News – UK – Raptors will be without an All-Star for the first time since 2013


The Toronto Raptors won’t have an All-Star Representative for the first time since 2013, despite being fifth at the Eastern Conference

The 2021 All-Star Reserves leaked Tuesday, and Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry missed the cut VanVleet had the best chances of being nominated as it had a franchise record of 54 points earlier this season A dismal 2-8 start to the season when the franchise was temporarily moved to Tampa Bay, however, appeared to have disqualified one of the Raptors

Sources: 2021 NBA All-Star Reserves: West: Chris Paul, Paul George, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Zion Williamson, Anthony Davis East: James Harden, Julius Randle, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Zach LaVine , Ben Simmons, Nikola Vucevic

Another factor affecting the Raptors’ candidacies is that there is no one-to-one player to stand out from the crowd. VanVleet and Siakam lead the team on 20 points each, while Lowry and Norman Powell each averaged 17 points achieve per game The Raptors win as a group, whereby it is not one player that determines the success of the team, which leads to overall success at team level, but rather no large boxscore numbers that ensure individual recognition, such as the All-Star nomination

The Raptors produced four All-Stars from 2014, with DeMar DeRozan receiving the first of four nods to Lowry representing Toronto from 2015 to 2020, and his six-year run has now been suspended, with Lowry suffering various minor injuries that led to it that he missed the time Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam were also named starters in 2019 and 2020 Both Dwane Casey and Nick Nurse coached the team
