Dirk Nowitzki ranks 13th in West frontcourt All-Star voting

1/4/2013

Dirk Nowitzki's streak of All-Star berths is certain to end after he missed the season's first 27 games, but he's still getting a little love from the voting public.

Nowitzki ranks 13th among Western Conference frontcourt players with 106,623 votes, the most of any Maverick. No Dallas guard ranks among the top 10 in the West's backcourt balloting.

The top three in West frontcourt voting: Kevin Durant (1,088,797), Dwight Howard (716,671), Blake Griffin (593,024).

Nowitzki had been selected to the last 11 All-Star games, although never by fan vote. Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan are the only active players with more All-Star appearances.
