The starters are selected by you, the fans, and the reserves are selected by the coaches. One of the snubs that took me by surprise was Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers. Sure he may not be popular with the fan but I was confident that the coaches would see his growth to be at least a reserve for the West team. Here is Lillard’s statement earlyer in the season if he did not make the team: image

 Lillard posted this message to Instagram after the reserves were announced:

Another notable snub would have been Sacramento King DeMarcus Cousins but it has been announced that Cousins will replaced the injured Kobe Bryant for the West. Players will always feel they have been left out if not voted in but these two players have improved their games to were their talents should be awarded by representing their team in the All-Star game.
