Hey, NBA: Dirk Would Like News of His Suspensions Sooner

by Marcel Mutoni

As you know, Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki was recently suspended after he elected to introduce his right elbow to Matt Harpring’s ruggedly handsome face. Disco Dirk wasn’t necessarily mad at the League office’s decision; it was the way they went about it that got under his skin.

According to the former MVP, Stu Jackson wasn’t man enough to contact him personally (he had some lowly assistant do his dirty work) so they could discuss what took place in Utah on Friday night. From NBA.com:

“They couldn’t tell us Saturday because the investigations took so long, so I thought that was a joke,” Nowitzki said after the Dallas’ record-setting rally to beat Minnesota 107-100 Tuesday night.

“He never called me,” Nowitzki said of Jackson. “I was going to tell him a few stories, but nowadays it’s NBA security, some assistant or whatever, and they just write down what you have to say. They can really scratch it out, because they do what they do anyway. I don’t know why they interview you anymore. They walk you through the whole spiel and what you were thinking, what you saw and you tell them, and then you get suspended anyways. I might not even call them back next time.”

I certainly hope you’re listening, Stu. Dirk better get a personal call before noon today announcing that his next paycheck is going to be lighter thanks to his criticism of you and your methods.

    “And to top it off, that hot stone massage i was suppose to get with news of each suspension was more than lackluster”

    Kirilenko should have gotten suspended for that hideous flop. What happened to the whole anti-flop initiative that the Sternbot was talking about before the season anyway?

    You all realize that this entire incident — from the elbow to his criticism of Stu and hinting at a “next time” — is his response to you guys calling him soft, right?
    He had enough of the criticism on SLAMonline boards and this was answer.

    His response should be playing like his MVP season. Not throwing elbows and complaining in the press

    Hey Steve Rogers wannabe, get your german spelling right if you wanna go off, it’s Fräulein… Oh and comeback win from minus 29? Sweeeet. i haven’t seen Dirk Werner blow by guys for so many layups/dunks in a while, stay aggresive big boy. That’s the spirit. Oh and JET belongs in the ASG after that shooting exhibition, wow.

    Hey I think the elbow showing Dirk is alot better than the whip your dirty hands on me WEST Dirk from a short time ago.

    Dirk shouldn’t be allowed play NBA games in the state of Utah. I think he decked Kirilenko and was suspended last year, and now this?
