The NBA All-Star game Twitter account just announced this year's participants for the 2012 Three Point Contest. No Celtics players were among them, not even reigning three point king Ray Allen or 2010 three point champion Paul Pierce.
The full list of 2012 participants includes last year's champion James Jones of the Miami Heat, teammate Mario Chalmers, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Anthony Morrow of the New Jersey Nets, Ryan Anderson or the Orlando Magic, and Joe Johnson of the Atlanta Hawks.
Even if Ray or Paul were offered a slot, they might have turned it down since neither are playing in the All-Star game and are probably looking to get some much-needed rest.
The 2012 NBA All-Star weekend takes place February 24-26th in Orlando, FL. More information on all its events can be found at http://www.nba.com/allstar/2012/index.html.
