For the tenth time in his career, Allen Iverson is heading to the All-Star game and has earned a starting guard spot alongside Dwayne Wade. From the Free Press:
There’s something to be said for being a tough little guy.
Though his production this season is well below his career averages, 6-foot Pistons shooting guard Allen Iverson will again start an All-Star Game, Feb. 15 in Phoenix.
Though his production this season is well below his career averages, 6-foot Pistons shooting guard Allen Iverson will again start an All-Star Game, Feb. 15 in Phoenix.“It’s always an honor to be named an All-Star and it’s a blessing to be in this league,” Iverson said in a released statement. “Being named an All-Star starter makes it that much more special. The fact that the fans have voted me onto the team makes this a great honor and it’s truly appreciated.”
This will be Iverson’s 10th trip to the midwinter event. He got 1,804,649 votes, good for second among Eastern Conference guards. Miami’s Dwyane Wade will start alongside him. The East’s frontcourt is forwards LeBron James (Cleveland) and Kevin Garnett (Boston) and center Dwight Howard (Orlando).
Will Tayshaun finally see the All-Star light this season? Will Rodney play himself in as a reserve? Those ideas certainly have been tossed around in these parts before.
Do you think any other Pistons have a shot at an All-Star appearance?
