Sue Bird snubs her Seattle brethren with a NO SONIC response on her NBA All Star Picks. She picks the frenchman dating a desperate housewife and the guard formerly known as an accused rapist over the sideline boxer Ray Allen. Seattle Guard Luke Ridnour is also on the ballot but doesn't really deserve the consideration yet this season, the young man should never have cut off his curly locks, he is like Sampson after his haircut. Rashard Lewis is deserving at the forward, but in a conference with Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki and Elton Brand on the ballot, how do you just pick two and still feel good about yourself. Lynx guard Amber Jacobs becomes the first player NOT from a Seattle team to pick a Seattle player, choosing Ray "right hook" Allen as her man on the perimeter. In other WNBA news, Paul Westhead talks about how his return to coaching professional basketball will open up opportunities for mediocre point guards to set league records for assists while playing against his new up-tempo Phoenix Mercury. (OK that isn't really what he talks about, but I couldn't resist the dig.)
