Newsday is citing sources “with knowledge of the situation” that say Knick center Eddy Curry will not be among those named to the All-Star team.
Curry, currently averaging 19ppg and 7rpg, is enjoying his best season. Orlando center Dwight Howard, averaging 17 and 12, appears a more likely candidate to back up starter Shaquille O’Neal.
Personally, I think Curry makes a decent case for All-Star consideration but the team’s poor record and his own notoriously poor defense are factors likely to count against him.
Newsday and the Post are reporting that David Lee has been named to the sophomore team in the matchup pitting NBA rookies versus second year players.
