Wade, Nowitzki honored as special additions to All-Star Game

Anthony Davis may never suit up again for the Pelicans but he was selected to represent them as an All Star reserve. More

"I appreciated my fans for voting for me, but I didn't want to be put in position to take a roster spot from someone who's getting their first opportunity to go to the All-Star Game or their second or third", Wade said.

The NBA All-Star Draft will take place on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. ET.

Nowitzki is now playing in his 21st season, all with the Mavericks, making him the first player in National Basketball Association history to do so.

A 13-time NBA All-Star selection before this season, Nowitzki ranks seventh on the NBA's all-time points list (31,275) and is the career scoring leader among global players.

Sevilla wing back Guilherme Arana blasted in a long strike in the 66th to give his team hope until Suarez and Messi capped the victory in the final minutes.

The 68th NBA All-Star Game will take place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte on February 17.

His relationship with the Heat organization has had some rough stretches, which led to him playing small stretches of his career with the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he eventually came back to finish his career with the franchise that he carried in his shoulders over the past 15 years. It will be a two-stage process: First, James and Antetokounmpo will divide up the eight other starters (including Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker). So far this season, the 37-year-old is averaging 13.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. The 2006-07 league MVP is averaging just 4.4 points in 20 appearances as he continues to make way for younger talent on the Dallas Mavericks. Nowitzki is heading to the All-Star Game for the 14th time, and has yet to officially say if his 21st season with the Mavericks will be the final one of his career.

Wade has really made the most of his farewell tour. He was honored with the 2012-13 Seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist Award for his Wade's World Foundation's efforts to support community-based organizations that promote education, health and social skills for at-risk children.
