All-Star game

Kiwi Steven Adams snubbed again for All-Star game

The NBA announced the reserves for the East and Western Conferences on Friday, with Adams missing out to the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns, LaMarcus Aldridge and Nikola Jokic on the West bench.

The road to his first All-Star call-up was always a steep one for the OKC fan favourite against such quality big men, including Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert, who also missed selection. 

The Western Conference bench will be represented by Towns, Aldridge, Jokic, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Klay Thompson and Damian Lillard.
