Andre Drummond replacing John Wall in All-Star game

Tobias Harris

Drummond is averaging 14.7 points and a league-leading 15.1 rebounds to go with a career-high 3.8 assists this season. He's also drastically improved his free throw shooting this season, hitting on 62.5 percent compared to just 38.6 percent a season ago. Though Drummond was right to be upset at the snub, he kind of sounded a bit immature by immediately hopping on Twitter to complain. The Heat, which own the East's fourth-best record at 29-21, will not be represented. Both Walker and Drummond have previously played in one All-Star game each. Ahead of the Cavs vs. Pistons game last night, King James couldn't hide his reaction to the news. On Tuesday, before the choice was announced, Chris Haynes tweeted that Draymond Green endorsed Brown as an All-Star, which he quote tweeted with the eyes and ear of rice emojis. But he'll be in there after being named as a replacement to the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

According to National Basketball Association rules, when an All-Star is unable to participate, the commissioner shall choose a replacement from the same conference as the player who is being replaced.

He's averaging 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game, statistics that are historically indicative of All-Star player, regardless of his status as a rookie.

Under extraordinary circumstances such as heavy snowfall, the referee can choose to divide the match time in more than two parts. Bandy actually originated in Cambridgeshire in 1813, with Scandinavia now adopting it as one of their best-loved winter sports.

Coaches still will always play favorite to those on teams with more success and sitting outside of the Eastern Conference playoff race certainly hurt Drummond's chances.

Wall has been ruled out for the next two months with a knee injury and is set to undergo a clean-up procedure on his persistently sore left knee.

With Love going down, one would imagine Ben Simmons would be the next man up given the NBA's criteria for naming replacements.
