NBA All-Star Ballots Highlighted By All Five Celtics Starters

The 2010 NBA All-Star Ballots have been released, and as expected, the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics have a number of players on the list.

Rajon Rondo highlights a list of five Celtics, all starters, on the ballot. Joining Rondo are center Shaquille O'Neal, forwards Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and guard Ray Allen.

Rondo was selected to his first All-Star game last season, and is well on his way towards his second selection. With his league-leading 14.9 assists, 10.9 points and 2.6 steals per game, Rondo may very well be selected as the Eastern Conference's starting point guard.

O'Neal leads the Celtics with an impressive 15 All-Star selections. Garnett has been selected to play in the game 13 times, Allen has been selected nine times and Pierce has been selected eight times.

The Celtics have the second-most players on this year's ballot, with only the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers putting more players on the list with six.
