The NBA announced the reserves for the 2010 All-Star Game and not surprisingly no Sixers will be on the team. The East starters will be joined by Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce of the Celtics, Al Horford of the Atlanta Hawks in the front court. The guards are Celtics Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen plus the Atlanta Hawks' Joe Johnson.â†µ
The East All-Stars' starting five includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Amar'e Stoudemire, Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard.â†µ
The west starters are Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Yao Ming. Yes, Yao Ming who is out for the season... the fact that half the country of China votes for him pretty much ensures that he'll be a a starter as long as he's on the ballot. One additional player from the West will be named to the team in his place.â†µ
The reserves are Blake Griffin, Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Deron Williams and Russell Westbrook.
