HOUSTON -- Dwight Howard joked about the need to "save centres" a day after Houston's big man wasn't named a starter in this year's All-Star game.

The league changed the voting last year to eliminate a separate category for centres, leaving the game's largest players to compete with small and power forwards for a spot on the team. No centre was named a starter for next month's game in New Orleans.

Howard has been unhappy with the change since last year when he made a silly video asking people to help save the centres. The video, which can be seen on YouTube, plays off the popular ASPCA commercial where Sarah McLachlan sings "Angel" and asks for donation to help abused animals.

In Howard's public service announcement, a song to the tune of "Angel," with lyrics about famous centres, plays in the background while Howard touts his fictional "Center Center for Centers."

He joked before Friday's game against Memphis that the world needs centres.
