NBA All-Star Game 2012: Dirk Nowizki's Seniority On The West Squad Comes With Privileges

Outside of Kobe Bryant, there is no more of an elder statesman on the Western Conference all-star roster than Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks. Nowitzki has been named to 11 consecutive all-star games since making his first one back in 2002, and although this an ideal season up to his usual standards, Dirk is in a position to get a few minutes in the game and relax on the bench when he's good and ready.

That's what seniority will do for you. Here are the your Western Conference all-stars, followed by the Eastern Conference all-stars as the 2012 NBA All-Star Game will begin at 7:30pm.
