I have to say that I'm extremely frustrated and growing more and more perturbed with the selection committee. Redick deserves to be in the contest and should have been in it for the past few years, but especially this season, which has been the best of his career.
Instead, Redick will have to watch Ryan Anderson (New Orleans Hornets), Matt Bonner (San Antonio Spurs), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers) and Steve Novak (New York Knicks) compete, despite the fact that he has made 39.9% of his attempts from behind the arc this season, better than Anderson (39.7%) and George (38.7%). In addition, he has knocked down 113 treys, more than George (108), Novak (91), Irving (78) and Bonner (32). Add to that the fact that Novak and Bonner are nothing more than role players, whereas Redick is one of Orlando's top options, and it makes his omission even more mind-boggling.
Bad call, NBA. Very bad call.
