EAST ALL-STAR RESERVES REVEALED

By PETER VECSEY

February 9, 2006 -- The Nets' Vince Carter and four Pistons are among the seven Eastern All-Star reserves to be officially announced today, The Post has learned.

But in a huge surprise, the Wizards' Gilbert Arenas, the fifth-leading scorer in the league, was left off the reserve squad in voting by Eastern coaches.

That could be remedied, however, when Commissioner David Stern personally selects the replacement for injured starter Jermaine O'Neal of the Pacers.

Carter joins Pistons Rasheed Wallace, Ben Wallace, Chauncey Billups and Rip Hamilton as reserves.

Tayshaun Prince is the only Piston starter not selected.

Also on the East's reserve squad are two surprises, from struggling teams ? Paul Pierce of the Celtics and Chris Bosh of the Raptors.

Besides O'Neal, fans voted as East starters: Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade of the Heat, LeBron James of the Cavs and Allen Iverson of the Sixers.

The West starters are Houston's Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant of the Lakers, Tim Duncan of the Spurs and Steve Nash of the Suns.

The West reserves were not available.

I think you have to register to see it but here's the link anyways. http://www.nypost.com/sports/63247.htm

Wow, I'm surprised Rasheed was voted in over Arenas. I was expecting Rasheed to get in as the injury replacement for Oneal. Either way, I'm glad that 4 Pistons made it. I think they really deserve it.

I think there is a mistake because I think Rasheed is the injury replacement for O'Neal.

No mistake it's official now four Pistons named as reserves, David Stern hasn't named the replacement for O'Neal yet. It should for sure be Arenas, and I don't think Bosh deserves to be there. He gets crazy stats cus he's the only good player on one of the worst teams in the league, the fans are supposed to vote players like that in not the coaches. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are both garbage picks too, their teams are awful and thats why they put up the numbers they do. Chris Paul no doubt should've made the team over Allen, his team has as many wins now as they did all last year with virtually all the same players.

Here's the rest of the picks...

Pistons have been great this season. They deserve to go, I cant wait for the game now knowing they will all be there.

Though I HATE Wade, Flip should play him with the piston four to show us all what might have been had it not been for Darko.

Why do you hate Wade? I like him, he isn't bigheaded, and he seems like a nice guy.

Alot has to do with the con. championship last year and Wades excessive flopping during the series.


I really dont think Rasheed should have made it, i think Dwight Howard deserved it more he has powered that Magic team, if not for Howard that team would be truely terrible. However Billups and Hamilton both deserved it after being snubbed the past couple years. And of course Big Ben is a no brainer for the all-star team.

Anyone notice how the Stones seemed to be the only players on either side of the ball playing D?

The announcers kept saying how the game got much closer when the Pistons came in and how they should be putting the Pistons back in lol.
