Default Jose's Reaction Regarding All-Star Snub

He's seems to be taking it in stride and will try again in the upcoming seasons.

From his blog:

I was very calm nearly the whole day but towards the end of the day with so much expectation, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. More than in the games for sure. Besides, the club had already told me that if I was chosen for the team that we would have a last minute video conference, so even my own club thought that the possibility was real.

In the end, nothing happened and I am left here to think only about the game tomorrow against Bryant and the Lakers (we hope that this year will not be his personal record). Thinking sincerely about the topic of the All Star team, I have to tell you that I am so proud of what has happened. I started the season as a substitute and it was absolutely unthinkable that as a reserve for a team like the Raptors and with an average of less than twenty minutes playing time per game, I could aspire to be in the NBA All Star team. But it has gone like this, you cannot imagine the number of supporting messages I received on my web-page and there have been many articles published in Spain, Canada, and the USA also rooting for me. The truth is that I am very proud of this and I understand that there are other players who have performed as well as or better than me to be there.

It is OK, In the upcoming years I am going to try to make it with all my power but from here I want to thank you all for supporting me.
