Plenty of NBA fans believe Mike Conley has been snubbed from the All-Star Game during his career. The talented point guard made one of the best teams in the West a couple of years ago when he led the Memphis Grizzlies to the Western Conference Finals alongside Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
Conley has been one of the best players in his position for quite some time now but he's not the flashiest or most famous player of all. That could have played against him over the past couple of seasons where he seemed ready to earn the call for the ASG but it never came. Recently, he talked about this, explaining how he feels about it and revealing he's always trying to earn that honor.
"I can't lie, I still think about it. It's something in my career that I've always kind of strived for," Conley said on Adrian Wojnarowski's "The Woj Pod."
That sparked something in NBA Reddit and every fan made the case for Conley, explaining that if he played in the East, he would at least be a 4-time All-Star, while some claim it was time to vote for him to make it to the big game.
Conley has had a terrific career and he's helping the Utah Jazz compete this campaign, becoming one of the best squads in the NBA. It seems like he's missing this thing on his resume and the Reddit community will try to take him to the game this season.
