Jamaal Magloire was certainly an odd selection to join the Eastern Conference All-Stars, given that he was never an especially good player. He, perhaps more than anyone else, benefited from the dearth of capable big men in the East. While the West was trotting out Hall of Famers like Shaq, KG, and Duncan, the East could merely counter with decent-enough guys like Ben Wallace and Jermaine O'Neal. Magloire stepped into this void, and while it may have been absurd that he was selected in the first place, he actually ended up playing really well as he led the East with 19 points and eight rebounds.
