NBA D-League All-Star Rosters Announced

New, 3 comments


They'll need to replace Sundiata Gaines and Joey Dorsey (as of right now) and Ron Howard isn't currently on a D-League roster (released due to injury), but he could be back by All-Star weekend.  This means there are a few spots that could change ("replacements, if necessary, will be announced in the days leading up to the game"), but the gist of the D-League All-Stars was announced today.

As far as I can tell, Bakersfield, Dakota, LA and Reno didn't have anybody make the team.  Those teams didn't really have anyone overly deserving of the honor, but I wouldn't mind if the D-League made an attempt to have every team be represented, if not in the all-star game, than the 3-point/dunk contest. 

Also, if it truly was fan voting, how did Reno's Rod Benson not make it?  He's not having the greatest season, but I assume everyone that doesn't heavily follow the D-League voted for him based on his name alone.  Hell, looking at our ballots awhile ago, we even voted for Benson.

After the jump, the full teams.  Aside from Alade Aminu and maybe Alonzo Gee, I don't think I have any issues with the players chosen.
