Rondo Struggles in Early All-Star Voting

Despite his recent triple-double and the fact that most of the Eastern Conference has been Rondo’d this season, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is struggling in early All-Star voting results.

On Thursday the first returns of the 2009 NBA All-Star ballots were announced, with Dwight Howard leading all votes (775,933) and Kobe Bryant leading the Western Conference (719,252). Kevin Garnett ranks fourth in the East (495,514) behind LeBron James (643,786) and Dwyane Wade (623,311).

Of the five Celtics starters on the ballot, Rondo is the only one not in top 10 voting at his position. Guard Gilbert Arenas, who has not played a game this season, has received nearly 65,000 votes. Below are the results for Eastern Conference voting:
