They named the rest of the All-Star teams, and isn't it interesting that 7 of the East's roster is coming from the Celtics or Heat? I know they are the best two teams in the conference, but won't it at times feel like Heat-Celts vs the West?

I'm not complaining, just find it interesting...

The obvious facepalm up there is Yao, but we all know why he is there. I was thinking Boozer might get onto the EC squad but I can see why he wouldn't (even though he would have my vote). The most annoying snub to me though is Kevin Love who is a ton of fun to watch and should probably be there.

Holy crap, just realized Love got the snub. I don't give a damn what the Wolves record is, that guy IS an all-star talent. I must say, that Eastern starting lineup is beastly from an athletic standpoint.

Kevin Love deserves to be an all-star, but I was really disappointed that Tyson Chandler wasn't given the vacant center spot.

Good thing none of the Celtics players aren't starting.

Funny how only players from the Top 6 teams in the East have been selected?
Too many good players - the roster should be increased to 15, without the inactive list.

The voting is so bad. Yao?? Dirk should be a starter.
