Knicks forward David Lee has been added to the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star team as the replacement for Sixers guard Allen Iverson.
NBA commissioner David Stern made the announcement today. Iverson, who has an ailing daughter, is out for those personal reasons.
Congratulations to Dave, who many of us thought should have been chosen outright. Lee is the Knicks' first All-Star representative since Spree and Houston were on the bench in Washington in '01.
I guess this means I have to watch the game now?
Tips of the hat to SamH, riise, and Ray Smuckles for catching this and Jacob "Sgt. Lingus" Wolf for notifying me.
