Ball Don't Lie - NBA

This just in: Thunder forward Kevin Durant, the reigning Rookie of the Year, and dynamic Bulls guard Derrick Rose, the first overall pick in the '08 Draft, lead your list of 18 players selected for the '09 All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge.

I'm a little bummed Orlando Magic young'n Courtney Lee didn't make the cut — he's played great in limited minutes for Stan Van Gundy this season — but I can't be too upset, the Rook roster is stacked. See below.


The complete Sophomore team: Durant, Jeff Green, Al Horford, Al Thornton, Thaddeus Young, Wilson Chandler, Rodney Stuckey and a pair of gritty Rockets — Aaron Brooks and Luis Scola. Not too shabby.

Joining D-Rose on the Rookie team: O.J. Mayo, Marc Gasol, Greg Oden, Rudy Fernandez, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Michael Beasley and Brook Lopez.

Again, outside of adding more seats to the bench, I'm not sure how you make room for Lee there.

But what do you think, any glaring ommissions?
