The Eastern Conference All-Star reserves do not include Amar'e Stoudemire or Tyson Chandler.

New, comments

The All-Star reserves for both conferences were just announced. Here's the whole roster for the Eastern Conference from the SBN NBA page:

Dwyane Wade, Heat*
LeBron James, Heat*
Derrick Rose, Bulls*
Dwight Howard, Magic*
Carmelo Anthony, Knicks*
Joe Johnson, Hawks
Paul Pierce, Celtics
Andre Iguodala, 76ers
Deron Williams, Nets
Roy Hibbert, Pacers
Chris Bosh, Heat
Luol Deng, Bulls

Yeah. None of those people are Amar'e Stoudemire, which is probably reasonable. None of them are Tyson Chandler either, which seems less reasonable but, then again, it's kind of better for Amar'e and Tyson to get a long weekend to rest. So, as of right now, the Knicks' only two All-Star Weekend participants are Carmelo Anthony (if he's healthy enough to play) and Landry Fields (who'll be a Sophomore person).

Meanwhile, the word from internet personality Tas Melas is that there are rumors of Iman Shumpert being a Dunk Contest participant. I've no idea where that rumor comes from, but it's an odd one. Shump's a pretty silly athlete and we've seen plenty of good video of him dunking...but I'd estimate that he's like 4-10 on dunk attempts this year. He's tried some that would have been impressive, but converted very few.

But anyway, buns for Tyson and Amar'e, but also kinda not buns, too, you know?
