The 2018 Western Conference All-Star reserves were announced Tuesday and there was one glaring omission for Valley sports fans.
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker.
Despite an impressive first half of the season, the Suns star won't be playing in this year's NBA All-Star game.
Soon after the reserves were unveiled, Booker took to Twitter to share what he thought of his absence from the selections.
"Opinions over statistics," the tweet read.
If you're going by the numbers, you can certainly make a case for Booker to be on the All-Star squad
This season, Booker is eighth in the league in scoring and is averaging career highs in points (25.0), rebounds (4.5), assists (4.7), shooting percentage (43.7) and 3-point shooting percentage (38.2).
The 21-year-old is also one of only three players to average at least 25 points per game while shooting at least 38 percent from 3-point range and 43 percent from the field. Houston’s James Harden and Golden State’s Kevin Durant are the others, some pretty impressive company.
Even though Booker won't be in the game, he does plan to participate in the three-point contest, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
