Jan. 28, 2003: Blazers accept All-Star snub


by: TRIBUNE FILE PHOTO: JIM CLARK - Rasheed Wallace of the Trail Blazers contests a referee's call.The Trail Blazers take it matter-of-factly when no one on the club — including power forward Rasheed Wallace — is selected to take part in NBA All-Star Weekend, either in the game or the slam dunk contest or the 3-point shooting contest or the rookie-sophomore game.

Portland is third in the NBA Western Conference, with Wallace, Scottie Pippen, Bonzi Wells and Ruben Patterson leading the way.

Wallace has no comment on the selections.
