Best player never named All Star

Any others worth consideration?

Drazen Petrovic by a long

Drazen Petrovic by a long way, followed by Orlando Woolridge, Byron Scott and Lamar Odom. No way can Ellis be in that group yet

Petrovic was a hell of a player and his life was cut short at age 28. But he only had two allstar worthy seasons. Id say Rod Strickland, who had quite a few allstar worthy seasons.

Too early to nominate curry

Too early to nominate curry since this is the first year he was in the all-star discussion and not injured. he'll get in soon enough.

If the OP would have said the best active player not to make an all star team then Monta Ellis would be right there at the top with Josh Smith.

Josh Smith will never be an all star! Dude can't think basketball! He is just an athlete who can't go right and can't make b ball decision!

Ellis always has the numbers

but is always in a bad position to make it cuz he WAS in the west and there were too many guards on winning teams for him to make it and really the same has happened in milwaukee.....he SHOULD'VE made it by now but i wonder how long it'll be before he does if he ever does...

I'm not saying Derek Harper

I'm not saying Derek Harper is the best to never make it. But when istarted watching in the early 90's, I remember lots of media people saying he was the best to never make an all-star team.

Just checked the stats and

Just checked the stats and Harper had 7 straight seasons from '86 to '93 where he averaged between 16 and 20 points And about 7 assists per for some very solid Dallas maverick teams.

Marcus Camby Especially when

Marcus Camby

Especially when you consider guys like Brad Miller, Jamall Magloire and Zydrunas Ilgauskas made allstar teams during Camby's time in the league.

Monta Ellis can score, but my

Monta Ellis can score, but my god, that dude is terrible. When he's on fire, he fills it up, but on an off night he single handedly loses games. That's not all star play if you ask me. Dude never met a shot he didn't like. When you look at how much he takes off the table compared to what he brings to the table, the guy is league average. I'll probably get negged to hell and back for saying this, but I don't care. he's really fun to watch if you catch league pass when he's dialed, but on the nights where he's laying more brick than an entire Masonry union there isn't a more useless player in the entire league.Turnover prone, complete defensive liability and a loafer to boot, in the running for worst shot selection in NBA history. Might be my least favorite player in the league.

It's funny how many guys

It's funny how many guys there are who have averages of 18 6 and 4 or so for a career but are never really all start considerations, versus how many 1 time all stars with significantly less numbers but one season where they really sneak up on people..... or they play centre (Magloire here.)

basically symbolizes

basically symbolizes consistency in the NBA 14 and 7 for his 14 year career. I love Jameer Nelson, but if he was able to sneak in one year, I think Andre Miller should have been able to sneak in for 1 or 2 years at least.

Ok people can stop saying

Ok people can stop saying Steph Curry and John Wall they've been in the league about 20 minutes they will get in. I agree with whoever said Richard Jefferson, Can't believe he never made one in his prime Nets days.

Also, if we're talking players in the league right now..

How about, Jason Terry, Nene and Kevin Martin?
And it doesn't look like any of them ever will.

Andre Miller for me. Anyone

Andre Miller for me. Anyone who is 10th on the list in assists, and not made an all star game is pretty stiff. Had a season where he averaged almost 17 and 11.
