In the months since, Allen has approached Harden’s level, which is why the Cavaliers center will replace an injured Harden in the All-Star game.
Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen has been named by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to replace injured Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden on Team LeBron in the 2022 NBA All-Star Game.
Allen is a perfectly fine choice. Milwaukee already has Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton as All-Stars. Trailing the Cavs in the standings, Boston and Toronto already have one All-Star.
Allen and Garland will represent the Cavaliers with All-Star Weekend in Cleveland.
