Top scorer Embiid, not Anthony Davis, but Zion? NBA All-Star Best 5 Controversy Aftermath
The NBA All-Star Game Best 5 has been announced.
Gorgeous. For the Eastern Conference, Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland), Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn), Kevin Durant (Brooklyn), Jayson Tatum (Boston), and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee) were selected.
In the West, Stephen Curry (Golden State), Luka Doncic (Dallas), LeBron James (LA Lakers), Zion Williamson (New Orleans), and Nikola Jokic (Denver) were selected.
A player who can be selected well enough. These are the players who have been very active this season.
By the way, another beauty of the selection of the All-Star Best 5 is to mention the unfortunate players.
There is one each in East and West. First of all, Philadelphia Joel Embiid is mentioned. Embiid, Philadelphia’s ace and one of the league’s best big men, leads the league in scoring.
He is averaging 33.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.7 blocked shots. There is no player who can match the dominance of the ball and defense. However, he was excluded from the best 5.
Every aspect of the eastern front court is so gorgeous. 안전놀이터
In the West, some ‘controversy’ arose. Because of Anthony Davis (LA Lakers). He is out of business due to an injury. He appeared in only 26 games. He averaged 27.2 points, 12.1 rebounds, 2.2 blocked shots and 1.3 steals per game. Yatoo efficiency reaches a whopping 60.7%. In both offense and defense, he was a big man who dominated the league. Prior to his injury, he was mentioned as a strong MVP candidate along with Luka Doncic this season.
There is also an evaluation that ‘Anthony Davis should have been included without Zion Williamson’. Zion Williamson played in 29 games and averaged 26.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists.
In terms of data, he’s a weak pick for the best five. He didn’t even show off his game control. Besides, he only appeared in 29 games, similar to Davis.
This season, the league trend is extremely dependent on superstars. Players who could have been selected in the best 5 in previous years suffered a lot.
