Erik Spoelstra Chooses Chris Bosh to Start in All-Star Game

Chris Bosh was very confident that he’d start in Sunday’s big  game, and Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra proved the forward correct. Bosh will take Rajon Rondo‘s starting spot in the All-Star Game. Sorry, Kyrie Irving. Per the News-Herald: “When Boston point guard Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, he was replaced on the roster by Brooklyn center Brook Lopez. It was Spoelstra’s call who would start in Rondo’s place. “Was there any doubt where my loyalties are?” he told ESPN. There was some speculation that Spoelstra would start another point guard — either Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving or Philadelphia’s Jrue Holiday. In the end, he went with a player on his team. Bosh will join teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the starting lineup. It’s the first time a team has had three starters in the All-Star Game since the 1990 Los Angeles Lakers.”
