Will Dirk Nowitzki ever appear in another All-Star Game? His boss would bet on it. “I don’t have any doubt,” Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said. “There’s no doubt in my mind at all.” Nowitzki’s streak of 11 consecutive All-Star bids was snapped when the reserve selections were announced this week. That came as no surprise, considering Nowitzki missed the first 27 games of the season while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and continues to try to work his way back into franchise-player form.
