Chris Kaman named to All-Star team, replacing Brandon Roy

Kaman NBA Commissioner David Stern named Clippers center Chris Kaman to the All-Star team Monday to replace Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.

It's the first All-Star appearance for Kaman, 27, who is in his seventh season with the Clippers and is averaging a career best in scoring (20.2), plus nine rebounds a game. Kaman was disappointed he wasn't selected by coaches as a reserve to the All-Star team, and he said the Clippers' losing record was probably a factor.

Kaman is the first Clipper to be an All-Star since Elton Brand in 2006.
