The NBA is incredibly deep and that means there are tough decisions to make when it comes to picking the All-Star teams. Every player on both of the rosters this year is great. But, are some players worthy of going to New Orleans, especially with this year's glaring snubs? Here are this year's three most over-hyped All-Star players.
3. DeMarcus Cousins
Yes, Boogie puts up great numbers, but we have yet to know whether he can be a part of a contender. Let's hope a team deals for him before the deadline so we can finally see Cousins play to his full potential and decide once and for all just how good he is.
2. Steph Curry
This isn't the 2015-2016 season. Curry is no longer putting up historic numbers. In fact he's not even the best player on his team. That title belongs to Kevin Durant. When you consider that he took Russell Westbrook's slot in the All-State Game starting lineup, his reputation seems even more overstated.
1. DeAndre Jordan
Jordan undeniably benefits from today's era, which notoriously lacks skilled, back-to-the-basket centers. Highlight reel dunks and blocks are fun, but Jordan is far from a complete player. With guys like Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns staying home this year, Jordan's selection is a lucky break due to his flashy style and playing in LA.
The list of All-Star snubs was a long one. Few can argue the guys who made this year's list don't belong to play, however, there are certainly many who are overhyped going into the game. This includes the three mentioned above.
