Report: Derrick Rose Makes All-Star Team!

By Sean Mackey

It has been reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports that Derrick Rose will be named to his first NBA all-star game this evening when the reserves are announced tonight on TNT. Rose will be joined alongside Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace & Al Horford and previously announced starters Allen Iverson, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett & Dwayne Wade to complete the 2010 Eastern all-star squad. Western reserves include Chris Paul, Paul Gasol, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Zach Randolph and Brandon Roy.

Derrick Rose is the first Chicago Bull to be chosen for the all-star team since Michael Jordan in 1998. Congrads to him and the Bulls for finally having an all-star. As previously announced, Rose will also be starting in the rookie/sophmore game and defending his Skills Challenge title.

The only real snub this year is Chris Kaman who rightfully should have been chosen over Pau Gasol. New York fans are also probably a little upset that David Lee was left out, but who cares? Derrick Rose is in and that's all that matters :)
