An All-Star mailbag
By Chris Forsberg
Paul Pierce is hoping for a chance at redemption in the All-Star weekend 3-point shootout.
NBA All-Star reserves will be unveiled Thursday and the Celtics are hoping a couple of teammates will be joining Kevin Garnett, an Eastern Conference starter, in Dallas for this year's midseason spectacular. With that in mind, we're dedicating this week's mailbag to your questions on everything related to this year's All-Star festivities. Consider it an All-Star mailbag.
* Which Celtics deserve to be All-Star reserves?
* Will Doc Rivers coach the Eastern Conference stars?
* Should Kevin Garnett play in the All-Star game?
* Do Eddie House and Paul Pierce deserve to be in the 3-point shootout?
We also close out the 'bag with some non-All-Star questions, including Big Baby's new nickname; expectations for the Celtics' upcoming stretch against the Magic, Hawks, and Lakers; and thoughts on the Ray Allen-for-Monta Ellis rumors.
