The 2016 NBA All-Star Game starters were announced Thursday night live on TNT, and no Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.
LeBron James, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Kyle Lowry are the Eastern Conference starters, beating out the likes of John Wall for a spot.
Kobe Bryant, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard are the five starters for the Western Conference. That means DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Davis will have to get in the All-Star game via the reserves, which will be announced next week.
Especially with regards to Boogie, that's pretty egregious.

Here's how the fan voting turned out, which had the likes of Zaza Pachulia ahead of Davis and Boogie in the fan voting.

Again, all of those former Cats can still make it, but as good as of a season as many of them were having, at least one of them deserved a starting nod.
Not all news is bad regarding former Cats in the pros. Just take Terrence Jones for example and his work in the community:
