The 2022 NBA All-Star game is right around the corner and fans are excited about it. Moreover, the All-Star reserves for the game have just been announced. Of course, many deserving candidates got a nod for making an appearance in the phenomenal contest, but a few players were snubbed.
But today we are not here to talk about it right now. Instead, our focus is on the players that have made it to the All-Star game. In particular, three former Minnesota Timberwolves players - Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, and Karl-Anthony Towns.
The three players will all be heading to Cleveland this year to play in the ASG. While Wiggins was selected as a starter for the game, LaVine and KAT were named reserves for one of the most exciting events of the season.
Wiggins is currently playing for the Golden State Warriors, and he has already established himself as one of the best two-way players in the league. Although his selection as a starter was a bit controversial, he still deserves all the recognition for his efforts.
On the other hand, Zach LaVine has been playing at an elite level since he joined the Chicago Bulls. Last year, LaVine became an NBA All-Star for the first time and this season will be his second selection. He has played a vital role in the rise of the Bulls as one of the top teams in the conference.
Last but not least, Karl-Anthony Towns is still donning the jersey of the Timberwolves. The team might not be doing that well in the season, he is still playing at a sensational level.
Keeping their amazing performances in mind, one might wonder if the Timberwolves made the wrong decision by breaking up the trio. If they had stayed together, the franchise could have had three All-Star players on the roster.
Moreover, they could have helped the team in not only making the postseason but also making a deep run in the playoffs too. Unfortunately, at this point, these are all but imaginary scenarios. Maybe in the future, we might see them win rings, not as teammates though.
