The snubbing of Brook Lopez was a head-scratcher for every Nets fan along with several beat writers and other NBA fans. He's been playing at an All-Star level, which we explained here. With Rajon Rondo going down with a torn ACL, David Stern was allowed to pick anybody as his replacement. With speculation debating Brook Lopez, Josh Smith, and Brandon Jennings amongst others, Stern went with Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez.
There's nothing really to say, except that Lopez deserves it.
Brook Lopez of the @brooklynnets has been named by NBA Commissioner David Stern to replace injured East All-Star Rajon Rondo of the Celtics
