A. Sherrod Blakley has the good news:
The NBA released its list of all-star reserves Thursday night.
And as expected, the Celtics led the way with four players chosen.
Paul Pierce, who will be making his ninth all-star appearance - only four Celtics have been chosen more often - will be joined by Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo.
This will be the first time since 1975 that the Celtics will have four players participate in the All-Star game. It's also the first time since 2006 (Detroit Pistons) that one team produced four all-stars in the same year. That quartet of Pistons included former Celtic Rasheed Wallace.
Congrats to KG, Ray, Rondo, and the Captain!
