Houston Rockets GM disgusted by Harden/Howard snub

Published Add your comment

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has taken to Twitter to complain about the selection process for next month's NBA All-Star game.

Morey is not happy with the fact that Houston Rockets duo James Harden and Dwight Howard did not make the Western Conference's starting line-up for the prestigious match which takes place at the New Orleans Centre on February 16.

Both Harden and Howard did not ascertain enough votes to start the game, which appears to have irked Morey.

Morey has subsequently questioned the voting process.

The American sports executive tweeted:

"If Kobe out then @JHarden13 should start or, since positions don't matter, @KDTrey5 should be SG & @DwightHoward starts w/next highest votes

"NBA all star voting process set up well for Iowa high school girls basketball. Offense only & only guards and forwards."

Both Harden and Howard are likely to be on the bench for the Western Conference side against a side made up of players from the Eastern Conference.

The two respective line ups are as follows:

Eastern Conference:

• Carmelo Anthony, New York
• Paul George, Indiana
• Kyrie Irving, Cleveland
• LeBron James, Miami
• Dwyane Wade, Miami

Western Conference:

• Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers
• Stephen Curry, Golden State
• Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City
• Blake Griffin, L.A. Clippers
• Kevin Love, Minnesota
