Rajon Rondo has been selected to play in the All Star Game for the third time in his short career. Rondo will replace Joe Johnson in the Eastern Conference squad that will face the West next Sunday.
Rondo will be the replacement for Joe Johnson on the All-Star team. Hasn't been announced yet, but hey, that's what Twitter's for I guess. — Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) February 22, 2012
Although Rondo deserved to be an All Star, the news come as a surprising move, considering the decision was made by the league who had previously severely punished Rondo's actions against the Pistons. Rondo and Pierce will represent our Boston Celtics next weekend.
