Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were not among the Eastern Conference starters for the 2011 All-Star Game as voted by the fans. Chicago's Derrick Rose and New York's Amar'e Stoudemire passed them in the voting and joined Miami LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and Orlando's Dwight Howard, who was the East's leading vote getter.
The Western Conference starters are Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Yao Ming. (Yao is injured and will be replaced by commissioner David Stern). The reserves will be announced Feb. 3.
