Posted By Jessica Camerato On January 21, 2009 @ 8:57 am In General | 1 Comment

On Thursday the 2009 NBA All-Star teams will be revealed. While a lack of fan votes has put Rajon Rondo [1]‘€™s selection in question, it was 55 years ago today that another Celtics [2] PG made his mark on the game. On January 21, 1954, Bob Cousy [3] scored 10 of his 20 points in overtime to lead the East to a 98-93 win. It was the first overtime in All-Star history. Cousy won All-Star MVP honors and appeared in 13 All-Star Games over his career.

The 2009 All-Star teams will be announced on TNT prior to the Celtics-Magic game.
