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.
