Also hearing Dirk Nowitzki is a Western Conference All-Star ... and Tim Duncan is not— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) January 30, 2014
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.
Congrats to my guy @swish41. Good guys can and do win. #35 ain't nothing but a number.— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) January 30, 2014
