NBA just has 12 All Stars per conference, no minimum or maximum per team.
Who deserves to be kicked out for him?
Against those he directly competed against for a G or wild card spot:
Donovan Mitchell (though I accept him bc his team is killing it) and he's their best player)
Brandon Ingram (the most egregious...they used to say Book couldn't make it bc his team doesn't win, so why are Ingram and Trae Young here?)
None of these guys have the combination of efficiency, volume, and impact on team performance he has. Lillard is the closest.
Of the whole thing:
He's better than anyone on the EC reserves and all the starters minus Giannis and Embiid.
He's better than the entire EC bench.
He's better than the entire WC bench minus Jokic.
People might not be tuned into what he's doing this year, but the coaches have no excuse.
