2011 NBA All Star Reserves; Did The Coaches Get It Right?

The 2011 All Star reserves were announced last night on TNT. While the East team held few surprises, dominated largely by the Heat and Celtics, you knew on the West that someone was going to lose. For me, the inclusion of Tim Duncan was a shocker. I recognize that the Spurs quietly (as is their usual mode of operation) have the best record in the NBA  right now but somehow Tim Duncan’s inclusion on the west team over Kevin Love or LaMarcus Aldridge seemed unfair.

The 2010-11 East All-Stars

LeBron James
Amare Stoudemire
Dwyane Wade
Derrick Rose
Dwight Howard

Ray Allen
Chris Bosh
Kevin Garnett
Al Horford
Joe Johnson
Paul Pierce
Rajon Rondo

The 2010-11 West All-Stars

Kevin Durant
Carmelo Anthony
Kobe Bryant
Chris Paul
Yao Ming (Injured)

Tim Duncan
Pau Gasol
Blake Griffin
Manu Ginobili
Dirk Nowitzki
Russell Westbrook
Deron Williams

What are your thoughts on the selection? On the east, should Raymond Felton of the Knicks have made it? What about no Monta Ellis (he’s trigger happy in my opinion but a volume scorer) and no Steve Nash.
