WHO: Some guys named Dirk Nowitzki, Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and LeBron James, I think.
WHAT: The 2014 NBA All-Star Game
WHERE: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CST
THE STORY: You see, a long time ago, there was this guy from Germany....well, you get where I'm going with this. Tonight, the Mavericks will be well represented as Dirk joins his fellow Western Conference All-Stars to take on LeBron James and some other guys. We will get to see Dirk wearing a sleeved jersey, which as we all know he is pretty excited about. Don't worry too much about what you see out of Dirk tonight. This isn't a game designed for his style of play, or really competitive play in general. Let's all just watch together as the NBA celebrates our guy the right way.
If you haven't checked it out yet, while you wait for the game, Dirk spoke for a while yesterday about All-Star and some other topics. Also, the rest of the Mavs are on vacation and it is truly awesome.
As with yesterday, Tim Cato will be at the game for all your #hotsportstakes on Twitter, and I will be in attendance tonight as well (though not on press row) so I'll have your view from the fan's perspective. We got you covered, faithful readers.
