The Knicks have not drafted a player who turned out to be in all-star since Mark Jackson in 1989. New York has not been represented at the All-Star game since 2001. The last American born white player to make it was Brad Miller in 2003 and 2004. The NBA will release the reserve players on Thursday, and reserve squad will consist of two guards, two forwards, one center, and two wildcards from both the East and West.

David Lee is 7th in points (19.4), 4th in field goal percentage (55.4), 3rd in rebounds (11.4) and leads all NBA centers with assists per game (3.4). In 12 games this month he is averaging 20.7 points, 12.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists.

There is just one 20-10 player in the East and that is Chris Bosh, but Lee is approaching 20 points per game which would make him the second. Lee has been labeled as a system guy but he has shown versatility with a jumper, post moves and attacking the basket.

Here are my reserves:

Rajon Rondo, Joe Johnson, Bosh, Gerald Wallace, Brook Lopez, Derrick Rose and Josh Smith

On the bubble: Paul Pierce, Andrew Bogut, Antawn Jamsion, Andre Iguodala and Al Horford.
