Rondo, Pierce Named NBA All-Stars

Joining starter Kevin Garnett at the NBA All-Star Game will be point guard Rajon Rondo and forward Paul Pierce. For Pierce, it’s his eighth All-Star selection without ever getting voted onto the team by fans. Meanwhile, it’s the first All-Star appearance for Rondo, and it’s well-deserved.

Rondo, who’s All-Star candidacy was endorsed by Sports of Boston, has had a stellar season, proving to be one of the best top young point guards in the NBA. He’s averaging career bests with 14.2 points, 9.7 assists, and an NBA-best 2.54 steals per game.

Pierce has been as steady as usual, averaging a team-high 19.8 points per game, to go with 4.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists. He wants to participate in the three-point shooting contest, and may get his chance. This season, he’s second best in the NBA at three-point efficiency, knocking down 47% of his downtown looks.

Did Ray Allen deserve to make it? Should Garnett even be there? Sound off below!
