Chris Paul Unhappy With Devin Booker All-Star Snub
The NBA All-Star Game selections are always a point of contention every season, as there are too many talented players to all be recognized. While Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul earned his 11th All-Star nomination, his teammate, Devin Booker, was left off the roster.
CP3 made it clear that his All-Star selection isn't as joyous given Booker's snub.
Paul's selection likely came at the cost of Booker not earning an All-Star nod. Few teams ever get two All-Stars, and that honor is usually reserved for bigger markets like Los Angeles.
CP3 is having a stellar season as Phoenix's floor general, averaging 16.6 points, 8.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game. Booker, meanwhile, is averaging 24.7 PPG, 4.3 APG and 3.8 RPG. Both players are deserving as the Suns find themselves No. 4 in the Western Conference.
Booker still has a shot to make the team, as Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis has been hampered by a nagging Achilles injury and may not be healthy enough to suit up, opening the door for the Suns' young star to make the team as a replacement.
