The Boston Celtics have four all-stars. They're on pace for 63 wins.
The Miami Heat have three all-stars. They're on pace for 58 wins.
The Atlanta Hawks have two all-stars. They're on pace for 52 wins.
The Bulls? They have only one all-star, and they're also on pace for 58 wins. I guess our star is just a lot better than everyone else's.
Did Carlos Boozer get snubbed? Luol Deng?
I'm not sure, I think both are more deserving than Ray Allen, but apparently the coaches don't think so. Al Horford? Why the hell is Al Horford in there? Because Atlanta
starts him at center? He's no more a center than Carlos Boozer. He
just plays there because Atlanta has too many good forwards.
In any case, the coaches must thing that Derrick Rose is a freakin bad ass. He must be crushing the league with his sheer awesomeness, because apparently he doesn't have any star help, just some role players next to him.
The results aren't really shocking to me, but they are somewhat disappointing. The Bulls are tired for the third best record in the NBA and have a 20/10 guy who didn't make the all-star game. That just strikes me as somewhat ridiculous.
