The NBA announced Sunday that Kevin Garnett, the league’s top vote-getter, will officially miss the NBA All-Star Game due to his abdominal strain. In his place? Rasheed Wallace, PF/C, for the Detroit Pistons. Thus, the Celtics, the team with the NBA’s best record at 39-9, will be represented by just one player at this year’s All-Star Game.
My thoughts: I was OK with Garnett and Pierce going. I feel if you removed Garnett, the next option that makes sense would be Ray Allen, who has come on strong as of late and would be a fine choice. I understand the decision to go with Rasheed Wallace because he’s got the size to help replace the injured Garnett.
The one good thing is that Rajon Rondo will be at All-Star Weekend playing in the Rookie-Sophomore game. I expect him to one day be playing with the big boys. Only time will tell.
