Danilo Gallinari An All Star Snub

New, comments

Despite the team and Gallo's best efforts, he did not make the all-star squad

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

According to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Consitution, Danilo Gallinari was not among those selected as reserves for the NBA Western Conference All Star team.

The obvious choice for who Gallo would be more deserving of a bid is LaMarcus Aldridge. Gallo averages about four more points a game than Aldridge but does not grab nearly as many boards. Both player's efficiency ratings are fairly similar, hovering around 19.5. Both players also rate very similarly in win shares. In the end perhaps the nod goes to Aldridge because his team has a far superior record and had he not been selected only one of the San Antonio Spurs, the team with the NBA's second best record, would have been part of the game.
