Joel Embiid not named an All-Star starter for the first time in six seasons, proving yet again the NBA Deep State is real
The NBA officially released the starting lineups for the All-Star game and surprise, surprise, Joel Embiid is NOT a starter this year.
It’s the first time in SIX SEASONS that Joel Embiid was not named a starter which makes absolutely zero sense because he’s currently in the midst of his best season ever as a basketball player in the NBA.
Instead, here are the starting lineups for the All-Star Game.
East All-Star Starters:
- Giannis Antetokounmpo
- Jayson Tatum
- Kevin Durant
- Kyrie Irving
- Donovan Mitchell
West All-Star Starters:
- LeBron James
- Stephen Curry
- Luka Doncic
- Nikola Jokic
- Zion Williamson
The Philadelphia 76ers are the second seed in the Eastern Conference and Joel Embiid is basically tied with Luka Doncic in the race for the scoring title. Name one other player that is doing what Joel Embiid does on both ends of the court while being the anchor on offense and defense. You can’t.
Embiid is literally the best center in the Eastern Conference and some how, some way, he’s not starting in the All-Star game?
Yeah okay. lol.
Well, it’s certainly nothing new here in Philadelphia when it comes to basketball. Embiid has never and probably will never get the respect he deserves. The sooner everyone comes to terms with that the better.
In fact, I wish Embiid would take it a step further and just tell the NBA and the All-Star game to completely fuck off and not even attend. If they aren’t going to respect them, then why even go in the first place?
I’m sure James Harden will get the nod as a reserve for the East so maybe Embiid and Harden just skip the event all together and have a mic’d open practice shoot around at The Wells Fargo Center instead. Honestly, it would be more entertaining that whatever nonsense All-Star Weekend has going on.
