The 2018 NBA All-Star Game was fun. It was a highly competitive matchup between Team LeBron and Team Steph. It actually looked like the stars who played gave it some effort. A few All-Stars—Kevin Love, John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, and Kristaps Porzingis—couldn't play because they were hurt. One All-Star who was healthy, however, chose to sit on the bench. Jimmy Butler opted not to play. He's put in heavy minutes for the Timberwolves and has battled injuries this season, so he chose to rest Sunday. Needless to say, if you're a guy who just missed out on playing in the All-Star Game, Butler's decision—despite how logical it was—probably rubbed you the wrong way.
