Pierce, Rondo to be named All Stars

ORLANDO, Fla. — Kevin Garnett will have some company at next month’s All-Star Game in Dallas.

sources confirmed that both Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo are expected to
be among the Eastern Conference all-star reserves announced later

That’s about right.  Pierce is having a very underrated season right now, but he’s definitely worthy.  And Rondo is a no-brainer.  This will be the first of MANY in a row for Rondo. 

This was one of the topics we discussed last night on The 2 Man Game with WEEI’s Jessica Camerato.

We also discussed Glen Davis’ nickname flap… and how it all really came about… KG’s knee and how he really looks out there… how Marquis Daniels’ impending return will shake up minute-wise…  and why we should throw confetti when she shows up at tonight’s Red’s Army Birthday Bash (yes, she’s going… bring a sharpie so she can sign autographs).

    Very happy for these two, especially Rondo. First of many. Full All-Star reserve list has been leaked on Yahoo! Sports by our man Marc Spears:
    East: Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson, Derrick Rose, Gerald Wallace, Al Horford
    West: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Brandon Roy, Pau Gasol, Zach Randolph
    I think they did a great job this year, for once. I don’t have any major complaints. I think maybe a guy like Bogut or even David Lee could have been put on there over Horford, and I think you could have made a case for Gasol being left off the team due to number of games missed, and maybe replaced him with Chris Kaman. But in the same token, I think Gasol is playing the best ball of his career. So, it is what it is.

    I just remember somebody on this sight (not a celtics fan) sayin they might as well pay 11 mil a year for Jordan Farmar, when Rondo got his contract…. LOL.
