Apparently the last two were Aldridge and Horford.  Curry picked Aldridge leaving Horford for James.

Sounds like alridge was the true last player but its not super clear. Either way not surprised. Both aren't flashy big names

Horford was second to last, followed by LMA. It makes sense, because its a game for athletes. Still, Id take Horford before Love all day.

Horford probably deserved to be one of the last chosen based on talent, but if I were picking an All-Star team, he is exactly the kind of unselfish player I would want on my team as he would make my buddies and I look really good!

Nobody wants some decent, but not great, guy out there jacking up bad shots. Everybody wants the ball passed to them at the right time for an easy score...especially from a big man who also sets solid screens and plays solid defense (as solid as can be expected in an A-S game).

Horford is on Team Steph.

But someone has to go last.. doesn't mean anything if you ask me.

The whole Celtics team should be in Boston practicing their shots and defenses.

Not be playing in the All-Stars, in which they're being coached by one conference rival team who could run them to the ground.   >:( >:( >:(

Picked 2nd to last?? Horrible.

And this is why we should have never given him the max and this is proof he's a bust.

  • Peace it's a board. We all will never agree.
Top 24 is still pretty awesome. His signing here was a great day for the Celtics organization. It proved we can attract good talent to Boston. He is to me what a Celtic is as a player unselfish and team first player.
