One of the NBA All-Star game’s biggest snubs is getting a second chance after Rajon Rondo went out with a season ending injury. Brook Lopez will get to suit up in Houston for the Eastern conference as the league decided to award him with the vacant roster spot.

Not a terrible call by the NBA, but they could have still went a couple of different directions with this decision.

Lopez is averaging 18.6 points per game shooting at 52.3%, while pulling down 7.3 rebounds a game, with a PER of 25.1 (a number that normally suggests All-Star lock).

Some people may argue that Brook is the most talented center in the league when talking about offensive skill set.

Whatever, I still think J.R. Smith should have got the nod. When the hell does a center replace a point guard anyway?
