“It’s a great feeling, especially being named this way amongst your fans, so many votes,” Rondo said. “It’s humbling and it’s a grateful experience for me.
“To be loved by so many people rooting for me and wanting me to be a starter in the East, it’s a great feeling.”
Rondo garnered 924,180 votes, second only to Dwyane Wade . Rondo will team with Wade, LeBron James , Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett  on the starting five for the East on Feb. 17 in Houston.
This is Rondo’s fourth All-Star selection, being named each year since 2010.
Rondo said he will target KG in the post and is still hoping Paul Pierce  makes it as a reserve.
“I’m a little bit biased but without Paul, we wouldn’t be where we are right now,” Rondo added. “He’s been Mr. Consistent and he’s brought it every night for us. He’s always carried the load or scoring, which we need at times, so I’d definitely consider Paul as well.”
His mission? To end a run of Western Conference dominance in the game.
“I’ll still try to run the show,” Rondo said. “I want to win this year. We haven’t won in a while ‘¦ but we definitely want to win this year.”
