Two veterans on the Jazz, Mike Conley and Rudy Gobert, have been snubbed in years past.

With the NBA regular season ready to begin on October 22, let’s take a look at 10 veterans who could potentially become an All-Star for the first time this season.

These players have all spent at least five seasons in the NBA (Someone like Devin Booker has played four, so he is not listed here). Last year’s All-Star Game had two veterans in Khris Middleton and Nikola Vucevic, who were named All-Stars for the first time.

1

Eric Bledsoe, Bucks

While his struggles in the postseason were well-documented, Bledsoe played an integral role on a team that had the best regular season record in 2018-19. He was also named to the All-Defensive First Team last season.

Mike Conley, Jazz

Amazingly, Conley does not have an All-Star appearance in his 12 NBA seasons. That could change if the floor general has Utah at or near the top of the West at the All-Star break.
