First and foremost, the NBA needs to up the rosters to 15 just like the team rosters in regular season. There are more teams now, so it seems like a necessary change. So who missed out?

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, Blazers Damian  Lillard – although I can see him taking Kobe’s slot – the Memphis duo of Zach Randolph and Mike Conley, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis, Houston’s Dwight Howard – that had to sting, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan.

In the East, Atlanta’s Kyle Korver,  Cleveland’s Kevin Love, Detroit’s Brandon Jennings, and Milwaukee’s Brandon Knight.
