Damon Stoudamire of the Trail Blazers says he is "more shocked than disappointed" at being left off the NBA All-Star ballot.

Six Blazers make the voting list, but Stoudamire is one of three Western Conference starting point guards left off. The others: Ron Harper of the Los Angeles Lakers and Jeff McInnis of the L.A. Clippers.

Twenty-four guards in the West are on the ballot.

The Blazers are off to a 5-3 start.
