NBA stiffing fans with stars’ absence

There were seven All-Star-level NBA players on the Celtics and Heat in the building atop North Station last night, not counting Juwan Howard, whose expiration date has passed. Guess how many of them actually suited up for the game? One.

No Kevin Garnett. No Rajon Rondo. No Ray Allen. No LeBron James. No Dwyane Wade. No Chris Bosh. Nope, none of the above, all of whom are injured to some degree.
