Joe Johnson was appointed by David Stern to the Eastern All-Star game. Johnson will be replacing since Kidd is sitting out due to a lower-back strain. I am very happy that Johnson is going to be on the roster since he has worked very hard this season and has helped this team come a long way.
all of the people who are saying curry or big ben deserved it are fools. why would a center replace a guard? does that make any sense to you? johnson was the best avaliable guard so they chose him to replace kidd. i am not saying ben or curry didn't deserve it over other centers, which could be a good argument but to argue that a center deserved to play over a guard is obsurd!!!
