Should Cleveland Cavaliers Have More Players On All-Star Roster?
The 2014 NBA All-Star rosters were announced recently, and Cleveland Cavaliers‘ Kyrie Irving was the only Cavs player selected. Although the Cavaliers have had a struggling season, should some of their other young stars have been selected?
Who could else could have been selected, you ask? The Cavaliers have the experienced Anderson Varejao, who has arguably had one of his best ever seasons thus far, and youngsters like Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson have been impressive too. Sadly for Varejao, he is getting a bit too old and there are far better players that deserved the selection more than him. With this in mind, it’s unlikely he will ever be selected in the future.
Although Waiters and Thompson are important components of the Cavaliers’ roster, that’s as far as it goes. The Cavaliers value this pairing a lot more than the rest of the NBA does. They are both young enough that they could get there in time. Both offer a lot to their team, and the team would be struggling on a larger scale without them, which shows their importance.
It’s easy for fans to want more of their favorite team’s players to be selected for the All-Star team, but sadly the only Cavalier that is 100 percent deserving of an All-Star selection is their young point guard Irving. Looking at the positive side, they have one All-Star and a great young core that could possibly push for a selection in the next few years. That can’t be a bad omen for the team. Maybe next year, their young trio can make the All-Star game together.
