Ray Allen Named to East’s All Star Team

Ray Allen was named to the Eastern Conference All Star team Thursday in place of injured Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson. Ray should have been on the team in the first place, but has been rightfully put on for the second year in a row to replace an injured player.

Ray’s numbers are all up this year except his scoring which is slightly down three points from his career numbers. Currently Ray is averaging 18.1 points per game, shooting 49.7% from the field, 41% from beyond the three point line, and 91% at the charity stripe.

Maybe the game-winning shot in Philadelphia the other night convinced the NBA that Ray should be the replacement here.  Or, perhaps it was the 28 points he put up in last year’s All Star game to lead all scorers. He rightfully deserved the MVP award over Lebron James in that game, by the way.

Whatever the decision was, Ray will get to join teammates Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Phoenix during the All-Star festivities next week.
