Aside from Carey, do we have a "star"?

That would be a terrible way of assigning these titles. There are plenty of players who play in the all-star game who are not stars and are only there because each team must be represented.
A star is a player who is expected to make an all-star team regardless of what team he is on. A superstar is simply a star among stars, one of a handfull of players who the all-star game is marketed around.
