Philadelphia 76ers star center Joel Embiid was not voted into the 2023 All-Star game as an Eastern Conference starter, it was announced on TNT on Thursday night:

Embiid is second in the NBA in scoring at 33.4 points per game, less than one point behind Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic for the league lead. He’s also pulling down 9.8 rebounds and dishing 4.1 assists per game. Embiid is shooting nearly 57 percent on twos and 35 percent on threes this season. The only area of his game that has objectively regressed is turnovers, a category in which he’s exhibited the highest per game mark since his age-23 season.

Embiid will surely be selected to the All-Star game as a reserve. But, credentialed by yet another battle for the league scoring title and his third consecutive run at MVP, it’s undoubtedly disappointing to Embiid and his fans that he was not voted into the starting lineup for the Eastern Conference.
