Dirk Nowitzki

Dirk Nowitzki asks: Do you really think I’m done?

5 Comments

Mark Cuban tweeted out this new Mavericks ad on Friday… and it’s pretty good. So we’re passing it along.

And no, I don’t think he’s done. I expect a bounce back season for Nowitzki, who showed he still was an elite scorer in this league last season when he finally got healthy. If Monta Ellis can just give up the rock a little more than he seems comfortable doing, if Samuel Dalembert can be healthy for more than 60 games, if Jose Calderon can be Jose Calderon, I think this is the eight seed in the West. I think Nowitzki can lead Dallas back to the playoffs.

That’s as far as the story goes, but with this roster making the playoffs would speak to how well Nowitzki is playing.

It’s hard to find a new low for defense in an NBA All-Star Game.

But Stephen Curry was laying down on defense. Literally.

The result was a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk and Curry ending up in the highlight anyway.

Hey, DeAndre Jordan, where was this Saturday night during the Dunk Contest?

The Clippers’ big man threw down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from Russell Westbrook during the All-Star Game Sunday that was better than anything he did on Saturday night. Enjoy
