Yesterday, even before the national announcement during TNT’s Thursday night lineup, the reserves for the All Star Game were leaked. This is not that surprising. In a world of constant communication it is near immpossible to keep something secret forever. Yet, out of the goodness of their hearts, Yahoo! waited until a few hours before the official announcement to release the names of those who would join the All Star Teams.
Eastern Conference Reserves:
Jesus Shuttlesworth aka Ray Allen
Al Horford (He deserves it.)
Western Conference Reserves:
Blake Griffin (He made it!)
Tim Duncan (This has to be a selection based on pure respect rather than numbers this season)
There will also be another player, selected by Emperor Stern, to replace Yao Ming in the starting lineup for the Western Conference All Stars because Yao is out for the season with yet another foot injury.
