See that's just the thing.
Between 2000-2005, there was absoutely nobody with any basketball knowledge who thought to themselves that Kurt Thomas was a 2nd best center in the NBA. Nobody.
He was a role player who played on some mediocre post-Ewing squads. Nobody gave him much thought beyond that.
Which is what makes your assertion that Kurt Thomas of all the players to have ever played in this league, is the best player to have never made an All-Star team.....so mind-boggling.
There have been many horrendous selections to the All-Star game throughout the years. Jamaal Magloire, Mo Williams, BJ Armstrong, Tyrone Hill, and Jameer Nelson off the top of my head.
But none of those players were "All-Star" caliber players. And neither was Kurt Thomas at any point in his career.
