to the rookie game.
I'm kinda curious about the Eastern center situation. I agree with
John that Miller's the best guy out there, but the coaches probably
won't see that. I'm guessing that Wallace (listed on the ballot as a
center) will be selected as the starter, but I haven't seen any
updated voting results. Ilgauskas, if he's still ambulatory at that
point, will probably be picked as the reserve.
