NBA All-Star Game Shooting Stars: Jerry Stackhouse Replaces Joe Johnson

Excellent.

Jerry Stackhouse joins Steve Smith and Lindsey Harding in defending Atlanta's title from last year. Awesome.

Stackhouse came into the league during Smitty's first season in Atlanta. Joe Johnson was 14 years old. Lindsey Hardin was 11. Consider this a huge fun factor upgrade.

From the official NBA release, which also includes Rajon Rondo replacing Stephen Curry in the Skills Competition due to injury:

ORLANDO, Feb. 24, 2012 - Boston Celtics guard and 2012 NBA All-Star Rajon Rondo will replace injured Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (strained tendon, right foot) in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

Atlanta Hawks forward Jerry Stackhouse will replace injured teammate Joe Johnson (left knee tendinitis) in Haier Shooting Stars.

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge and Haier Shooting Stars will be televised live nationally as part of the NBA All-Star Saturday Night presented by State Farm, which will also feature the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest and the Sprite Slam Dunk. TNT and ESPN Radio's national coverage will begin at 8 p.m. EST from Amway Center.
