Aussie Ben Simmons overlooked again for All-Stars

03 February 2018

Still, Drummond deserves his spot on Team LeBron, and while Brown has been impressive in his second National Basketball Association season, he hasn't yet earned his All-Star stripes (he will be playing in the Future Stars game during All-Star weekend). The chosen player will then play for Team Lebron in the all-star game.

Andre Drummond has been selected to replace John Wall among the Eastern Conference representatives for the All-Star game and Ben Simmons may not agree with the pick.

In the end, he went with a player who has improved by leaps and bounds over last season, especially on the offensive side of the floor.

Roma have failed to agree a fee with Manchester United for Daley Blind and have moved for Sporting Lisbon left back Jonathan Silva.

While Drummond's analysis of the Celtic offense may be a little off (Brown's 11.3 attempts per game are second among all Boston options), it seems perfectly reasonable to suggest that Drummond (averaging a double-double, with 14.8 points and 15.3 rebounds per game, this season) was the more deserving of the two.

Simmons was snubbed for February 18 showpiece game despite major support from fans, with Washington's Wall one of the six Eastern Conference guards selected ahead of the 21-year-old Australian. Ben Simmons, who is in the midst of a tremendous rookie season with the Philadelphia 76ers, also tweeted out some displeasure at being overlooked himself.

The Detroit Pistons center, of course, was happy about these developments, so he "liked" a post on Instagram on Tuesday night about getting the nod while Brown and Simmons sulked.

The "a" here may mean Active, while "q" and "lte" could mean it may sport a Qualcomm processor along with LTE connectivity. All the major Samsung smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S8 , S8+, Note 8 and S8 Active will receive the update.

But hey, who knows, maybe Simmons and Brown were simply watching entertaining TV shows or playing video games, and that's what they were reacting to around the exact moment that the Drummond announcement happened. Additionally, Drummond's making 54.9 percent of his shots and 61.9 percent of his free throws, another drastic improvement.

Drummond, whose team recently added Blake Griffin, was 9th, 5th and 6th, respectively.
