The 2024 NBA All-Star Game is just a few weeks away, and the league recently revealed the starters for each conference.
Despite being one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers do not have a single player in the 2024 Eastern Conference starters.
Many believe that Donovan Mitchell was snubbed from the honor, and most Cavaliers players support the notion.
Speaking of which, Jarrett Allen was recently asked about his reaction to Mitchell missing out on becoming a starter for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game.
Allen had a hilarious reaction to the question as he wasn’t even aware of the starters list being released, as revealed via Chris Fedor on Twitter.
“Uhhhhhh, this is my live reaction. I didn’t know it came out. I don’t know who the starters are. I couldn’t tell ya,” Allen said.

As revealed in the above-attached tweet, Allen had no idea that Mitchell missed out on becoming a starter in the game.
Considering Allen is rarely seen on social media platforms, it’s no surprise that he wasn’t aware of the news.
As for Mitchell, he has averaged 27.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game for the Cavaliers in 34 appearances this season.
Thanks to Mitchell’s tremendous performance, the Cavaliers are currently the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 27-16 record in the 2023-24 NBA season.
While Mitchell may have missed out on receiving the nod as a starter, there is no doubt that he will be named on the reserves for the Eastern Conference in the game.
So far, Mitchell has four NBA All-Star Game selections under his belt.
