Iverson Voted as Starter in All-Star Game

By  | 

NEW YORK - Allen Iverson has been voted to start in the All-Star game, while Steve Nash and Tim Duncan made late moves to claim starting spots for the Western Conference.

Nash passed the inactive Tracy McGrady as the second guard, while Duncan disappointed Dallas fans hoping to see Dirk Nowitzki start by rallying past the Mavericks forward.

LeBron James was the leading vote-getter for the Feb. 14 game at
Cowboys Stadium, becoming the first player to earn at least 2.5 million votes three times.

Joining James and Iverson as East starters Thursday were Miami guard Dwyane Wade, Orlando center Dwight Howard and Boston forward
Kevin Garnett.

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was picked in the West along with Phoenix center Amare Stoudemire and Denver forward Carmelo Anthony.
