Ben Simmons, Jaylen Brown react to All-Star Game snub

John Wall injury could open door for Miami Heat All-Star

Between getting a new partner in the Pistons' frontcourt in Blake Griffin and getting selected to the 2018 NBA All-Star Game as a replacement for the injured John Wall, things have been looking up for Detroit's young big man. The Celtics, however, have the better record. James and Westbrook are also the only two players to do that for a full season at all in the last 10 years.

Before the start of the game between the Cavs and the Pistons Tuesday, NBA TV's Dennis Scott was interviewing the University of CT product when James came flying in from nowhere to shout "Team LeBron!" at the mic and left just as speedily.

Drummond himself threw some shade at Brown on Instagram while simultaneously praising Simmons. "He's not even the top 3 option on his team". "Got a lot of respect for Ben, his time is coming sooner than he knows".

Simmons is having an impressive season in his own right.

She voiced her concerns by saying, "I still don't understand why legally nothing's happened to him yet". I've been telling my story through my book, my art, the music, all of it.

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).

However, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post wrote "Wall is expected to miss six to eight weeks", meaning he is no chance of suiting up for the February 18, All Star game. Brown is averaging 14.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

"My main focus is just to win the basketball game today", Drummond said following Detroit's 125-114 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Whatever may occur, we aren't likely to be left in suspense for long - DeMarcus Cousins was ruled out of the match through injury earlier this month and his replacement, Paul George, was announced within 24 hours.
