Anyone else read the chat/interview he had at dallasbasketball? here's a piece of it...
Source: dallasbasketball.comBy the time we were done exchanging emails, Ric had essentially asserted to me that:
# Dallas would have a harder time replacing Josh Howard than replacing Dirk.
# Billups, Nash and Bryant are more indispensible to their teams than Dirk is to his.
# Dallas is improved on defense for reasons unrelated to Dirk.
# Dirk doesn't do the little things that make his team better in a manner that is vital to Dallas' success.
