All-Star-Reserves-Named,-and-none-name-Iguodala

 PhillyArena link:

The NBA has announced the reserves for the All Star game:

Devin Harris, Danny Granger, Jameer Nelson, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson, Rashard Lewis and Paul Pierce.

Apparently, it helps to play for a winner, especially one in Orlando.  All of the borderline choices were Magic or Celtics.

My take:  not a surprise.  Players are rewarded for playing for winners because they tend to be higher profile.  It draws fans not only for the All Star game, but gives those players a higher stature when the playoffs come around.  No reason to showcase a known star like VC if that team will be one and done in the playoffs.  Harris and Bosh on the other hand are no brainers.

I don't think Iguodala was robbed, but I do think its a bit of a farce to reward Jameer for playing a few good months.  He was in many ways a below average NBA PG heading into this season.  Give him Most Improved Player, but don't tell me he is an All Star based on a few good months.  Lewis is equally questionable.
