Karl-Anthony Towns made his All-Star Game debut Sunday night and finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds. His teammate, Jimmy Butler, didn't even play in the game. 

The reason Butler didn't play at all? He was tired. 

“Rest,” Butler said, via Pro Basketball Talk. “I have to rest. I have to rest my body up. This Timberwolves season is very, very important to me. I’ve got to make sure I’m ready to roll when I get back there.”

The fact that Butler didn't get in the game because of fatigue isn't sitting well with too many people, including NBC Sports questioning whether he should've been given a roster spot at all. 

And then there's Clippers guard Lou Williams, who many considered to be an All-Star snub, noticing that Butler didn't play. 

In fairness, Butler leads the NBA at 37.3 minutes per game and he's basically carried the Wolves on his back to a 36-25 record and fourth place in the Western Conference. 

Plus, he's just a great human being and he still made at least one fan's day at during All-Star weekend.
