Ray Allen has played like an All-Star all season for the 41-9 Celtics. Today, he officially became one for the ninth time in his NBA career.

The NBA announced this afternoon that Allen will replace injured Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson on the Eastern Conference All-Star team for the Feb. 15 game in Phoenix.

Allen will join teammates Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce on the East squad for the second straight season. Garnett was voted in by fans, while coaches selected Pierce as a reserve.

Congrats Ray.  People in Cleveland are going think Mo Williams got screwed.

Thanks to reader Alvaro for the heads up

    Soooooo deserving. Mo Williams is having an incredible year, but he’s certainly no Ray Allen.

  • Rondo would have had me livid. I can live with Ray getting the nod – I think he deserves it more than Pierce, to be honest.

    Injury replacement all-star. Not good enough to make the first cut last 2 years in a row. Enough said.
