Rip and Chauncey are going to Vegas

New, comments

The NBA announced it's All-Star reserves, and Chauncey Billups and Rip Hamilton both made the cut.

Here's the rosters from the East:

F – LeBron James, Cleveland
F – Chris Bosh, Toronto
C – Shaquille O’Neal, Miami
G – Dwyane Wade, Miami
G – Gilbert Arenas, Washington
R – Chauncey Billups, Detroit
R – Caron Butler, Washington
R – Vince Carter, New Jersey
R – Richard Hamilton, Detroit
R – Dwight Howard, Orlando
R – Jason Kidd, New Jersey
R – Jermaine O'Neal, Indiana

I wouldn't have been surprised if Joe Johnson or Michael Redd get the call over Chauncey, but obviously I'm not complaining. Here's the West:

F – Kevin Garnett, Minnesota
F – Tim Duncan, San Antonio
C – Yao Ming, Houston
G – Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers
G – Tracy McGrady, Houston
R – Carlos Boozer, Utah
R – Allen Iverson, Denver
R – Shawn Marion, Phoenix
R – Steve Nash, Phoenix
R – Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas
R – Tony Parker, San Antonio
R – Amare Stoudemire, Phoenix

Personally, I'm surprised Carmelo Anthony was snubbed again in the West, though I have to imagine he's the top candidate (with Josh Howard a close second) to replace the injured Boozer.

Any thoughts on the rosters?
