We all know the reserves are the part of the all-star team that's picked using the most logic, although fans did a pretty good job picking the best players to start, other than with Kevin Garnett and Blake Griffin. The starting line-ups are set. In the West are are Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard. In the east are Rajon Rondo, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony LeBron James and Kevin Garnett.
Coaches now vote for seven players in their respective conference, except for their own team's players. The results come out Thursday. Who should the reserves be?
Here are my selections:
West: Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker, Stephen Curry, James Harden, David Lee (is playing better than Griffin), Tim Duncan (should start over Griffin) and Zach Randolph (is playing better than Blake Griffin).
East: Kyrie Irving, Jrue Holiday, Paul Pierce, Paul George, Chris Bosh (is playing better than Garnett), Tyson Chandler (should start over Garnett) and Brook Lopez (should also start over Garnett).
I'm sorry to all the really good players on so-so teams, and the less-prolific players on decent teams.
