Nets’ Brook Lopez Replaces Celtics’ Rajon Rondo In All-Star Game

8492636With Rajon Rondo out for the season, NBA Commissioner David Stern has named the replacement. Check out this tweet from Brian Windhorst of ESPN:


There were a lot of critics that said Brook Lopez from the Brooklyn Nets should’ve been picked in the roster in the first place. Lopez is having a great bounce-back year after only playing five games last season. He’s averaging 18.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks (good for seventh in the league) per game. When it comes to PER (Player Efficiency Rating), he is fourth in the league with 25.23 behind LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Chris Paul. Great pick by the NBA Commissioner. This is the first time Lopez has made the all-star team.

Brooklyn is 27-18, which makes them the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. It’s a huge improvement as they were able to upgrade in the last couple of seasons with guys like Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace. And with Lopez back, the Nets became even better. For a while, they were dangling Lopez in an effort to get Dwight Howard. But the trade talks broke down after Orlando balked at the Nets’ offer so Brooklyn decided to extend Lopez with a max contract.

Lopez was drafted 10th overall by the New Jersey Nets in the 2008 NBA Draft. He made the NBA All-Rookie team in the 2008-09 season when he averaged 13.0 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. He averaged the most points in 2010-11 when he put in 20.4 points per game. As mentioned, he only played five games last season before coming back with this all-star year this season. Even though he’s played less than 30 minutes per game, his numbers have been stellar for the minutes he’s played.

As mentioned earlier, he replaces Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics, who is out for the season with a torn ACL. He suffered the tear in Boston’s loss against Atlanta last Friday night.
