. Conley got robbed from a roster spot a few years ago, so I'm glad he has an Allstar selection in his resume now. BUT I don't agree with NBA's logic. Some years have 27 allstars, some years have 24, I think there was one year with 31 or 32.
Would DeRozan get the nod if someonelse gets injured? is he supposed to wish that? Maybe NBA should select 30 allstars every year, but only 24 get to play or all 30 get to play but no injury replacements.
Now Booker has an asterix.
