Carmelo Anthony wasn't named an all-star starter by the fans. The Northwest leading Denver Nuggets will have to wait to see if the coaches name either Melo or Billups to the squad.

Nene will probably be left out in the cold, but it will be a shame if the Nuggets are completely forgotten by the league.

I would almost say at this point that it's more of an honor to be named a reserve by the coaches than it is to win the casual fan vote.

But not having an all-star this year (not likely to happen) could give Denver a nice big fat chip on their shoulder the rest of the way. I hope Melo feels that way already and carries that over on to the court.
