The NBA is filled with lots and lots and lots of super talented players. So unfortunately, there are always guys who get snubbed when it comes time to pick the NBA All-Star Game rosters every season. And this year is no different. As we told you last night, there are at least five players who we think should be playing in the ASG this year who weren't selected to take part in it. There was just no more room for them.
One of the players that we brought up is Pacers guard Lance Stephenson. He has been one of the most consistent players in the league this season—averaging 14.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game—but he was left off the Eastern Conference's ASG roster in favor of guys like Dwyane Wade and Joe Johnson. And that doesn't sit real well with us. It also doesn't sit well with Lil Wayne, who voiced his opinion on Stephenson's snub on Twitter early this morning:

Preach. We know that not everyone can make the ASG. But we'd much rather see Born Ready suit up for the game than D-Wade or JJ. Maybe next year...?
