Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd and New York Knicks forward David Lee have been named by NBA Commissioner David Stern to replace injured West All-Star guard Kobe Bryant (ankle) of the Los Angeles Lakers and East All-Star guard Allen Iverson (personal reasons) of the Philadelphia 76ers, respectively, in the 2010 NBA All-Star Game in Dallas.

Thank goodness. AI didn't deserve to be on that team at all.

I would've chosen Josh Smith... but Lee is more deserving than AI.

And you wonder why players don't play D anymore... because you almost never get recognized for defensive efforts.


Too many All-Stars and MVP's over the past decade that don't play a lick of defense.

I have a feeling that this whole allstar weekend is going to be a big dissapointment.

No doubt. This is why Howard gets shit on for 'only' averaging 18 - 20 PPG and nobody talks about his huge defensive numbers.

I hope SVG starts Rondo in place of Rose.

And now BagelRed is mad because DLee's market value just shot up

I agree that Lee is more deserving than AI, but this is madness. David Lee? Out of all the people, him? I would put Stephen Jackson over Lee.

To be honest, I'd rather see AI, or Shaq over DAVID LEE of all people.
