2012 NBA All-Star Game: Pau Gasol Snubbed For Brother Marc

The Los Angeles Lakers already have two of their best players in the NBA All-Star Game in Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum. Power forward Pau Gasol was left out, making you wonder if they'll were going to be picked as an All-Star Reserve.

Turns out he wasn't. Pau was snubbed in favor of his brother Marc, who was announced a few minutes ago on the TNT All-Star Reserves selection show. Marc has been the lynchpin of a solid Memphis Grizzlies team, and he's been arguably more valuable to Memphis's success than Pau to LA. Plus this season, it would've been hard to believe the Lakers were deserving of having three All-Stars considering their fairly average record.

The All-Star Game will take place in Orlando on Sunday, February 26th on TNT. Gasol has made four All-Star games in his NBA career.
