The NBA officially released the All Star reserves for the 2014 NBA All Star Game in New Orleans on Thursday.

The Western Conference All Stars will feature:
  1. LaMarcus Aldridge
  2. Dwight Howard
  3. Damian Lillard
  4. Tony Parker
  5. Dirk Nowitzki
  6. James Harden
  7. Chris Paul

The Eastern Conference All Stars will feature:
  1. Chris Bosh
  2. Roy Hibbert
  3. Joakim Noah
  4. Paul Millsap
  5. DeMar DeRozan
  6. John Wall
  7. Joe Johnson
 
There are always snubs that never make the All Star Game and this year some of them include:
  1. Lance Stephenson
  2. Jeff Teague
  3. Anthony Davis
  4. DeMarcus Cousins
  5. Arron Afflalo
  6. Goran Dragic
 
The All Star starters are picked by the fans, but the All Star reserves are picked by the coaches. There are only a limited amount of roster spots on the All Star game, so not everyone can participate in it. But some of the things that the coaches look for are individual play, overall team record, and likeability. There are some players that have better stats than others, but due to the cult of personality in America along with the importance of a team’s overall record, some players get excluded, while others less deserving may be included.

Joe Johnson? Does not belong.
