NBA players react on social media to All-Star starters

The starters for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game in Toronto were announced Thursday night, with Kobe Bryant making it, Draymond Green missing out, Kyle Lowry edging Kyrie Irving, and Zaza Pachulia -- he's a quality starting big man for the Dallas Mavericks, in case you were wondering -- getting more votes than Green but missing a starting slot by about 14,000 votes.

Those who got in, naturally, were quite excited:

Thank you to everyone who voted! Know we will have some more good news next week #DG23 #KT11 #dubnation

Non-All-Stars had mixed reactions:

Green's mom, Mary Babers-Green, had some things to say, causing Green to respond.

And then there was this:

The 2016 All-Star Game will held Feb. 14 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. All-Star Game reserves, which are chosen by the league's coaches, will be revealed Jan. 28; it's a safe bet Green, who has helped lead the Golden State Warriors to a 39-4 record, will get a slot.
