LeBron James takes to Twitter to let everybody know that he doesn’t agree with Devin Booker not making the West All-Star team.
With the NBA announcing the results for their All-Star team reserves in both conferences, there were bound to be several unhappy fans who believed their favorite star got ‘snubbed’ from receiving All-Star honors. It happened when the starters were announced and fans believed Dame deserved the starting spot over Luka Doncic and fans are following suit with the reserve selections as well.
This time around, fans believe guys like Trae Young, Domantas Sabonis, and Khris Middleton deserved to get into the ASG this year. However, the noise has been the loudest when it comes to Devin Booker.
Booker’s teammate Chris Paul was elected to be an All-Star this season as CP3 and Booker have led the Suns to the 4th seed out West. LeBron James seems took to Twitter to air out his frustrations on the matter.

Bron seems to have not taken the Devin Booker ‘snubbing’ all too lightly as he took to Twitter to tweet that he believes the Suns star is the most disrespected star in this league.
Devin Booker is the most disrespected player in our league!!! Simple as that.

It should be noted that James’s partner in crime, Anthony Davis, is currently out due to a right calf strain and likely won’t be available to participate in the All-Star Game this season.
This would mean that D-Book would have a chance at making the team for the first time in his career, as an injury replacement in place of Davis. He certainly is deserving of it as he’s averaging 24.7 points while shooting 50% from the field.
DBook making the ASG isn’t a guarantee, however, as the Western Conference is filled with players who are deserving of an All-Star nod as well. Guys like DeMar DeRozan and Mike Conley could also very well be in this conversation.
