Ben Wallace won’t be an All-Star, but I think he has an excuse

Ben Wallace won’t be on the All-Star team, and I can’t complain about that.

Reserve Al Horford is more deserving. David Lee, Joakim Noah, Kendrick Perkins, Brooke Lopez and Andrew Bogut can make strong cases, too.

But Lee, 26, is the oldest of those players. Ben Wallace is 35!

You won’t hear is name mentioned among the snubs, and I agree his play is one step below the near-All-Star level. He’s not the best, but he’s competing against players so much younger than him and excelling. I just wanted to take a moment to point out what a special season he’s having.

Yes, it’s been a long season when I’m excited about the Pistons’ near-near-All-Star.
