Butler, Jamison, Arenas and Haywood on the All-Star BallotPosted on November 11, 2008
The official 2009 NBA All-Star ballot was unveiled today during a special tip-off event in Phoenix, the Official Host City of NBA All-Star 2009. Four Washington Wizards are featured on this year’s ballot; former All-Stars Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison and center Brendan Haywood. Arenas is a three-time All-Star (2005, 2006, 2007) who was voted in by the fans as a starter in the 2007 game. Butler, who made his first career All-Star appearance in 2007, and Jamison, who made his first career All-Star appearance in 2005, were both named All-Stars for last year’s game in New Orleans.
In other news, the Wizards also held practice today from 11-1pm and from 12-1 it was open to Wizards ticket holders. In today's scrimmage the vets held on to win by 2 as Caron Butler hit a fadeaway jumper over Dom McGuire with 2.5 seconds left to give the starters the win. Antonio Daniels did not practice and his status for tomorrow is still unknown.
