Wesley Matthews Upset He’s Not on the NBA All-Star Ballot

by November 19, 2013

Through eleven games, Blazers guard Wes Matthews is shooting a blistering 55.4% from the field, 52.6% from beyond the arc, putting up 16 points and ripping down 5.2 boards a night. He can’t understand why those numbers didn’t earn him a spot on the All-Star ballot. Per CSNNW: “Portland only had three players on the ballot in Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum. When asked about being left off the ballot, (Matthews) responded witth ‘It’s ridiculous.’ What did you think you first got the word? ‘I just laughed. It’s ridiculous,’ Matthews said. ‘You know what, I may never get my dues, but it’s not going to stop me from doing me.’ […] ‘I’m going to kill everything,’ he said. ‘The Game got this mixed tape out titled Operation Kill Everything. That’s all I’m going to do. Gotta take respect.'”
