Nowitzki: I don’t deserve to be an All-Star

Dirk Nowitzki stated that he doesn’t believe he deserves to be selected for the All-Star Game for the 11th consecutive year.

Nowitzki hasn’t had the best start of the season and admitted that talent is piling up in his positions and that there are many guys that deserve to be selected before him.

“Averaging whatever, 15, 16 points, I don’t think you should be an All-Star. But we’ll just have to wait and see. I think there is a lot of great young talent in this league that deserves to go. I think LaMarcus Aldridge has been stiff the last couple of years. He’s a great young player, fun to watch. You know Blake and Love are playing great. There is a lot of talent at my position.”

Nowitzki is averaging 17.2 points per game this season.
