Report: Dirk Nowitzki selected to 2014 All-Star team

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Mavericks will be well represented in New Orleans with Dirk's well-deserved selection to the All-Star team.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Dirk Nowitzki will be making his 12th appearance representing the Dallas Mavericks as a Western Conference All-Star reserve:

This is well deserved for Dirk, as he's having quite the season this year. If you weren't around earlier today, the MMB staff debated whether we even wanted Dirk in the game. It seems most of our community members were vocally in favor of Dirk's selection, and it seems they've been thoroughly validated.

Though it would certainly be nice to find a beach and get some extra rest, the All-Star break will still be a lighter week for Dirk and get him a little extra rest. Tim Cato, Jonathan Tjarks and myself will be in New Orleans for All-Star weekend, so we'll have you more than covered on all things Dirk.

More on this, and staff reactions, as things become official. Until then, CONGRATS DIRTY! You  have more than earned it.

UPDATE: well, this seems pretty official.
