Even as a fan, I have to say he didn't deserve it. His play in January was brutal and his team struggled mightily. Lillards defense was also bad all year. Dragic on Phoenix was a much better choice even though I expect the suns to fold at some point. Conley was also a better choice for a more complete all around game. I really don't think lillard will see many more all star games after this one unless guys get hurt. Teams have figured him and the blazers out sadly.

Despite the dreary outlook of the post above me, I think Lillard is a solid offensive player. Other solid offensive players who don't play defense and whose teams have good records at the break make the all-star team every year. Not a big surprise.

I also don't see it as a surprise, though I think that Dragic deserves it more, we will see what will happen until the weekend.
Dragic is definitely more deserving, but Lillard still isn't a huge surprise.

Like I said I don't see it as a surprise at all. Now I'm just wondering who will the comm. choose instead Kobe and potentially CP. I hope Dragic, but I'm afraid that Anthony Davis has better chances as a New Orleans player where the AS is held.

I try to be fair.... Lillard making it is a disgrace to the west.

With that said la not starting is a bigger disgrace so guess that balances out.

Better pgs then lillard..... Parker Westbrook Paul dragic Lawson curry Conley and maybe Rubio

Weird. He has definitely been better than Tony Parker who made it so I don't see the complaint

For a Blazers fan, you sure do seem to hate your team and its players.

Lillard has had a very good year. I think he was deserving of making the team.

When did everyone stop loving Damian Lillard? I think his all star bid is totally fine. Maybe there's a guy or two that could have been in his place (Dragic, Davis) but it's pretty close either way.

he is literally on pace to be the worst shooter in NBA history. i don't care if he can walk across water any time you are the worst anything in nba history you do not deserve to be in the ASG.

And Rubio isn't...
Rubio is shooting 36.9 percent, and through three partial seasons and 3,700 minutes, he’s a career 36 percent shooter
....
Rubio is on pace to be the worst shooter in the modern history of the NBA. Since the inception of the league, 61 total players have logged at least 5,000 career minutes and finished with a field goal mark of 38 percent or worse. Fifty-nine of those guys began their careers in 1965 or earlier; the other two are Eddie Griffin and Daequan Cook, who did not make it far beyond the 5,000-minute threshold.

I'm saying he's not in the ASG. You said he doesn't deserve to be, which I agree with. That's why he isn't. I know he's a terrible shooter.
right. I was responding to mixums allegation that Rubio deserved in over lillard
