Who's missing in the East? Lebron James, Lamar Odom, Marbury. I can't believe Magloire got in over Odom. Well, I guess he's the 2nd best center in the East. Could have been Curry if he just had a heart.

In the West? Melo, Gasol, Marion, Nash, Randolph, Dampier, Brand, many more.

There you have it, now it's official. We traded away two All Stars to get Jalen Rose. I'm really happy for Ron Ron. He clearly deserves to be on the team. Miller could have very easily been left out, but he has been flat out amazing for the Kings this year. I'm very proud of his development, and I'd like to think that the Bulls hopefully made some contribution to his immense development as a player over the last five years.

From reading an article on ESPN.com, it was explained that the coaches actually had to vote in one backup Eastern Conference center. It was Magloire or Ilgauskas.

Lebron James not being an Allstar is a travesty

I'm really surprised Jesus Shuttlesworth made it. He's been great, but seriously, he was injured for how long? Glad to see Cassell be selected. He's having a great year.

It must have something to do with position compromises. I can see selecting Kidd and Davis over Lebron...still why is Magloire on this team.

I'm so tired of media ripping on the fans choices for the all-star game when the leagues selections included a "b" rate, out of position, power foward. I'll take Vince over Magloire any day of the week...
