NBA All Star Reserves Named: Who Made The Cut?

The NBA announced its All Star Reserves last night, and fans in NY are about as happy as they used to be when MJ and the Bulls used to come to the Garden. David Lee, one of the lone bright spots for the lowly Knicks, was snubbed by the coaches selection committee. The list of guys who made the team are as follows:

Deron Williams- Jazz
Brandon Roy- Blazers
Kevin Durant- Thunder
Dirk Nowitski- Mavs
Chris Paul- Hornets
Zach Randolph- Grizzlies
Pau Gasol- Lakers

Rajon Rondo- Celtics
Gerald Wallace- Bobcats
Joe Johnson- Hawks
Chris Bosh- Raptors
Paul Pierce- Celtics
Derrick Rose- Bulls
Al Horford- Hawks

The Lee snub seems to be a re-occurring event, as this time last year Lee also was left off the team. The Knicks constant under achieving and the teams strategy of keeping shitty players on their roster to lower payroll and score a high profile free agent (Lebron, Wade, Bosh) may have lead the coaches to chose Horford, who averages less points and boards then Lee. Nowitski will be playing on his home court (technically up the street at Cowboy Stadium) and will probably put on a show. Even though Ze German is not starting, he is my pick for MVP... The All Star Game airs Sunday Feb. 14, 2010 on TNT.
