Post Up: Dirk With the Dagger

And Jax has been freed!

by Holly MacKenzie/@stackmack

How many of you turned on the Bucks/Mavs game thinking it would be a bust?

I was hoping for a good one and I certainly got it. After seven seconds of anger over the Mavs knocking down Milwaukee, I was able to appreciate the ridiculousness of Dirk’s shot. How can a man who is that tall be that smooth? And how can a man that smooth be so horrifically awkward at doing everything else but dominating in basketball? While the shot was great –and I think we all kind of knew it was going in as soon as he got the ball– his celebration afterward was even better.

The whole game was awesome. Jennings finishing with 25/7/8, but having it in his head that he was shooting three-pointers down the stretch was a page straight out of a former ROY’s personal playbook, but eight games in, I’m still beyond impressed with his game. I also loved seeing Coach Skiles go over to console Jennings after a missed three late. It was an impressive game from Milwaukee who fell behind by as many as 18 in the third, then cut their deficit to three at the end of three thanks to a long ball from Jennings. The fourth and overtime periods were fun, with each team going back and forth and then Dirk saving the Mavericks as his shot bounced, up, up, up and then finally through the net.

Shoutout to J. Kidd for the wild line he threw up, finishing with nine points, 10 rebounds and 17 assists. The Mavs lost Shawn Marion to a sprained ankle in the second quarter. My favorite quote from the game was Jennings as he explained his missed shot in regulation that would have won it for the Bucks:

“I wanted the ball at the last second. I didn’t know Ersan’s man had doubled me. When I looked back at the tape I saw he was wide open for the jump shot. It’s something I’m going to learn from. It’s a long season.”

He will learn. As he learns, so will Ersan Ilyasova who was fantastic, finishing with 19 points and 12 rebounds, hitting 4-for-7 from beyond the arc. He’s snuck up on me, but I like him.

Rashard Lewis was back for the Magic last night. Stephen Jackson was in uniform for the Bobcats as well. I tuned in just in time to catch his first three points as a Bobcat, then flipped over to NBATV to watch the Bucks/Mavericks. The Magic won that game, but I’ve got to say: I drafted Dwight Howard in my fantasy league and he’s not overwhelming me like he did last season. Due to a problem with my stupid firefox I also ended up picking Chris Bosh with my second pick when I was unable to “un-autodraft” and right now, Bosh is the fantasy stud. Funny how that works out sometimes.

Atlanta shawty, indeed. After finding themselves at the top of the power rankings this week, it appeared as though the Hawks didn’t know how to handle being number one, stumbling their way through their match up with the Trailblazers. The game went into overtime as Rudy Fernandez hit a three for the Blazers who outscored Atlanta 27-18 in the fourth. Atlanta woke up in the extra session and came back to take control of the game behind Joe Johnson’s 32 points, eight coming after regulation. Josh Smith pulled down 16 boards as the Hawks outrebounded Portland, 47-37, including a 15-8 advantage on the offensive glass.

As you know, Allen Iverson and the Grizzlies have mutually agreed to end their one-year contract. That’s all I can give you on that right now because I’m still feeling far too jumbled and I’m not quite prepared to work my way through my thoughts on that just yet. I will say, I do not believe Iverson is done.

Hearing Monta Ellis say he doesn’t know who will play defense in Golden State now that SJax is gone… That was funny. If you PLAY in the NBA but somehow have neglected to realize that Raja Bell has built a 10-year career on his reputation as a defender, I don’t even know what to tell you. Where have you been?! Have you read a scouting report? Do you watch your opponents play? I’m sure Monta wasn’t in a great mood after losing Jackson, but damn.

I’m really looking forward to the Denver/Toronto game this evening. Ty Lawson has been added to my must-see rookie list. Rookie point guards. They’re great, aren’t they.

ps… Rodrigue Beaubois….Rodrigue Beaubois…Rodrigue Beaubois….Rodrigue Beaubois.

    Hmm, Dirk’s been hitting the weights (or Holger is making him to 2hour handstands nowadays), looks ripped on the main pic. Oh yeah, To all the usual Slamonline Dirkbashers…. Suck it.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    You know The middle part of Dirk’s surname translates into “joke” in english, right. No-joke-ski, how fitting, cause the guy’s game is no joke nowadays (anyone notice he’s averaging 1.7 blocks a game so far? More than DPOY’s like T-Dunc?)

  • tavoris

    Rodrigue Beaubois is really freaking good…He & Jennings were alot of fun to watch last night. @Darksaber…I’m firmly planted on the Dirk Bandwagon. I’ve been there since he went practically AN ENTIRE SEASON without scoring less than 20 points in a game. His fadeaway is one of the NBA’s unstoppable moves

  • http://fdjksl.com Jukai

    ReDIRKculous! When he hit that shot, I was all over the place hollering! Dirk is clutch, end of story.

