Kevin Love Selected to All-Star Team as Yao Ming's Replacement
It took David Stern to fix the glaring omission, and the commissioner did exactly that by naming Love to the Western Conference squad as Yao Ming's replacement.
Love making the team should have been a no-brainer, but the coaches vote for the reserves, and they likely gave Tim Duncan the votes that should have gone to Love -- presumably based on Timmy's body of work, and the fact that the Spurs hold the league's best record at 41-8. LaMarcus Aldridge and Steve Nash were the other top candidates believed to be in the running for Yao's spot.
Video of Love receiving the news in the locker room before Friday night's game can be seen in the clip below.
