Sorry Ernie, Kenny and Chuck! Most of us will not be tuning into your special pre-game show to see who this years All-Star reserves are because this information has already been leaked by multiple sources. In case you have not seen this information yet, here are the reserves:
WESTERN CONFERENCE RESERVES
Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Manu Ginobili and Blake Griffin.
EASTERN CONFERENCE RESERVES
Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Chris Bosh, Al Horford and Joe Johnson.
Players and coaches alike criticize the fans for, “getting it wrong” year after year and with the Yao Ming selection, they may have a point. However, fans all across the country can say the same thing about the coaches. Year after year the coaches seem to leave out the most deserving candidates to fill up those reserve roles, so we decided to select our own, “2011 NBA All-Snub Team”.

Raymond Felton – 17 PPG, 4 RPG, 9 APG and 2 SPG
Monta Ellis – 25 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 6 RPG and 2.3 SPG
LaMarcus Aldridge – 21 PPG, 9 RPG, 2 APG, 1 SPG and 1 BPG
Zach Randolph – 20 PPG, 13 RPG and 1.5 APG
