David Stern selected Josh Howard to replace one of the injured players on the Western Conference All-Star team.
"It is an honor to be selected to my first All-Star team,” said Howard. "This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. It is especially gratifying to play alongside my teammate Dirk Nowitzki."
Howard is arguably the 2nd best player on the best team in the NBA. Many Mavericks fans (including myself) were upset that he got snubbed in the first place. I’m glad Stern did the right thing and put him on the team. Carmelo Anthony was also added.
