De’Aaron not selected as an All-Star Reserve

The news isn't a big surprise given the Kings recent slide.

De'Aaron Fox has not made the All-Star reserves, according to the latest news from Shams Charania. Fox had been considered a candidate for the squad, but faced strong competition for the few available spots and his campaign was certainly hurt by the Kings recent losing streak.

The West is likely to to get one more All-Star selection as an injury replacement for Anthony Davis, but Fox won't be a top contender for that spot either. Devin Booker and Mike Conley are the likely favorites if another spot opens up.

Fox's case for the All-Star roster was more compelling before a 7-game losing streak in which both the team and Fox looked less than deserving of recognition.

Even if Fox had continued his high level of production, it was always unlikely he could make this year's squad. There's a lot of inertia that goes into All-Star selections, and young players have to really shine to stand out above more experienced players. Being recognized as a candidate this year is a first step towards eventually being recognized as an All-Star.

I am being baised..

but Chris Paul ? Still Chris Paul ?

This guy had been to All-Stars game for many times in his early career, and the league should let some young and new faces to join the All-Stars game……..(i.e. Fox)

With the departure of Harden to the East, this year maybe the closest for Fox to participate into All-Star game..and I am ready to purchase the All-Star Fox Jersey…

Just cannot accept it…

Fox is not close to how good Chris Paul has been. Chris should be considered an MVP.

Put Fox on Phoenix and they are 3 games worse and Paul would make the Kings at least 3 games better ! No doubt which is a All Star !

He had one great 7-game stretch. He’s been disinterested of late. And his team sucks.

He didn’t deserve a spot.

He didn’t deserve it, and talked down the all star game himself

dont know why there was any movement to care or to make him an all star this year

That’s fair. We’ve seen real flashes of what Fox can do, and I have no doubt that he’ll start making those flashes the rule rather than the exception. He can get there.

But Bagley’s still the MVP favorite, right? That is his goal, after all.

The media in Sacramento want the best of both worlds. If someone like Lilliard beats Fox for a big basket down the stretch, that’s because it’s a tough matchup for Fox. But when it comes time for All Star selections, Fox should be picked. If fans want him to be selected for the game, he needs to start meeting All Star expectations. He’s improved, but not enough, and returned to his old inconsistency.
