Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka was not selected as a Western Conference reserve player for the 62nd NBA All-Star game next month in Houston, but don't blame fan voting.
Whenever a worthy player fails to make the All-Star team, fault always begins with fan voting. Because if fans fail to vote for a conference's proper starting lineup, one or more deserving reserve is going to be squeezed out as a result.
