Just minutes after the starters for the 2014 NBA All-Star game was announced, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey voiced his disapproval for the voting system after no Rocket was included in the Western Conference starting lineup. Dwight Howard, who was ranked 2nd in the Western frontcourt as recently as the 3rd ballot returns, lost out on a top-3 spot as Kevin Love gained over 20,000 votes to move into the starting lineup.

 

 

The starters will be Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, and Kevin Love, while the East starters will be Kyrie Irving, Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony. No true center will be on the court, but Morey’s tweet is indirectly related to the fact that Howard got snubbed out of the lineup.

 

All-Star reserves will be announced next Thursday, Jan. 30.

    I think NBA needs to give Morey a substantial fine to shut him up for his selfishness and eccentricity.
