The all-star voting is even more of a popularity contest!
If shoe commercials and ESPiN highlights make the player, then Dirk is one of the worst players ever to lead their team to 6 consecutive 50+ win seasons.
The MVP is also a popularity contest. If you dont understand how certain players who dont get the media attention that others do can be slighted in that situation, then it's not even worth us having this conversation.
Dirk Nowitzki is the BEST power forward in the NBA for the second consecutive season. He'll be an all-NBA first teamer for the second year in a row. That makes him one of the top 5 players in the world, and much better than an "all-star reserve". You are truly a goober. Stick to the schtick.
