Russell Westbrook didn’t get the nod as an All-Star starter, thanks to fan votes, triggering a mini-uproar on Twitter. The West’s starting backcourt turned out to be Steph Curry and James Harden, whose teams are currently the first and third seeds in the conference, respectively, so it’s hard to complain.
Well, at least former NBA All-Star Baron Davis knew why Westbrook isn’t starting:
Just saw @russwest44 not starting in the Allstar game …. this Russian hackers shit is getting out of control.

Is Zaza Pachulia Russian? Oh yeah, he’s from Georgia so he may not be involved in all of this.
