With the addition of Chris Bosh to the Eastern Conference's reserve roster your Miami Heat big three are all officially all stars. Yeah, the Boston Celtics have more All Star players (four on the reserve roster), the Heat have the most in the starting line-up. Of course with two teams making up more than half of the Easter Conference's team, that doesn't exactly say a lot about parity in the game. Charles Barkley doesn't think so.
"Not really. He's a good solid player, I like him as a person," Barkley said. "He didn't have a lot of competition. Trying to find an all-star in the Eastern Conference was like going to a bar trying to pick up a bunch of ugly girls. I mean, somebody's got to win."
