Why do we need an all star at PG when most championship teams don't have an all star at PG?

We can't put together a team of all stars, and I'd rather have an all star on the wing and an all star in the front court.

Besides, the only all star PG we have an outside chance at signing is Steve Nash, who most likely won't be playing when DD, JV, Ed are in their primes, and there doesn't appear to be too many all star PGs in the draft.
