With the all-Star reserves to be named on Thursday evening, more basketball writers are making a list and checking it twice, thinking they might know what the coaches are thinking. Peter Vecsey of the New York Post thinks that both Vince Carter and Jason Kidd deserve a nod while Greg Anthony of ESPN says only Carter should go. Sean Devaney of the Sporting News says no to both of them. Richard Jefferson in spite of his 24.5 ppg average over the last eight games and solid defense gets no respect.
