Since the 2008-9 season, the Detroit Pistons have only had three players make the All-Star team.
Allen Iverson, who made it that season, was more of a legacy pick chosen by the fans. Andre Drummond made it twice and the last Pistons' All-Star was Blake Griffin, who made it in 2018-19 just before his knee exploded.
It's been an embarrassing All-Star drought since then for the Pistons, which is the primary reason they haven't been good in that time. You need star players to win and Detroit hasn't had them.
Some thought that drought would end this season with Cade Cunningham, who has put up numbers that are compelling enough to make an argument. His 22.4 points, 7.5 assists and four rebounds per game are comparable to Paolo Banchero's 23 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Both players have mediocre shooting splits, but unlike Cade, Paolo is on a team that is likely headed to the playoffs, while Cunningham is on the worst team in the league.
Cade Cunningham has been good for the Detroit Pistons, but wasn't an All-Star snub
When you look at the 2024 NBA All-Star team rosters, it's hard to argue that anyone was "snubbed" as there is an immense amount of talent in the NBA and all the players who were selected are deserving of the honor.
I don't particularly like the word snubbed, but if we have to use it, I don't think Cade Cunningham was snubbed. He'll make All-Star teams eventually, but it's difficult to reward a guy on a team that has only won six games and suffered a 28-game losing streak.
There were three players whose absence from the All-Star roster did surprise me, but none of them were Detroit Pistons.
Here are the "snubs" in no particular order.
