How Did Joe Johnson Make The NBA All Star Team Over Kyle Lowry?
Somebody explain this to me and try your hardest for it to make sense.
How in the world did Joe Johnson make the East All Star team over Kyle Lowry?
No answers from anyone but Nets fans? Hell, even they don’t know. Let’s look at the numbers…
Kyle Lowry- 16.8 points per game, 7.6 assists per game and 4.3 rebounds per game.
Joe Johnson- 15.7 points per game, 2.8 assists per game and 3.4 rebounds per game.
Looks like a “duh” to me.
Oh, to make matters worse, Toronto leads the Nets by three games in the Atlantic division.
Maybe it is because Lowry plays in Toronto. Maybe it’s based on who has the bigger contract (Joe Johnson, by far). I honestly don’t get it.
To be clear, Lowry is currently the best point guard in the Eastern Conference with Rajon Rondo trying to round back into basketball shape, Derrick Rose on the shelf and John Wall trailing by the smallest of margins. I’m not sure how Lowry gets snubbed in this situation.
My guess is that Joe Johnson is going to stink up the court on All Star Weekend and Lowry (along with Lance Stephenson, who has been playing out of his mind) will take vengeance on everyone they step on the court with for the rest of the season. Steph Curry did it last year and now look at him.
