In an earth shattering move, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has picked Chris Bosh to replace Rajon Rondo as all-star starter.
Of just there’s just a little sarcasm there, but it is an obnoxious choice. For those keeping track at home, the starters for the East this year are Kevin Garnett (6’11”), Chris Bosh (6’11”), Lebron James (6’8”), Carmelo Anthony (6’8”) and Dwyane Wade (6’4”). Four big forwards and a guard.
So much for getting rid of the center position. Sure, Spoelstra wants his guys to get all the accolades, but it also seems like Spo wants to coach a team at least once this year with some size.
I know it’s just an exhibition game and doesn’t really matter, but come on, replacing a point guard with a near-seven-footer just flies in the face of logic. I’m sure Spo will play his guys all of five minutes then let the bench, Melo and KG put in all the effort.
