The remarks about the All-Star voting of Miami Heat snake Adebayo (hereafter referred to as Adebayo) are controversial.
On the 26th (hereinafter Korean time), Adebayo revealed his dissatisfaction with his All-Star voting list in an interview with HEAT NATION in My Maemi. He said there are players who shouldn’t be on the All-Star fan-voted list. In addition, he added that fan voting is just fan voting, and he expressed deep regret that he was not on the list, along with confidence that he would have been selected if the managers had selected him.
Adebayo recorded 30 points and 15 rebounds in the game against the Boston Celtics on the 25th, and made a middle shot 20.4 seconds before the end of the game, leading the team to a 98-95 victory. In an interview after the game, he expressed his desire to play in the All-Star game by saying, “I have to be in Salt Lake City.” The All-Star Game will be held on February 20 at Vivint Smart Home, Utah’s home stadium in Salt Lake City. 스포츠토토
Adebayo is averaging 21.5 points and 10.2 rebounds this season in his sixth year and is having a career high season. He aims to play for the first time in three years since the 2019-2020 All-Star Game.
The All-Star Game roster consists of 50% fan vote, 25% team vote, and 25% media vote, and two guards and three forwards are selected in the West and East respectively. Afterwards, the coaches of the 30 clubs also vote for a total of 14 people, 2 guards and 3 forwards, respectively, regardless of position in the west and east. Based on this, it is composed of 24 players, and the draft of the players who ranked 1st and 2nd in the vote is carried out.
However, Adebayo is not on the list until the third tally, so it seems that he will be able to play only with the recommendation of the coach.
Of course, the reality is that players who do not play many games due to injuries and do not record an average score of 10 are in the top ranks of the vote. However, since the All-Star Game is literally where the fans pick their favorites, we need to understand that particularity.
