The 46-8 Warriors have four All-Stars: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. The 41-13 Spurs have one All-Star: Kawhi Leonard. San Antonio forward LaMarcus Aldridge, via Michael Lee of Yahoo Sports: “I’m older, so I’m not going to come home and be mad or anything,” Aldridge, 31, told The Vertical. “But I do think that it was wrong for Golden State to have four [All-Stars] and we’re a few games behind and only have one. It is what it is. I’m in this position and I’m going to enjoy my break and just come back fresh.” I don’t like this paradigm of assigning All-Stars. A good team might have a balanced, starless roster. A bad team might have two stars and a bad supporting cast. An All-Star appearance is an individual honor. Team success can indicate an individual’s worthiness, but it shouldn’t determine it.
