David Lee to take AI’s spot in ASG; Kidd to take Kobe’s

by February 11, 2010

Word’s come down that David Lee will replace Allen Iverson, who has missed the five straight games while tending to his ill daughter. Averaging a double-double, David Lee had planned to be in Texas this weekend anyway to attend a friend’s wedding. Now he’ll have what else to do while down in the Lone Star. On the Western front, a banged up Kobe Bryant will be replaced by Jason Kidd. This will be the first All-Star game since 1996-97, their rookie seasons, where neither Bryant nor Iverson will participate in the Sunday night spectacle.
