With the announcement of who will fill out the All-Star roster for both the East and the West coming out tonight, I figured I would weight in with my 2 cents. Each conference must have on their bench 2 guards, 2 forwards, 1 center, and then 2 whatever you’re feelin’.
First in the Eastern Conference:
Don’t really have any problems here. Take a look at the backcourt though with their combined 28 wins.
G Chauncey Billups (17.9 pts., 7.1 assists)
G Joe Johnson (21.2 pts., 4.4 rebs., 5.3 assists)
F Paul Pierce (20.1 pts., 5.7 rebs., 5 assists)
F Caron Butler (21.9 pts., 7 rebs., 4.3 assists)
C Chris Bosh (22.7 pts., 9.1 rebs.)*
F Antawn Jamison (21.4 pts., 10.6 rebs.)
F Josh Smith (18 pts., 8.1 rebs., 3.2 blocks)
- I know Chris Bosh is a forward, I’m putting him in as a center. Other very deserving players include Richard Hamilton, Ray Allen, Jose Calderon, Michael Redd, Richard Jefferson, and Hedo Turkoglu.
How Chris Paul is not starting is beyond me. Fan voting is for the birds. My subs are…
G Chris Paul (20.8 pts., 3.9 rebs., 10.7 assists)
G Steve Nash (17.4 pts., 11.9 asts., 48% 3FG)
F Carlos Boozer (22.4 pts., 10.6 rebs., 55% FG)
F Dirk Nowitzki (22.3 pts., 8.6 rebs.)
C Marcus Camby (9.3 pts., 14.3 rebs., 3.9 blocks)
F/C Amare Stoudemire (22.7 pts., 9 rebs., 59.5% FG)
G Baron Davis (22.3 pts., 4.8 rebs., 8.1 assists)
We’ll have to wait and see until tonight who the coaches pick.