  • jk_light

    Ha, great picture!
    and Darksaber, it seems as if more and more people learn to appreciate Dirk’s game on this site now with all the hating attention to Kobe and Bron.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    F dirk.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Dirk got a lucky bounce…that was hardly a dagger.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    2 things, 1st. Monta Ellis, get off your moped for a sec and RECOGNIZE. Dude actually questioned who would now play D besides him. Monta plays D? I think B-Jennings would like to share his thoughts on that. 2nd, why was Luc guarding Dirk on that inbounds play? They just tossed the ball in over him for Dirty to grab. Meanwhile, Bogut was guarding (ahem pushing) Undersized center Drew Gooden. Not clever, skiles. The whole “use big SF’s to harass The german” hardly works anymore.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Did anybody else see Ilyasova’s crazy hands on Dirk?! Ahaha, that was the most hilarious thing I’ve seen on the court in a long time. Made me think of how Sean Avery was going xrazy with his stick in front of Brodeur in the playoffs.

  • jk_light

    And yes, another clutch shot and Game-Winner from Dirk. I’ve seen soooo many in his career already. Probably more than from any other player not named Kobe, MJ or Robert Horry. And like with every Superstar that has the ball in his hands at the end of the game, he also missed some shots.
    As I said before, if one or two possesions went different in the Finals in 06, we would be talking about an unstoppable 7-footer with a ring and one of the best 5 to 10 players in the last decade without people questioning that statement..

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    I love Bryan’s consistency, good one Shia. Hope knicks land the Canswer soon.

  • http://fdjksl.com Jukai

    You guys are right, Dirk’s last shot was a lucky bounce, as was every other shot he took on the way to 32 points. Totally lucky.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    Jennings is the f’n ill son. play wit it.

  • namik

    I agree about Dirk’s celebration. I thought he was going to sit on Barea’s head. Dirk is no joke this year though. Is this what Yao Ming would’ve been like if China let him rest for a summer or two??

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    I’m the driver of the allen iverson to new york bandwagon. Check my $tat$.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    @darksaber I was much worse on twitter.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    Dirk always gets it done in the regular season. No one can deny that. playoffs……..yeah he is a great regular season player. play wit it.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Yeah, i can imagine, Shia. Holly seems to like your tweets though, so that’s cool.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Jukai, get the f’ outta here. No one said his other 30 points were lucky, but that last shot literally bounced 3 times before falling thru the hoop. F*ck a shooters roll too because it had bounced way high off the top of the backboard before falling thru. So yes, lucky bounce. I’m not hating just saying it wasn’t a dagger.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Haha tad. If I was anybody else I would’ve thought that was me.

  • http://fdjksl.com Jukai

    Tad: Calling BS here. It should have gone in, rimmed out, and then bounced back in. It was a great freaking shot, pretty much on target. But because it UNLUCKILY bounced out and then back in, it wasn’t a dagger? Put down the haterade bro.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    DP: i thought you knew ball, man. Please go check Dirk’s playoff stats or for a newer demonstation of a BALLER, check his performane in last season’s 2nd round against Denver. Guess everyone averages 33,11 & 5 against the K-Mart/Nene/Andersen trio.

  • tavoris

    Dirk’s been hitting those shots the same way since his third season. It’s about time we stop calling them “lucky” because they look awkward.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Meh.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I am mad that Brandon’s 3 didn’t fall though.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Uhm…Dark, Dirk has looked like this world beater several other times in his career and you know…..he almost always, ALWAYS show’s up little in the biggest moments so this isn’t new business to the rest of the world. Has he looked fantastic so far this season….sure, no doubt, but so have the Hawks. End of story.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    yeah my bad, darksaber he put up crazy numbers. I thought I saw his team play LA in the western conference finals last year.

  • http://fdjksl.com Jukai

    I’d like to add, if Dirk’s shot HAD rimmed out and not bounced back in, I doubt anyone here would say Dirk was ‘unlucky’ his shot bounced out; but since it sank, Dirk’s lucky. Cool beans.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    They were doubling brandon at half court down the stretch that was intense.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Yeah, DP, i thought i saw that same team beat Orlando in June and throw a parade in Disneyland… Oh, why do i even bother…. Non believers

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    With that being said….it’s sad that Dirk will languish away the rest of his career in Dallas because he deserves to play with another really good player to have a chance to win a title and play in a huge market.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Jukai , nah we just say dirk sucks and move on.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Hey, E’s talking to me again. Thought you hate me cause i praised Kob’s this summer? Nice to see your Dirk dislike is still going strong.

