As reported on the Yahoo! Sports NBA blog Ball Don’t Lie: “Point guards Deron Williams of Utah, Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Boston’s Rajon Rondo will make their All-Star Game debuts next month in Dallas, sources said Thursday. Williams, Rondo and Rose top the list of reserves chosen by the league’s coaches to participate in the Feb. 14 game at Cowboys Stadium. … Besides Rondo and Rose, the East roster includes Boston’s Paul Pierce, Toronto’s Chris Bosh, Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace and Atlanta’s Joe Johnson and Al Horford.”
A very well-deserved honor for Rose, who is Chicago’s first All-Star since Michael Jordan. Too bad Joakim Noah couldn’t join him on the team.
