.. I will be ashamed, humiliated, and embarrassed of the NBA to let that happen.
Kobe said he's sitting out.
Some of those 3 will miss the cut, though. West is very deep.
I would guess that Curry/Harden or Curry/Parker are probably selected as backup guards.
Aldridge/Dwight/Dirk have to be backup forwards.
Then there are 2 wild cards and an injury replacement for Kobe, maybe for CP3 as well. 3 spots (maybe 4), and some 10 fully deserving candidates. Parker, Duncan, Davis, Lillard, Conley, Cousins, Lawson, Dragic..
