Though Dirk Nowitzki wasn’t clamored for 2019 NBA All-Star as much as Dwyane Wade in his farewell season, both will be making appearances in the event thanks to Adam Silver. The two are special roster additions that will participate in the festivities for the last time in the twilight of their careers.
How will it all work?
Both Dirk and Wade County will be chosen in a special third round of the All-Star draft by captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo after the starter and reserve selections. It will be shocking of LBJ doesn’t pick his buddy Dwyane.
Commissioner Silver said this about the legendary duo:
“As a global celebration of basketball, our All-Star Game is an ideal setting to salute these first-class NBA champions and Finals MVPs”
