DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Barring an unforeseen circumstance, Dirk Nowitzki will not be participating in his 14th All-Star game. So the NBA decided to give him another opportunity to be honored at All-Star Weekend. 

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, Nowitzki has been invited to compete in the 3-point contest at All-Saturday Night in Charlotte. 

It's not known if the 21-year veteran will accept the invitation, but Stein appears to indicate that he will.

This will be the sixth time Nowitzki will participate in the shootout. He won the competition in 2006.
