Of course it's not. It's incredibly awesome, and now I have your attention. After his unanimously brilliant rookie season, I was drinking the Damian Kool Aid til I was peeing straight fruit punch, and while I thought Damian could certainly be an All Star this year, I thought the West's comically deep supply of quality point guards would prove too much for our PGOTF. When the Blazers started winning game after game and other All Star locks fell to injury, I grew more and more excitable at the prospect of the Blazers having two representatives in New Orleans. When the NBA officially announced him as a reserve, I did a little jig and hoisted 100 step back threes in celebration (0% fg).
But watching him go through this recent slump has got me thinking much more about what if he didn't make the team? He would certainly be considered the biggest snub, only slightly less offensive than Curry's exclusion last year. And everyone remembers how Steph exploded all over the rest of the league after the All Star break.
So my question to you Blazer Edgers is this: Can you imagine the chip Damian would have on his shoulder for the rest of the season if he had been snubbed? He has routinely stated how much the doubt he received for being a Weber State product fuels his desire to annihilate every mere mortal that dares guard him. This would be just one more cry from the doubters for Damian to silence before stonewalling the camera as if him silencing them was as inevitable as Raymond Felton's answer when asked if he'd like to Supersize his order. Can you imagine the four bar Friday he would have released the day after the picks came out? I’m not even sure if I want to for fear of my brain wrinkling from the thought of Damian going in on four bars like he’s 90s DMX.
So in conclusion, it’s super sick that Damian is in the All Star Game, and although I can’t imagine anything more satisfying than a snubbed Damian fulfilling his nickname "The Omen" and showing the West exactly what kind of apocalypse the Anti Christ can and will rain down upon them, either way Dame is gonna give it ya. And that’s enough for me.
