Arron Afflalo in All-Star Game

Cohen’s Analysis: Afflalo’s rise as an elite player is one of the best storylines in the NBA these days. His efficiency and complete offensive arsenal have been remarkably impressive.

While Dwyane Wade will be voted in as a starter by the fans, Afflalo deserves to be the next shooting guard in line in the East for an All-Star spot. He has been more reliable and consistent than the rest of his counterparts, which include Joe Johnson, DeMar DeRozan, Bradley Beal and OJ Mayo.

Some may argue that the Magic’s record could deny Afflalo from earning his first All-Star appearance, but aside from the Pacers and Heat, no team in the East has a noteworthy number of wins.
