The 2011 NBA Development League All-Star selections were announced yesterday. Twenty players were selected, and 13 of the D-League’s 16 teams are represented. As always, a case can be made for a few players who did not make the cut. In this week’s poll, we’re taking a bit of a different angle on the All-Star snub. Rather than focusing on individual snubs, this week’s poll asks which team got snubbed by virtue of not having a single player selected as an All-Star. Considering the fact that league worst Sioux Falls (3-21) had two All-Stars, these three teams are surely disappointed not to have a participant in the All-Star Game.
So cast your vote below for the team that was most deserving of an All-Star.

Last week’s poll question asked, Which Recent Call-Up is Most Deserving of a Second 10-Day Contract? The results were close, but Garrett Temple of the Erie BayHawks/Milwaukee Bucks won the poll with 38 percent of the vote. Temple, who was just named as an East Conference D-League All-Star, has played in six games for Milwaukee, averaging 11.7 minutes per game. His best performance came in his Bucks debut Jan. 26 when he scored 8 points on 3-5 shooting (2-3 from 3), grabbed 3 rebounds and dished out 3 assists in 18 minutes in a game the Bucks beat the Hawks 98-90.
Mustafa Shakur of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers/Washington Wizards finished second with 29 percent of the vote. The Wizards did not offer Shakur a second 10-day contract on Tuesday, but Michael Lee of the Washington Post says “they intend on bringing him back later in the week after his right ankle recovers.”
Trey Johnson of the Bakersfield Jam/Toronto Raptors finished third with 26 percent of the vote. And Chris Johnson of the Dakota Wizards/Portland Trailblazers finished fourth with just six percent of the vote. A total of 34 votes were cast.
