You are still an all-star, so in my mind it doesn’t really matter, but there were some concerns players feelings would get hurt.
Aldridge was the last player chosen by LeBron James’ team, and Boston Celtics power forward Al Horford was the last pick by Stephen Curry’s team, league sources told ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
“We’re all All-Stars, so, at the end of the day, we should be thankful to be here,” Aldridge told ESPN. “Picked first, picked last, it doesn’t matter. We’re all competitive, too. It won’t be the easiest thing to be picked last, but at the end of the day, you’re just happy to be here.”
Some are making the case that revealing the NBA All-Star Draft order might be a substantial enhancement for the league, but not so much for some of its players who might end up as the NBA’s version of Mr. Irrelevant, a title given to the last player drafted in the NFL.
It could open the door for players to be the brunt of last-man-standing jokes and memes created to ridicule a player’s standing in the league.
I think it would be fine to televise. Yes, jokes would fly, but no reason to be sensitive.
