Wow!

Chris Paul and David West were just announced as All-Star reserves live on TNT. Chris Paul, we knew you were due. Congrats on your first, dude. I'm sure you'll be back for many more.

But how about David West? Damn, I didn't see that coming. No doubt in my mind that he deserves it, but I didn't think the coaches would see it the same way. I guess an incredible record and consistent production are taken into consideration after all.

Big Easy D-Weezy in the All-Star game fo sheezy.

Spare a thought though for Tyson Chandler. I can't imagine he missed out by much. Fuel for the fire, big man. Keep working and let's get three guys in there next year.

David West and Chris Paul will represent the Hornets in the 2008 NBA All-Star game, February 17th in New Orleans

Update: Quotes from the press release…

"This is a special moment for me that I share with my teammates, the organization and our fans," said Paul. "I'm truly honored to be able to make my first All-Star appearance in New Orleans and I'm thrilled that I can make it along with D-West, since we've both worked so hard together over the last two-and-a-half years to get this team to where we are now."

"Being named an All-Star is something that I look at as not an individual honor, but one that comes from the overall success of the team," said West. "I'm proud that I was voted to the team, but I'm even more proud of what we've been able to accomplish together on the court and for what it all means to the organization and to the city of New Orleans."

"On behalf of our entire organization and the fans of New Orleans, I'd like to congratulate Chris and David on their selection to the All-Star Team," said Hornets Owner George Shinn. "I'm looking forward to people around the world being able to see not only their talents on the court, but also the great character that makes them such outstanding representatives for the Hornets, the NBA and our city."
