Garnett, Rondo Voted All-Star Starters


Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett have been voted All-Star starters. KG didn’t make the team last season but will suit up next month for the 15th time in his career. For Rondo, it’s his fourth straight all-star appearance. They’ll be joined in the Eastern Conference’s starting lineup by three of their most heated rivals: LeBron James and Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat and Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks.

Paul Pierce remains a strong candidate to be selected as an all-star reserve when the coaches announce their choices next Thursday night.

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin will start for the Western Conference.

This year’s All-Star Game is set for February 17th in Houston.

    Ronod an the same team with Wade? KG on the same team with Melo? … we'll, I hope they pass to each other a lot so as to gloss over any ill-will.

    Frankly, I have no special desire to see KG play yet another game he doesn't need to play. Play him a little and rest the guy please. The all star weekend is for resting the Celtic's three main guys – PP, RR, KG….not for playing them.

      I agree. For KG as a player it's great to still get that leaguewide recognition. But for the team, and maybe even himself, I think he should have recharged at home. Even if he's only playing like 10 min, there's not much relaxing there. Remember how he came back after the break last year?

    I'm glad they made the team. The deserve to be there.

    I know I'll catch hell for this, but, realistically, neither really deserve to be a starter.

    Irving should start over Rondo, and Lopez or Chandler over KG. Those guys are playing at a much higher level than our guys now.
