Chris Herring

Amundson's career-high for points in a game is 21, for those wondering. At 14 now in the first half. Good for him.

Tim Bontemps

If you think Cousins isn't an All-Star this year, that's fine. If you think it's because he didn't get the Kings enough wins, that's crazy.

Kyle Draper

My first choice to replace Kobe is Damian Lillard. No question he's had an all star caliber season on a winning team.

Mark Montieth

Knicks are learning the Triangle. Getting good shots. Making up for lack of talent. Lou Amundsen has 14 at the half.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have had player in 36 of 38 All-Star Games since coming into NBA in '76-'77

Tim Bontemps

Anyone thinking one player singlehandedly can determine the course of a franchise is severely discounting the value of a competent org.

Chris Herring

Amundson has 12 points here early, right behind Melo who has 14. But Knicks down five, 50-45 just before half.

Kyle Draper

Cousins is a really good player but in essence he's putting up numbers for a really bad team.

Adam Zagoria

West All-Star Reserves: Klay Thompson LaMarcus Aldridge Tim Duncan Kevin Durant Russell Westbrook James Harden Chris Paul

Kyle Draper

A lot of people feel Cousins got snubbed. I disagree. Who should he get in over? Duncan? Please Spurs 13 games above .500 Kings 12 gms under

Four first-time All-Stars this year - Jimmy Butler (Chicago), Kyle Lowry (Toronto), Jeff Teague (Atlanta), Klay Thompson (Golden State)

Brendan Bowers

Thought the 52 would be enough to get Mo back in #snubbed #mogotti #allstar

Jonah Ballow

After a couple of inactives, Early in the lineup late in the 1st here in Indy.

Candace Buckner

Quincy Acy = if Rick Ross lost 200 pounds.

David Locke

Follow up #2 on interview with @1280Spence Jazz defense 5th best at forcing "smart" shots - Chicago, Washington, Portland, Indiana ahead

Tim Bontemps

Lillard is a terrific player, but the Western Conference is stacked. Cousins is a bigger snub than even Lillard is, anyway, in my opinion.

Chris Herring

Cleanthony Early getting set to check in, which is nice to see, since he's sat out the past few games.

Lang Greene

Pissed off about the All-Star reserve selections? Vent here. My weekly NBA chat goes live in 20 minutes basketballinsiders.com/chat/nba-chat-…

Candace Buckner

#Knicks now with the Son Lineup (Shane Larkin and Hardaway, Jr.) and right on cue, Tim drops a 3. NYK up 27-16

Charles F. Gardner

Jorge touted as good defender and steals ball from Willie Green almost immediately.

Chris Herring

Jumbotron here just showed a 3- or 4-yr old girl completely knocked out during the 1Q of this game. Good times.

Tim Bontemps

For people asking about Damian Lillard, I would've put him in over Kevin Durant. But if you think Durant should make it who do you take out?

Joe Freeman

LaMarcus Aldridge, on TNT, when asked reaction to Dame's All-Star snub: "I was highly surprised. I thought he was going to be in for sure."

Tina Cervasio

Jason Smith still wiping away blood on that lip. Shaking head a lot. Seems like that jaw hurts. #Knicks

Gary Dzen

Gonna be a couple minutes late on #99Bottles. Sorting through the VIP list. (putting my son in his pajamas)

Aaron Falk

If I had to pick replacements for Wade and Kobe, I'd go with Korver and Cousins. But the reality is that nobody cares what I think.

Emiliano Carchia

Eastern Conference All-Star Reserves announced sportando.com/en/usa/nba/150…

Paul Flannery

I'd get salty about the All Stars but I finally made it to New Orleans after 3 days of blizzard headaches so

David Locke

Follow up from interview with @1280Spence Jazz are 10th in NBA at taking "smart" shots 61% of shots in restricted or 3's

Tim Kawakami

The Tom Gamble hire is good for Baalke. Good for Tomsula. Good for the team. One step.

Ben Standig

The stat showing Ohio State with 4 assists on 6 FG looks great, except they have 6 FG in 13 min. Yes, Terps worse.

Dan Gelston

Wayne Simmonds makes it 2-1 Flyers.

Charles F. Gardner

Meanwhile Bucks have 25-17 lead late in first quarter. Jorge Gutierrez just checking for Bucks debut.

Michael Scotto

Damian Lillard on possible All-Star snub yesterday: "I’m going to be pissed off & you’ll see a re-energized Damian Lillard after the break."

Steve Kyler

Here is a fun nugget -- Luke Walton makes the All-Star Team for the West -- as part of Steve Kerr's coaching staff.

