Spurs Guard Stats for All-Star Voting

I understand the apathy among San Antonio Spurs fans regarding NBA All-Star voting, especially during the 2020-21 NBA season In The Time of COVID-19. All-Star voting is & always has been a popularity contest, regarding the starting lineups being chosen by the fans (50%), the media (25%) & players (25%). If Spurs players have any chance of making it in, that's usually up to the Western Conference coach who chooses the reserves. Sadly now, with Eastern & Western conference vote leaders becoming Team Captains in 2018, the lineups are even More of a popularity contest.

With regards to Spurs recently making the All-Star team, LaMarcus Aldridge was a reserve choice in 2018 & 2019. DeMar DeRozan's last appearance was when he was with the Toronto Raptors in 2018, & he started. With All-Star voting ending at 11:59 PM EST (& assuming you have power &/or a charged laptop, tablet or smartphone), there's still time left. I wanted to give you stats to use in making your decision (even though Everyone depends on emotions & popularity to vote anyway). This fanpost is for players the NBA classified as Guards. Warning: If any Spurs Actually Make it, starting 5 or reserve, Injuries, COVID-19 protocols & being in the NBA G League bubble will cause Commissioner Adam Silver to select a replacement... popularity contest, Indeed!
