Congrats to Pau Gasol! He has made the Eastern Conference All-Star team, a starter as a result of fan voting.
Pau joins LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in the frontcourt, with Kyle Lowry (!) and John Wall in the backcourt.
The reserves (selected by the coaches) will be announced next week, where Jimmy Butler has a very good chance to join Pau on the team.
Pau's been very good and decidedly non-Boozer in his first half season as a Bull. Even at 34, he's 18th in the league in PER at 22.75. He's averaging 18.7 points and 11.4 rebounds (with over 2 blocks!) in nearly 35 minutes a game.
This is Pau's 5th All-Star appearance in what has been a Hall of Fame career. It's his first time in the game as a starter (welcome to the Eastern Conference!), and he'll be starting against his own brother, as Marc Gasol will start for the West.
