David Lee an All Star?

Knicks Rumors & News

David Lee is making a strong case to make the East All-Star team as a reserve. The game is a month away in Phoenix and the Knicks have not had an All Star since Latrell Sprewell and Allan Houston were selected to the squad in 2001. Lee has stepped up his game this month averaging 19.3 points, 12 rebounds, 1.4 steals and shooting 60% from the field in 7 games. He has registered a double-double in 23 of his last 26 games and is fifth in the NBA with 11.1 rebounds per game. The fourth year player is sixth in the league with a 57.3% field goal percentage and is averaging more points than Shawn Marion, Emeka Oakafor and Rasheed Wallace. However, the Knicks are 15-22 which can play a factor if Lee makes the team. Also, he has attempted just one three-pointer this season and is averaging 0.4 blocks per game.
