David Lee was named as a replacement All-Star yesterday and will join teammates Danilo Gallinari (3-point contest) and Nate Robinson (Slam-Dunk contest) in the festivities in Dallas. The 26 year-old Lee, replacing Allen Iverson on the Eastern Conference team, is averaging 20 points and 11 rebounds per game. Lee’s inclusion in the game gives the Knicks their first All-Star since 2001. 2001 was also the last year the Knicks had a winning record and the year they last won a playoff game. The Eastern Conference won the game that year on a shot by Stephon Marbury. Isn’t it great to be a Knicks’ fan?
