Greg and Dave are joined by the Fanning the Flames hosts, Paul and Justin, to recap the All-Star reserve voting that failed to include Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker.

Who’s fault is it that the coaches didn’t put Booker in? The voting format? The franchise Booker plays for, that hasn’t won more than 24 games in half a decade? Deandre Ayton’s 25-game suspension that certainly cost the team some wins?

For those of you looking for HOW this happened, in a literal sense, we also share how the vote actually went down, who does and doesn’t care about the ‘popularity contest’, and a really good suggestion for improving the voting a little bit more.

We were also joined by a couple hundred of you and took your questions and shared your thoughts with the world as well.