David Locke

It is so disappointing to me this league still doesn't understand the impact Kyle Korver has on games

Jorge Sierra

Over/under for points by Damian Lillard and DeMarcus Cousins in their next games?

Jeff Wade

An actual sleeping human on the trip with us RT @AmandaNBC5 --- @BenRogers @Jeff Wade - What. Are. Those. NOISES????!!!

Mike Richman

Maurice Lucas and Bill Walton (1977, 1978) still the only Blazer teammates to make consecutive All-Star Games.

Beto Duran

"THANKS PAU" shirt for fans at Lakers game tonight http://t.co/syHbCmkDHL

Andrew Sharp

Solution to the All-Star process is to keep adding All-Stars until everyone in the league gets selected except Dwight

Tom Ziller

The case against the case against Boogie Cousins, All-Star. Next time on Zerial. (Seriously I'm not saying anything else until tomorrow.)

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul [cont.]: "I am blessed to be able to represent the Clippers organization in New York with Blake."

Tim Kawakami

Set to go on @YSTL show at 5 pm with the biggest All-Star snub of them all: @RattoCSN.

Chris Sheridan

Kyle Korver was more deserving than Dwyane Wade for All-Star. It is not even close. Dude is shooting 53 percent on high-volume 3s (262)

Candace Buckner

That was a pretty sharp change of directions for George Hill on that sore groin. #goodsign or #becarefulson

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul statement: "It is a true honor to be selected by the coaches to be in the All-Star Game." [cont.]

Tas Melas

Jimmy Butler said this last month: “I don't want to be a star, I just want to be a decent role player on a really good team.” Great guy.

Emiliano Carchia

Western Conference All-Star Reserves announced sportando.com/en/usa/nba/150…

Mike Richman

Lillard would've joined Sidney Wicks, Maurice Lucas and Brandon Roy as only Blazers to make multiple AS Games in their first 3 NBA seasons

Steve Kyler

Here is how the All-Star teams look today: http://t.co/OV6WyrnYre

Michael De Leon

Duncan selected for 2015 NBA All-Star Game ift.tt/1wFVrI1 #spurs

Jason Kosmicki

In my opinion @DeMarcus Cousins is the best big man in the NBA. The #AllStar thingy is on the short side of silly.

Charles F. Gardner

Spoelstra on Knight: "I think everybody views him as an all-star; he's having that kind of year."

Tas Melas

LaMarcus Aldridge better not be wearing my ear piece on @NBAonTNT.

Candace Buckner

David West, Facilitator. Finds Rodney Stuckey cutting to the basket for the layup. He's credited with 1 asst but active in moving the ball

Ben Bolch

So, the Lakers game follows the All-Star announcements on TNT? That's like having the amuse bouche after the 50-ounce double porterhouse.

Lang Whitaker

James Harden, Klay Thompson & three @Jaryd Wilson highlight the @NBAAllStar reserves: on.nba.com/18AyORa

Kurt Helin

James Harden, three Hawks players lead list of NBA All-Star Game reserves dlvr.it/8JQXqr

Charles F. Gardner

Brandon Jennings, who was traded for Knight and Middleton, saying he thought Knight should be all-star. Very impressive.

Sean Highkin

Jimmy Butler on TNT reacting to first selection: "I'm excited. I'm really at a loss for words that a kid from Tomball is going to the ASG."

James Ham

DeMarcus Cousins comes up empty as All-Star reserve shar.es/1o1WNu

Ronald Tillery

Griz announce Mike Conley (left wrist sprain) will not play tonight vs Nuggets gogrizzlies.com

Mike Tokito

It's meaningful that Aldridge has passed Roy, whom he came into NBA with, and Lucas, his former coach, in All-Star picks.

Charles F. Gardner

Now Knight has chance to replace injured Wade on East roster.

Ben Bolch

Wait, the Lakers haven't been pulled from ALL TNT GAMES???

Ted Davis

#MILvORL Magic take a time out Bucks lead 25-13 with 2:52 left in the 1st q @620wtmj

Mike Monroe

#Spurs Tim Duncan will play All-Star Game for coach who got 2 championship rings because he was TD's teammate in '99 and '03 #MorePT

Ben Bolch

Shaq, feel free to chime in...Bueller?

Nathan Begley

Cannot hate on the Klay Thompson selection though, especially after that 37 point craziness.

Paul Garcia

For the 15th time in his career, San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan has been selected as an NBA All-Star: projectspurs.com/2015-articles/…
