Dirk Nowitzki Paul Pierce make All-Star rosters but not Kevin Garnett Tim Duncan 020912 – NBA News | FOX Sports on MSN

Dirk Nowitzki’s streak survives, despite one of the worst seasons of his career.

Two other old stars are no longer All-Stars.

ALL ABOUT ALL-STARS

Dirk, Pierce among reserves

Which starters deserved it?

Oh, brother! Marc Gasol in, Pau out

Nowitzki was chosen Thursday to his 11th straight All-Star game, with coaches overlooking the lowest scoring average since his second NBA season in favor of his long-term excellence.

”It was a tough road back to full health for me, but I am honored that the coaches thought enough of me to make me an All-Star,” Nowitzki said in a statement. ”It has been a privilege to represent the Mavericks organization over the last decade and I look forward to doing it again in Orlando.”

Paul Pierce will join him despite his own slow start caused by a foot injury and was picked for the 10th time.
