Chris Bosh named as Rajon Rondo's replacement, Kyrie Irving will not start

This isn't really unexpected but Erik Spoelstra made it official on Friday. Chris Bosh will start the All Star Game in the place of Rajon Rondo. Rondo was voted in as a starter in the Eastern Conference, but obviously will not play due to his torn ACL.

It would have made sense for Kyrie Irving to start in Rondo's place. Rondo is a point guard. Kyrie Irving is a point guard. Makes sense, right? But yeah, Spoelstra decided not to do that. Instead, the Heat will have three starters in Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Kyrie Irving will come off the bench and rain hellfire down on the world to get his revenge, I assume.
