This might sound a bit selfish, but Brandon Knight wants to be an All-Star.

His reasons, however, aren't selfish.

Knight figures that if he is an All-Star, it likely means the Pistons have turned things around.

"I am not going to sit here and say I don't want to be an All-Star," said Knight, a rookie. "My goals are to be as good as I can possibly be. If that is All-Star status, then I will take it.

"But mostly for me it is making sure that this team is competing for a playoff spot and eventually a championship run."
