Finally, an all-star has COME BACK… TO CHICAGO!!!
After what seems like an eternity, the Chicago Bulls will finally be sending someone to the 2010 All-Star game in Dallas!! Yahoo Sports reports:
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. The names won’t be made official until Thursday night, but Yahoo! Sports has obtained the list of reserves.
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.
The West reserves are the New Orleans’ Chris Paul, the Lakers’ Pau Gasol, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, Memphis’ Zach Randolph and Portland’s Brandon Roy.
This is great news, not just for Bulls fans, but also for Illini fans! Deron deserves his first all star appearance, and for the first time in a long time I am happy about something with the Bulls (no, I don’t care about this latest winning streak because they still have VDN on the bench).