  • http://fdjksl.com Jukai

    Bryan: I know, status quo as usual. Well, in other events, what do you think the odds are that Walsh’ll correct his past mistakes and actually freakin’ sign Ivy to a contract?

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    I like the team so far whitehot, great rookie PG, veteran PG to learn from, good size and athleticism at the 2 & 3, Dirk at the 4/5 with a more dedicated approach to D, and Damp even showed signs of being alive. Too bad they all seem to languish on the IL at some pount of the season.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Jukai, i’m not a Dirk basher on the regular so don’t lump me in with those martians. However, I will definitely bash his taste in women.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    No Dark, I still love you….like I still love Shia….I can’t help both of your stupidity for falling for the Mamba’s charm.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Jukai : there’s no way to predict what the knicks will do. Smart move? Pick him up sell jerseys and tickets and fill the main weakness on the squad which is lack of a scorer. But the knicks run a franchise like they live in the bizarro world so if they don’t sign him ill be less than shocked and really pissed off.

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Hehe, TAD called em martians. Funny. Eboy: soon as the season started, and he started SCREAMING/WOOING for the ball in the post on every posession, my hate resurfaced. Kob’s on a 2 game losing “streak”? Lovely.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Darksaber should savor this moment, although it’s obviously not the first time Dirk has played clutch. Now that Dirk is no longer being compared to Larry Bird, I can fully enjoy his game.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    And the Hawks got the win, but I was unsatisfied with their play.
    Z might have been right about their offense.

  • jk_light

    “he almost always, ALWAYS show’s up little in the biggest moments so this isn’t new business to the rest of the world.”
    What are the biggest moments? Besides the Finals in 06, is it the first round in 07 against Golden State or the first round in 08 against NO because he didn’t retaliate against West (and yes, at least he shpuld have shoed him away)? Or are big moments the EPIC secound reound against San Antonio where he scored like 37 in Game 7 with the points to force OT. Or the Western Finals against Phoenix where he put up 50 points. Or the second round against Denver where he had the averages Darksaber already mentioned. Or the Semi-Final of the European Championship where he beat Spain in the last seconds???

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    Has Brandon Jennings been hanging out with Chris Childs? The master of the rushed 3, when you only need a 2.
    @Jukai…”It should have gone in, rimmed out, and then bounced back in. It was a great freaking shot, pretty much on target.” …C’mon player, that was the exact definition of a lucky bounce.

  • http://fdjklf.com Jukai

    … no, a lucky bounce would be a shot you aim to swoosh but gets overshot and hits the backboard and banks in. The shot Dirk got was on the money, but tweaked the side of the basket at the EXACT angle where instead of falling down, it bounced to the side, rimmed up in the air, then fell back it.
    Lucky it fell back in? Yeah. Unlucky it didn’t swoosh? Very. Not a dagger? That’s baloney.

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Another dagger in the mouths of all those dirkbashers! Barring injury, the ROY is on lockdown by the new #3

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    @Darksaber, props to the ‘canswer’, never heard that before

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    Word? I didnt know u had broke down the EXACT angles.
    Allow me to Quote you, if i may: “Lucky it fell back in? Yeah.” Theeeeeeeeerefore…….Lucky shot. and it didnt just bounce up and come back down, it rimmed out bounced high OFF THE GLASS and went it. Its still a dagger, because it won the game. Lukcy bounce none the less.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    jk light, your idea of big moments and mine differ slightly.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    I like how he jk light said “aside from” and named off some of the worst choking in nba history. Yeah aside from there he almost always plays well on the big stage haha.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    I have to disagree here, Jukai. When your shot gets that much rim before going down, it’s a lucky bounce because you weren’t dead eye by any means. Dirk is cold though. I’m starting to forgive him for letting Miami and GState take his manhood. No matter how many buzzer beaters he hit during the reg. season, those two series will always be part of his legacy. Unless he wins a ‘ship, of course.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    Nah Z, even then.

  • jk_light

    Sure he failed in the Golden State Series but it wasn’t all on him as the Coach was the first to make a mistake and nearly everybody else played really bad. And in the Finals he didn’t choke like some of you see it in my opinion. And they were the favorites against Miami because he played so great before.
    And I can say that he is not perfect amd missed some good oppotunities but who didn’t. Sometimes I’m missing that killer instinct with Dirk too but he did so much and had so much success that I don’t want him to be like someone else. He already is one of the best players in the world in the last ten years and that while being more down to earth than 90% of the other guys. Even though I like the skills of players like Kobe, Bron and Wade, Dirk makes it easier for me to root for him

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Why are peeps even bothering to say lucky bounce? It wasn’t a bad shot that somehow went in (thats the definition of a lucky shot). he absorbed contact, then let go a fadeaway J, all in the clutch. None of them easy to do even for pro’s. It bounced around in rim several times before it jumped out, so equally people could argue it was unlucky if it had popped out and not gone back in… so wtf?

