Kevin Durant has only played in 22 games so far this season due to a couple injuries, but he was still voted to the NBA All-Star game, even as a starter. After it was announced that KD would be a starter, social media exploded, discussing whether or not KD should have been voted to the All-Star game over snubs like Damian Lillard and Demarcus Cousins, who was later chosen to replace Kobe Bryant.
KD is a different kind of player. I don't know many who would offer a challenge like this but I actually think this is a great idea. Allowing players who were on the brink of making the All-Star game, challenge someone who did make it for their roster spot, I think would make for good TV. It could be an added event to All-Star weekend, plus end the debate of who was snubbed and who didn't deserve to be in.
