Ok, maybe not… but Ray isn’t replacing Kevin Garnett in the All Star game… Rasheed Wallace is.
Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace has been named by NBA Commissioner David Stern to replace injured East All-Star Kevin Garnett (abdominal muscle strain) of the Boston Celtics for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 17 in New Orleans.
Wallace will be making his fourth NBA All-Star appearance. East All-Star head coach Doc Rivers will determine which player on his roster will replace Garnett in the starting line-up.
There’s no truth to the rumor that Doc has requested a special waiver for Brian Scalabrine to replace Kevin Garnett in the All Star starting lineup
