F: Toronto Raptors Chris Bosh: Bosh had a funny promo video trying to get him a spot and it worked. He also got this spot because of his 22.7 PPG and 9.1 RPG. Toronto is 25-20, and in the playoff picture. They may not catch the Celtics, but they should be a playoff team.
F: Boston Celtics Paul Pierce: Pierce has 20.1 PPG, 5.0 APG and 5.7 RPG this season, as he has been part of the Big 3 of the new Celtics. They are 35-8, and even though Ray Allen didn't make the team, Pierce and KG will represent. This losing skid hasn't helped.
G: Atlanta Hawks Joe Johnson: The Hawks are in the playoff picture as well. It's too bad they aren't clicking as well as some pre-season writters thought. Still, Johnson scores a lot and deserves the birth.
G: New Orleans Hornets Chris Paul: Until yesterday the Hornets were the best team in the west. 21/10 for this young stud. He has made almost as big of an impact as LeBron and Carmelo, just in a different way. The home crowd will love this.
G: Portland Trail Blazers Brandon Roy: Leadership. He is a second-year player who has lead his team from #1 overall-pick, to the playoff picture. At 26-19, the Blazers are playing at a high level, and even though Roy is averaging 19 and 6, he is a legit all-star.
F: New Orleans Hornets David West: 19 and 9 is impressive. This former 1st-Round Pick is legit and playing alongside Chris Paul has helped. Great inside scorer and definitely deserves the all-star selection.
There They Are! What Does Everyone Think?
My biggest snub is Al Jefferson. I know my Wolves are REALLY bad, but Big Al is one of two players averaging at least 20 points and 10 rebounds (Dwight Howard).
Maybe every team should get an All-Star.
