    Default Ross NOT in the rookie game... #LetRossDunk gaining steam?

    I'm actually shocked that both were left out of this game. What do y'all think?

    JV - no, because he is not flashy or a known commodity among NBA fans outside Toronto.

    Ross- shocked, high flying-3pt shooting.... this guy was made for a no D game. Only justification is if he is in the dunk contest.

    Tyler Zeller isn't flashy either.

    Valanciunas snub makes sense. Ross is a shocker.

    JV - not surprised. He's been out for a long time

    Ross - Travesty that he's not there.

    Terrence Ross still has a chance to be Bradley Beal's replacement

    Agreed with everyone. Jonas hasn't been noticed because of all the time he's missed.

    But really surprised Ross wasn't included. Then again, when you look at the list, it's tough to argue against any of them:

    Harrison Barnes (SF, Golden State Warriors)
    Bradley Beal (SG, Washington Wizards)
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (SF, Charlotte Bobcats)

    Andre Drummond (C, Detroit Pistons)

    Damian Lillard (PG, Portland Trail Blazers)

    Alexey Shved (SG, Minnesota Timberwolves)

    Dion Waiters (SG, Cleveland Cavaliers)

    Tyler Zeller (C, Cleveland Cavaliers)

    Anthony Davis (PF, New Orleans Hornets)

    Shocking. But both guys (more so Ross) will use it as motivation. JV and Euros - not being discriminant, just a fact - aren't always looked at by the league, cause it's not much of an accomplishment in the NBA. Terrence Ross growing up in the U.S. watching the best young prospects dunk, be flashy, happy on the court, and him being one of the best at those 3, isn't there. It'll be motivation, but Ross should be in the dunk contest.

    Tyler Zeller? he's a scrub. Big V should make it by default, he's better than any of the scrubs, cept for Anthony Davis of course.

    It's also because theyre playing in Toronto, Canadian team I suppose and as far as I recognized basketball is 3rd sport in Canada, so not many fans to vote? Am I right? Curious.

    It's coaches that pick the team I think. No voting.

    Talent wise, both JV and Ross are better than some of the Center's and Guards selected. The problem is, it's not talent that matters but their Rookie numbers which depends on playing time. That's the reason they didn't make it. No big deal, it's only the Rookie team. I'm quite confident both will make the All-Star team in the future.

    If its those two then i'm not surprised. They should've replaced Chuck with Dennis Scott he seems to really like "Big Valley".

    Unless you think throwing the ball out of bounds trying to rebound, airballing wide open mid range jumpshots, and blotching point blank shots in the paint are flashy.

    The players seem to be good picks, but I think Ross over Zeller is a solid argument, especially with Waiters already representing Cleveland.
