NEW YORK (AP) -With a late rally, Allen Iverson is an All-Star starter again.
Iverson surged from behind in the fan voting to earn a starting spot in next month's game, a person with knowledge of the results told The Associated Press on Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the official totals weren't to be released until later Thursday.
Iverson's selection was first reported by The Rocky Mountain News, who also reported that Denver teammate Carmelo Anthony earned his first starting nod.
Iverson rallied to pass Tracy McGrady in the final weeks of voting to earn his first start since moving to the Western Conference early last season. He started seven straight All-Star games while playing for Philadelphia, but fell short last year after the 76ers dealt him to the Nuggets in December 2006.
The two-time MVP of the All-Star game will make his ninth appearance on Feb. 17 in New Orleans.
