Best NBA Players With No All-Star Appearance

Is the NBA All-Star an absolute indicator of a players’ ability? To an extent, but it’s half a popularity contest among NBA fans and somewhat of the same among NBA head coaches. For John Wall, Brandon Jennings and Ty Lawson it’s about a loaded position; for Al Jefferson it’s about playing for unpopular teams. For Monta Ellis and Josh Smith? Actually, that’s a bit harder to explain.

1. Al Jefferson, Utah Jazz

Averaged 19.2 points and 9.6 rebounds last season

2. Josh Smith, Atlanta Hawks

Averaged 18.8 points and 9.6 rebounds last season.

3. DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings

Averaged 18.1 points and 11 rebounds last season.

4. Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets

Averaged 16.4 points and 6.6 assists last season.

5. John Wall, Washington Wizards
