Point guards Deron Williams(notes) of Utah, Chicago’s Derrick Rose(notes) and Boston’s Rajon Rondo(notes) will make their All-Star Game debuts next month in Dallas, sources said Thursday.

Williams, Rondo and Rose top the list of reserves chosen by the league’s coaches to participate in the Feb. 14 game at Cowboys Stadium. The names won’t be made official until Thursday night, but Yahoo! Sports has obtained the list of reserves.

Besides Rondo and Rose, the East roster includes Boston’s Paul Pierce(notes), Toronto’s Chris Bosh(notes), Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace(notes) and Atlanta’s Joe Johnson(notes) and Al Horford(notes).

The West reserves are the New Orleans’ Chris Paul(notes), the Lakers’ Pau Gasol(notes), Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant(notes), Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki(notes), Memphis’; Zach Randolph(notes) and Portland’s Brandon Roy(notes).

Among the notable candidates left off the team are the Los Angeles Clippers’; Chris Kaman(notes), New York’s David Lee(notes) and Denver’s Chauncey Billups(notes).

No Landry or Brooks.  Though I am absolutely stoked to see that Derrick Rose and Deron Williams made it.  An All-Star game is only as good as its point guards, and playground skills are an absolute must for entertainment value.  No disrespect to the guys last year, but the game was unwatchable, and largely due to that reason.
