Damian Lillard Named to Multiple All-NBA Snub Lists

Damian Lillard Named to Multiple All-NBA Snub Lists

He also was snubbed for the NBA All-Star team in a West loaded with elite guards. Earlier this year, he rapped about it, and two years ago, he sarcastically thanked the National Basketball Association for missing out in a deleted Instagram post. "We could go down the list and talk about each one individually". But the Trail Blazers point guard just had the best season of his career. In addition to being one of the league's top perimeter defenders, Thompson averaged a career-best 22.3 points and ranked second behind Curry with 268 three-pointers.

Iguodala, in his third season as a leader of Golden State's second unit, led the league in assists per turnover (4.5) and was seventh among players who played at least 70 games in steals per turnover (1.3). The eighth-year guard, who was named a starter on the Western Conference All-Star team for a fourth consecutive season, set an National Basketball Association single-game record with 13 three-pointers on November 7 vs. If you add Thompson, who gets eliminated? John Wall and DeMar DeRozan, the third-team guards, took the final two spots ahead of Thompson. First the Warriors must take care of the Spurs and there is a collision course set for the Warriors and Cavs to meet for a third straight time in June.

Golden State guard Klay Thompson was well back in the backcourt voting, a snub that brought the most spark from his Warriors teammates. As one-man offenses become more prevalent, this trend doesn't seem like it will be dying. Although Green was named to the third team, you could argue he deserves a first team selection given his versatility and the way he impacts the game on both ends of the floor. If Portland was better around the All-Star break, maybe Lillard earns more consideration for that.

After Yates, more questions for the Trump White House
Yates was appointed Deputy Attorney General under President Barack Obama, but had previously been appointed by President George W. Spicer added that he was not aware of any security restrictions placed on Flynn after the warning.

"No feelings. They pick who they pick", Durant said. So many players had great seasons.

After taking a couple years to prove himself in the National Basketball Association, former Michigan State star Draymond Green is consistently earning some of the league's highest honors. If this isn't good enough for even an All-Star nod, what will be?

And as Mashable also observed, other sports fans, already a superstitious group, tried to latch on to the trend, with one fan asking Toronto Raptors player DeMar DeRozan to sign a toaster too. But that's Lillard, a player who sits right on the fringe of the highest tier of National Basketball Association stars.
