Thursday evening the NBA announced the reserves for the 2013 All-Star game in Houston this year. 
 
Western Conference Reserves                                    Eastern Conference Reserves
Tony Parker                                                                     Paul George
James Harden                                                                 Jrue Holiday 
LaMarcus Aldridge                                                          Tyson Chandler 
David Lee                                                                        Chris Bosh 
Zach Randolph                                                                Joakim Noah 
Tim Duncan                                                                     Luol Deng
Russell Westbrook                                                          Kyrie Irving 
 
Some things to note about the All-Star selection this year:
 
1.  Although Stephen Curry was an All-Star snub once again, David Lee becomes the first Warrior to make the All-Star team since Latrell Sprewell in ’97. 
 
2.  The Mavericks had at least one representative in the All-Star game for the past 13 seasons, but the streak was broken this year.  It was the 3rd longest streak behind the Lakers and the Spurs whose streak continues. 
 
3.  Hopefully, they put a few lockers between KG and Melo this year.

Congrats to the players who didn't make the All-Star team and the much need rest and relaxation that they will be getting.  Houston may be lovely this time of year, but Hawaii is much nicer.

that might be a good rule... 2 players max per team.  Would that be 2 max per team as starters?  or total on the team including being a reserve?

I can't understand why Chris Bosh is an all star.  In my opinion,( one expert of everything on this site will disagree) no team should have more than 2 players on the roster.
