Tony Parker disappointed at not making All-Star team

Acknowledging he was disappointed at not being added to the team, Parker was gracious, and remained hopeful he might land a spot when NBA commissioner David Stern replaces injured Yao Ming, voted the starting center.

Stern is not required to replace Yao with a center, and the West team includes a strong group of big men.

“Of course, I’m disappointed,” Parker said, “Everybody who made it deserved it, but of course I’m disappointed.

“There’s still one left. We’ll see what happens with that. But I’m just going to ? focus on helping this team win as many games as we can.”

Parker said he was grateful for the support he had gotten from teammates who say he deserved to have been selected.
