Vote Early, Vote Often

2010 NBA All-Star Game ballot unveiled - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

As usual, there are 120 players listed on the ballot, and voters select two guards, two forwards and one center from each conference. The 120 names were selected by a panel of NBA scribes. This year's "Dream Team" included Mike Breen (ABC/ESPN), Eddie Sefko (Dallas Morning News), Doug Smith (The Toronto Star) Marc Spears (Yahoo! Sports, what what!), Marc Stein (ESPN) and Ian Thomsen (SI).

No surprises with who was on the ballot for the Celtics.  KG and Pierce are virtual locks.  Ray Allen has been a late addition the last two years running.  Also on the ballot are Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins, and Rasheed Wallace.

Sheed has been there before and probably won't make it again in his 6th man role.  Perkins would seem like a reach, though the list of Centers in the East I'd put ahead of him isn't very long.

If the Celtics roll over opponents like they have been for the last couple years out of the gate, I could see them sending 4 to the game, but coaches usually like to limit it to 3.  As I've said in the past, I'd like to see Rondo go to his first, even if it means Ray Allen spending some more time with his family that weekend.
