David Lee looks to end Golden State Warriors' All-Star drought

When he worked as a broadcaster, Mark Jackson was adamant that David Lee didn't deserve to be an All-Star with the New York Knicks in 2010. No matter how eye-popping Lee's statistics looked, Jackson said, the power forward played on a bad Knicks team.

Now that Jackson is coaching Lee on the Golden State Warriors, he has changed his tune — but not his reasoning. The Warriors are winning, he said, and Lee has been a big reason why.

With Golden State (23-13) off to its best start in 20 years, Lee might be the leading candidate to end the NBA's longest All-Star drought. The Warriors have not had a player make the team since Latrell Sprewell in 1997.
