CP3’s All-Star Spot Goes to Billups

by February 04, 2010

Monta Ellis will have to wait another year — or perhaps for another injury — to make the ASG: “Tuesday, I asked Ellis, who has vacation plans that involve fishing, if he would be willing to forgo those plans if he gets the call from the league. Ellis: ‘I’ll think about it,’ drawing a chorus of laughs. Looks like Ellis won’t have to give up his chill time on the water. The league announced today that Commissioner David Stern has pegged Denver Nuggets point guard Chauncey Billups as the All-Star alternate, taking the place of injured New Orleans point guard Chris Paul. Billups’ fifth All-Star appearance means Ellis won’t be making his first.”
