Report: Pierce, Rondo Make All-Star Team; Full Rosters Out

 

From the department of scoops that aren’t really scoops: A. Sherrod Blakely reports Pierce and Rondo will be named All-Star reserves tonight.

Blakely also reports that Derrick Rose and Joe Johnson will be on the team.

Nothing shocking. I had Pierce, Rajon and Johnson on the CelticsHub All-Stars, and the final spot came down to Rose and David Lee.

It will be interesting to see if any of these leaked reports turned out to be wrong.

Update: Yahoo!’s dynamic duo of Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears have the full list here. Both Pierce and Rondo have indeed made the list. The coaches nailed the East, with Rose over Lee the only difference between my roster and the real one, and given Rose’s recent play, that’s a fine choice. This will be Pierce’s 8th All-Star selection, and his third straight.

I’ve got a beef with the selection of Pau Gasol in the West, only because he has missed 17 of LA’s 46 games. I’d have selected Chris Kaman over Pau. Gasol is obviously the better player—one of the league’s 10 best, probably—but my philosophy is to reward the guys who have had the most positive impact over the first 40-plus games of the season. Missing 17 of those games matters.

Then again, this s all just a silly showcase game anyway, right?

Congrats Paul and Rajon.

    Derrick Rose has no business on that team. So overrated.

    I can’t argue with the reserves that made it this year, except like you said Pau,

    I’m just esctatic for Rondo though.

    I assume then you have a problem with the fans voting in Garnett as well?

    @Jonathan: yes, and I’ve written that. He didn’t make my personal All-Star team, and he doesn’t deserve to be in the game.

    I figured you had, couldn’t find the post way back when the starters were announced. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on what to do with the All-Star game/weekend/voting in general going forward. Personally, I’d like to see the NBA adopt a USA vs. World format. Maybe a topic to save for a post on All-Star weekend.

    The east coaches hardly nailed it if Josh Smith isn’t an all-star. This will be a disgraceful omission. At least Rondo and Wallace both made it and Ray Allen didn’t.

    A reason to actually watch the All-Star Game this year instead of just the other events (which are actually more fun to watch).
