The Hawks’ terrific play so far this season was further validated Tuesday when sharpshooter Kyle Korver was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team to replace injured Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.
Of course, Korver won’t be Atlanta’s only representative in Brooklyn for All-Star Weekend on Feb. 13-15. In case you didn’t know that, the Hawks decided to issue a friendly reminder.[tweet https://twitter.com/ATLHawks/status/565308825998487556 align=’center’]
Thanks for the update.
Point guard Jeff Teague and forwards Al Horford and Paul Millsap also were selected as reserves for the Eastern Conference, making Atlanta the most well-represented team at the All-Star Game. The honor certainly is well-deserved, as the Hawks own the conference’s best record at 43-10 through Tuesday night.
DeMarre Carroll must be feeling a bit left out, though, as the only Hawks starter who didn’t earn the All-Star distinction. Atlanta’s starters earned an incredible honor last week when all five were named co-players of the month in the East after their team went 17-0 in the month of January.
