With the numbers Al Jefferson’s put up this season (22.6 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 1.6 bpg) and a 9-2 (!!!) record in January, Big Al certainly makes a big All-Star case. But will he get it? Most think Jefferson will get snubbed, as Shaq-ovic is likely to get the backup nod instead.
Still, the Wolves are campaigning for their center with an All-Star package entitled, “Big Al’s Road Trip: Navigating His Way to Phoenix.” The package, sent to all 30 coaches, included a real GPS that plays video highlights. You have to hand it to the Wolves for creativity, but will it be enough to oust the Big Fella with All-Star being in Phoenix?
