John Wall criticizes the All-Star voting process

There is something fishy going on, at least that is what Wizards star guard John Wall thinks.

He does not agree with the voting process for the All-Star Game, nor for the All-NBA Teams.

Wall believes that he should have been selected to the All-NBA Team list, though he has not been on for the past couple of years.

This season, he averaged 19.9 points 10.2 assists, and 4.9 rebounds to compliment 49 double-doubles. The Wizards did not manage to make the playoffs although those numbers were career highs for him.

Wall plays the position with the most competition in the NBA at point guard, but he still feels he earned a spot on the All-Star team, and one of the first, second, or third All-NBA teams, but he keeps most of what he thinks to himself.

Wall received the NBA Cares Community Assist Award last week, when reporters asked him winning the award helped soften the blow for not being voted onto an All NBA Team. Wall gave a brief response but stopped short of providing any details.

I’m pissed the last two years about that. I got snaked twice.

Wall came behind a flurry of guards both last year and this season, but the list of names makes it hard to determine who should be removed if he were to be placed on it.

There are always snubs, players who feel they deserve to be recognized for their hard work. There is always a player or two that fans argue about, that they feel are underrated for what they did for their teams. Some players use it as motivation to continue to improve the following year, which is exactly what Wall should do.

Wall is only 25 years old and he still has plenty of time to make the list. From the looks of how he progressed this season, it won’t not be long before his name is on it.
