Jaylen Brown was snubbed from being named an All-Star yet again as LaMelo Ball was picked as Kevin Durant’s injury replacement.
With Kevin Durant getting injured and missing the All-Star game for a 2nd consecutive year, several people speculated Jaylen Brown to be one of the frontrunners to be picked as KD’s replacement. However, despite averaging a solid 23.9/6.5/3, Brown was not selected for his 2nd All-Star game.
Instead, Charlotte Hornets’ LaMelo Ball will be suiting up for the prestigious event, making him the youngest All-Star since LeBron James in 2005. The former ROTY has been putting up 19.5/7.1/7.5 with the Hornets having a worse record than the Cs.

Brown seemed to have taken this snub quite personally. Without talking a lot about it, JB took it to his Twitter with a one-word reaction.

Brown should definitely use this as motivation and help turn things around for the Celtics in the second half of this season.
