Dirk Nowitzki is going through some changes and that's because he's not a part of All-Star Weekend. Dirk has been part of the midseason showcase every year since he started as a rookie in 1999.
The New York Times has a quote from Dirk:
“Basically, my whole career I went,” said Nowitzki, a 3-point competition participant in 2000 and 2001 before playing in 11 consecutive All-Star games. “It’s the only thing I know. So this will be something different.”
