Nuggets get spurned by All-Star reserves

Despite putting up career numbers (15.1 points, .641 field goal and .755 free throw percentage) after nine seasons in the NBA, Nene fell short of being chosen to the All-Star reserves.

Statistically Nene was among the top centers in the West, he was second in scoring, fifth in rebounds (7.3), first in field goal percentage, fourth in free throws, third in assists (2.1), second in steals (1.02) and 12th in blocks (.75).

But it was nowhere close to Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin (23 points, 12.7 rebounds) or Minnesota’s Kevin Love (21. 4, 15.5).

Chauncey Billups (16.4, 5.2 assists) also was left off the All-Star roster and Ty Lawson was left off the Rookie/Sophomore All-Star game
