if dirk was black. i bet you guys would think hes better then kg,cwebb, wallace..ect. im not sure why you guys dont give Dirk his dues..this guy is a flat out baller. on nba tonight they said he was right behind daddy and duncan. i bet you if you ask all the GM's they would easily say hes top 5 in the nba. the Mavs was one of the worst nba teams in history for most of the 90's. the mavs now with dirk hes made nash better and the dallas mavericks one of the top teams. this guy is only 24. the numbers he put vs KG in the first round was sick..33.3pts 15.66 rbs 8-11 72.7% 3's. i still think its harder to score points when you have some many scores on your team. (nash, finley, NVE, and some what raef.). KG is awesome but i dont see him getting any better. Dirk brings something new every year.
