Williams took to Twitter and reacted to the list of reserves shortly after they were revealed.
When the @ESPNNBA Twitter account asked, “Was Lou Williams referring to being snubbed from the All-Star Game?” with a screenshot of his original tweet, Williams quoted the tweet and wrote, “Damn right.”
Williams was tied for 15th in league scoring heading into Tuesday’s action, averaging 23.3 points per game, while also ranking ninth in points per 48 minutes. He has been on fire in his past 16 contests, at least offensively, averaging 29.6 points per game during that stretch.
Many of Williams’s peers also viewed his omission as a snub and showed support on social media.
The 2015 NBA Sixth Man of the Year seemingly wasn’t the only player disappointed by not being named a reserve.
Booker is tied with Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan for eighth in the league in scoring.
