The Cavaliers were outraged last week when guard Mo Williams was left off the NBA All-Star team by the Eastern Conference coaches. In response they staged a protest in the only way they could, by issuing a series of loud complaints through the media for days on end.

But it reached a new level Thursday when NBA Commissioner David Stern replaced injured Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson with Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics, again slighting Williams.

Ben Wallace was right when he called Mo originally being passed over for the All-Star Game a ‘shamockery,’ ” said Cavaliers owner Daniel Gilbert in an e-mailed statement. “But not naming him as the natural and obvious replacement for the unfortunately injured Jameer Nelson is stupidiculous, idillogical and preposterageous.”
