From the same link in the Jason Kidd/Kobe Bryant thread.


Also just filed to ESPN.com: Philadelphia's Allen Iverson (personal matters) will be replaced by New York's David Lee

He just said he was going to play in the ASG like a few hours ago, wonder what happened.

David Lee? Why not Jamal Crawford who is having an All Star year as a 6th Man.

I'm really suprised with all the injuries.

Paul, Roy, Kobe, AI( in his case not an injury but its good he's not in it though). Rose is hurt right now, really don't think he should be participating either.

I think Iverson should have played despite people criticizing him. The ASG is about entertainment, I do not want to watch a boring excellent player, i'll rather watch a entertaining good player. Fans voted for who they want to see, and whomever is voted in, should play... I believe A.I dropped out because of so much haters.....

It should have been like this from the beginning. David Lee was overrated last year...and this year he is underrated...because I believe no player has improved more this season. Not even Aaron Brooks.

David Lee earned it ! He shoulda made the team in the first place not just as a replacement. 20 points per game with 11 rebounds are by far all-star stats and he leads the NBA in assists per game as a center. Finally the Knicks get an all-star

Well Deserved. I think Lee should have made it over Horford in the first place.

With AI injured, they should have picked Josh Smith instead.

Oh well.

Who starts in place of AI??? I let SVG answer that.


He finished the play, which is incredible,” said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, the East All Star coach who said he had hoped to play Rose a lot because he is so impressed with Rose. “That’s what I said to my assistants. He made that because he’s so strong. He’s a little bit like LeBron (James) going to the hoop. People bounce off. Dwight’s coming to block it and he’s (Rose) looking for contact. It’s a pretty good collision. I hope he’s OK.

I have to strongly agree with you here. Joe Johnson or Dwyane Wade should start at PG, and the other at SG obviously.

Allen Iverson decided not to play in this one because he has an ill daughter. I hope she feels better.
http://www.seattlepi.com/scorecard/nbanews.asp?articleID=274799

I must say though, I am not excited because Allen Iverson isn't playing, like I see other people are. It's just that I don't think he deserves it this year, but no one can deny that he is an exciting player.

As far as the Rose vs. Rondo argument, my vote goes to Derrick Rose. Give Rose just one good big man to play with and you'll really see what he's made of. Noah is getting there, but I am speaking more in terms of an All-Star big man. Every legit PG needs one of those.

i would have wade playing the PG and Joe Johnson starting at SG. Its an ASG positions arent that important. Plus wade and lebron can handle the ball so PG isnt that important. Just go with the best guard on the reserves.

Umm no its not. Seriously, I don't wanna see Rondo full court pressing the whole game. Thats about the only thing hes better than Rose at. But w.e. neither should start. BTW who is "made"? (Maybe you should read before you click post)
Why not put lebron at SG? Can anyone argue with Bosh starting?

Acording to voting, rose should, becaues he had the most votes

I think that Wade will play point though, with Joe Johnson at SG it is bassed on guards after all, not PG vs SG

I think that Rondo has a solid chance as well, as a bulls fan, I would love to see rose start, just dont see it hapening, especialy after that fall he took the other night

For those of you saying: "Why not Josh Smith" ? Are you joking ?

Lee averages more points and rebounds,. He has a better field goal percentage, and almost averages as many assists (as a center). Sure Smiths team is performing better, but is it David Lee's fault that his starting point guard wouldn't be a first string jock strap cleaner on most NBA teams ?
