Kevin Love Got Snubbed

Kevin LoveThe Eastern and Western Conference All-Star Reserves were announced yesterday. Kevin Love did not find his name on the roster. Here are the players selected:

Western Conference
Manu Ginobili Spurs SG
Tim Duncan Spurs C
Dirk Nowitzki Mavericks PF
Pau Gasol Lakers PF
Deron Williams Jazz PG
Russell Westbrook Thunder PG
Blake Griffin Clippers PF

You can certainly make arguments for players that made it and players that didn't. Kevin Love averaged 21.4 points and 15.5 rebounds a game in the first half. With those numbers, a player would be up for MVP consideration. Unfortunately, the Minnesota Timberwolves 11-37 record hurt them and ultimately was a deciding factor. I still think Kevin Love was snubbed.
