Batum Thinks He Should Be An All Star

+
LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard are virtual locks to be in New Orleans playing on that Sunday. So when asked Saturday night if he feels like he deserves to be an All-Star, the small forward didn’t hesitate to give you his thoughts. "Yes, of course," Batum said to CSNNW.com. "If they have to pick one small forward behind K.D. (Kevin Durant), I think it should be me." Why? "Because of the numbers that I have and the way I play with this team," he responded. "I got two triple-doubles and I should have about five or six. And we’re 31-9, maybe the best team in the West so far. I think it’ll be tough to get three All-Stars because Damian and L.A. are going to be in it. And our coach, too. But I deserve consideration." Did we really almost draft this asshat? Glad we didnt.
