I hate to turn this thread into a race issue, but if Dirk can push the Mavs to an NBA Championship, it would be huge for the NBA. He should be starting the A-S team, but I believe he's 3rd in the voting and I don't think he'll make up the ground.
He wont start the All Star game, and that's okay. Unless China starts getting highlight reels of Dirk shoved down their throats, its not going to happen. Dirk doesnt have the hype machine behind him to drive interest.
Personally, I would rather see Dirk get a week off to rest his ankle.
