Pierce Makes East All-Star Team, Allen Snubbed

Paul Pierce will join Kevin Garnett on the East’s team in the NBA All-Star Game. Celtics guards Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo were under consideration for spots, but both were snubbed as the East guards have been very good this year.

Orlando leads the East with three all-stars in Dwight Howard, forward Rashard Lewis, and guard Jameer Nelson. Cavaliers guard Mo Williams was snubbed in favor of New Jersey’s Devin Harris, which was a tough choice for coaches to make.

Here’s the full list for both squads:

East West
G Dwayne Wade, MIA G Chris Paul, NO
G Allen Iverson, DET G Kobe Bryant, LA
F LeBron James, CLE F Tim Duncan, SA
F Kevin Garnett, BOS F Amare Stoudemire, PHO
C Dwight Howard, ORL C Yao Ming, HOU
—— ——
G Jameer Nelson, ORL G Chauncey Billups, DEN
G Joe Johnson, ATL G Tony Parker, SA
G Devin Harris, NJ G Brandon Roy, POR
F Paul Pierce, BOS F Dirk Nowitzki, DAL
F Danny Granger, IND F David West, NO
F Rashard Lewis, ORL F Pau Gasol, LA
F/C, Chris Bosh, TOR C Shaquille O’Neal, PHO

  1. Jameer deserves it!

  2. Oh I definitely agree. I’d prefer that Iverson didn’t make it and Ray Ray get in. Otherwise, I’m pretty satisfied with the rest.

    ps- Where is Al Jefferson!?
