CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - There’s still hope for the Cleveland Cavaliers if the host team wants to send a player, or players, to the 2022 NBA All-Star rosters.

The NBA All-Star starting lineups do not include any players from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but many believe guard Darius Garland is deserving of a spot for the annual league showcase.

Garland even caught the attention of a former presidential candidate.

Take a look at some of the plays Garland has been involved with during the Cavaliers’ 31-win season so far:

Garland is currently leading the Cavaliers in both points per game and assists per game. Both him and teammate Jarrett Allen will look to be added as reserves when they are announced on Feb. 3.

The 2022 NBA All-Star weekend begins Feb. 18 in Cleveland, concluding with the game on Sunday, Feb. 20.
