-   FIBA 2014 WORLD CUP PODCAST ON NBA.COM EPISODE 172 - JOHN DIMOPOULOS

 

-  THIS IS NOT THE FIRST SNUB FOR GORAN DRAGIC FOR NBA ALL-STAR GAME

Goran Dragic making an NBA All-Star game is probably not ever going to happen for the

31 year old PG from Slovenia, as again this year the Miami Heat PG who has led his club to a

27-20 record in the Eastern Conference, was SNUBBED for the NBA 2018 All-Star game.

 

The SNUB this year is not as bad as other years where Dragic stats were much better than

Damian Lillard in 2014, but the Washington Wizards got two backcourt spots as reserves with

Bradley Beal scoring 23.6 PPG and shooting .459 on FG's, but John Wall shooting just .417 on

FG's is not a great shooting touch for a team in the Wizards with a 26-21 record to grab two

reserve backcourt spots on the East.   Goran Dragic is a career .472 FG percentage shooter in

the NBA and this year he is at just .437 on FG scoring 17.3 PPG compared to John Wall at

19.3 PPG and just .417 FG and just a .432 FG shooter for his career, but just as the NBA

DID NOT hype up Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, who did not play NCAA ball in the USA and

came straight from Euro pro leagues like Dragic did, the NBA coaches that voted for John Wall as

a reserve go with what they know best, USA born players that they have watched since AAU days

and NCAA days, so if the stats are close or in the case of Dragic in 2014 not close, the NBA coaches

vote for the Non Euro player, just like the majority of the NBA Media did last year for NBA Rookie

of the Year, picking NCAA playing Malcolm Brogdan instead of Non NCAA playing Dario Saric.

 

Kristaps Porzingis is the only other Euro to make the 2018 NBA All-Star game besides Giannis

Antetekounmpo who is a starter on the East squad, but again this is not a 2014 type of dominant

Goran Dragic with stats, but the fact that Miami is 27-20 and Washington is 26-21, NO WAY should

the Wizards have both reserve spots of the East squad, Goran Dragic should get his proper Respect,

that he did not get in past All-Star years and a .417 FG shooting John Wall making the team is a

TOTAL JOKE, but the Euros in the NBA are used to the DISRESPECT.
