The NBA All-Star game rosters were revealed on Thursday and there's at least one player in the league who does not agree with them.
Portland's Andre Miller ripped Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin to Jason Quick of the Oregonian and said he was chosen because of money.
"They are putting this guy on every ESPN highlight. Yeah, it's cool because fans want to see that, but you isolate him from his team," Miller said. "Especially, he ain't made nobody better. It's basically his rookie year, as an All-Star? LeBron James didn't make an All-Star team as a rookie."
Miller also said Griffin making his first All-Star team is a "slap in the face" to teammate LaMarcus Aldridge and that the league doesn't "appreciate the blue collar workers."
Aldridge is averaging 21.3 points and nine rebounds per game for the Blazers.
Griffin is scoring 23 points and grabbing 12.7 rebounds per game in his rookie season.
