Seattle's Ray Allen and Utah's Mehmet Okur were chosen Tuesday by commissioner David Stern as injury replacements for the All-Star game. They will replace guards Steve Nash (shoulder) and Allen Iverson (ankle) who both pulled out of Sunday's game in Las Vegas. Allen is headed to his fourth straight All-Star game and seventh overall. Okur is a first-time selection.

Im glad Nash is out, this two to three week break mid-season will help keep him fresh for when the real season starts...

i think you got him mixed up with rashard lewis, who has missed a lot of the season (and happens to be in my fantasy team, along with Yao Ming and Jason Richardson... needles to say, I am having a hard time)

zach is playin crazy this year, as he has in the past, but id still go with ray ray over him for this year... a guard for a guard thing. you could argue that he should of gone instead of memo, but memo has been clutch this year, and hes on a winning team. maybe next year for zach?
