Dirk Nowitzki Replaces Anthony Davis in All-Star Game

Dirk Nowitzki is the latest replacement reserve added to the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. The league announced that Dirk would be replacing Pelicans forward Anthony Davis on the Western Conference All-Stars following the news that AD would be out with a shoulder injury.

This is Dirk’s 13th All-Star selection, he is averaging 18.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season for the Mavs who are currently sitting at fifth place in the West.


The Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki will fill the latest spot opened by the withdrawal of injured Pelicans’ forward Anthony Davis.
Nowitzki, who has posted averages of 18.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in his 17th NBA season, will be making his 13th All-Star appearance in the past 14 seasons. The highest-scoring player born outside the United States in NBA history, Nowitzki surpassed Moses Malone for seventh place on the league’s all-time scoring list last month.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who earned the right to coach the West squad because the Warriors clinched the best record in the conference through games played before Feb. 1, will determine Davis’ replacement in the starting lineup.
