(Good to see Griffin get in there, and a little more diversity with teams in the Western Conference.)
Minnesota's Kevin Love is a notable snub, but David Stern's injury replacement for Yao Ming hasn't been announced yet.

If Boozer had played a full season and still put up his 20/10 numbers I could've seen him getting picked and either KG or Bosh getting bumped off the team. Guys like Smith, Felton, Bogut, and Granger have more guys in the conference playing either just as well or better than them at their positions and are on better teams. If you want to put a rule in where X number of players can be picked from a team then you will still have deserving guys getting snubbed.

Yeah... one of the fringe benefits is that Kukoc is on his last year, so Milwaukee gets some cap room, which they probably need more than Robinson's 20 ppg and doghouse status. EDIT: Whee, I'm a contendah. (YES, I just realized this three days later.)
