On Sunday, March 7, the NBA will once again have its long-awaited All Star Game. After the participation of the public to decide which stars were part of the teams, the organization confirmed who will be the members of each one. Nonetheless, LeBron James did not seem very satisfied with the absence of Devin Brooker and came to his defense on social networks.
“Devin Booker is the most disrespected player in our league! Simple as that“, sentenced the Los Angeles Lakers forward on his personal Twitter account. Despite the anger of the captain of the Western Conference, there is still a chance that the Phoenix Suns man will be in the All-Star Game.
Together with James, the quintet will take to the court with Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic, Kawhi Leonard and Nikola Jokic. For the Eastern Conference, with Kevin Durand at the helm, Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid they will face them. While the window for Brooks is not among the starters, it could open a space for him among the substitutes.
Chris Paul, Paul George, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Zion Williamson and Anthony Davis will be for the West, while James Harden, Julius Randle, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Zach Lavine, Ben Simmons and Nikola Vucevic for the East.
Antohny Davis, LeBron’s teammate on the Lakers, has been injured for a few days and may be absent from the big date. In that case, they’ll have to find a replacement, and Brooker could be.