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Oh hang on, wait, it could be that you haven’t actually seen the shot?!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Am I the only one that doesn’t understand the logic behind how a lucky bounce would necessarily have to be ‘unlucky’ if it had not gone in? An unlucky bounce is when your shot is halfway down then pops back out.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Dirk’s shot was halfway down, popped out, hit high on the glass, then dropped straight through.
    The only way you get that kind of bounce is if you’re a good shooter.
    And be honest, if you were watcing the game, which I was, you fully expected Dirk to hit that shot. I knew he was gonna hit before he even turned because of who was guarding him.
    Dirk has failed in the past, and he hasn’t always been tough. But, dude has also hit a LOT of clutch shots. I think he’s a tad soft, but he can play with pretty much any forward in the league. He has his own moves that are unstoppable, and even if I don’t think they are the moves a 7-footer should rely on, he’s damn good at them.

  • steve-io

    peeps don’t know how to play ball if they said it was unlucky it didn’t go in. If it didn’t hit straight net, it’s a lucky shot. not to hurt any of these dawgs feelings that don’t even play ball saying that sh!t. peace

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I agree with Allen. Meanwhile…..Brandon Jennigs just scored again.

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Its relatively it simple, Dirk put a little too much spin on the ball hence the pop out; but if you think that reaction (the erratic 3rd bounce) was normal, normal meaning thats what would predomiantly happen if the shot was taken again and again and again then… doh!! more often than not, with the same parameters (distance from net, arc of shot, spin of ball) the ball would have gone in, so please, genuinely explain to me, in the name of phsyics, how that is it remotely fortutious if the ball would go in more often than it would not?! That bounce was an anomaly, thats how it would have been viewed unlucky by some…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Eboy
    Dude finished with 25, 8 and 7.
    That’s damn impressive even in a loss. And he almost hit that late three, he was just a little short because he rushed his shot.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    360
    Luck is a combinatin of probability and best outcome.
    Just because something is improbable doesn’t make it “lucky.”
    It would have to be improbable and fortuitous.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Jennings played a lot of games in italy last year but not 82 does he sputter at the end of the year this year? I hope not I’d like to see him put up iverson-esque rookie numbers 23 and 8 or even 22 and 6 would be superb.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    In the same sense, you cannot call that shot a ‘dagger’.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Or maybe because it won the game you can…..ahhh….whatever.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    My Pistons play the Lakers tonight and i’m happy because the Lakers are struggling right now but i’m also scared because they will be playing pissed off from the latest losses.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Hey tad how do you feel they’re shaping up so far?charlie v needs to watch some old rodman tapes dudes got no rebounding.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    By rebounding do you mean eyebrows?

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Tad that shot most certainly was a dagger… to my HEART! haha I wanted the Bucks to get that game so badly.

  • http://slamonline.com Adam Fleischer

    Some of those shots Ilyasova was putting up made me ask ‘What are you thinking?’ but then a bunch of em ended up going in. Dude seems like a pretty nice player. Curious to watch more of him.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    BTW, When did Sheed become a poor man’s Matt Bonner?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Shia: Charlie V has not impressed me so far, at all. I mean, dude can shoot and he can put the ball in the basket, but he has to be the softest 7-footer I have seen on the Pistons. Mehmet Okur looks like Oakley compared to him. His rebounding and boxing out is god-awful. He fails to move his feet very much on defense. I need Ben Wallace to stomp a foot in his a$$ and get him to play with more intensity.
    Other than that, i’ve been pleasantly surprised with the Pistons so far. They are 5-5 but have not been blown out and seem to playing hard every night. Injuries to Tay and Rip haven’t helped.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Hi Holly! We are gunning for your boys tonight.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    Even stuckey looks good tad and not to bring up a sore subject but if they let iverson play the way they let bg play while retaining sheed for his rebounding and interior defense last year would have been a hell of a lot different.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    ‘It was a little lucky at the end,’ Nowitzki said. ‘I thought it was going to swish, then when it rattled off the rim, it seemed like it was in the air forever. The bounce obviously was lucky. But it dropped in and we’ll take it.’ That settles that.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I agree Shia, to an extent. However, the big difference between AI and BG is that BG doesn’t care about coming off the bench. Ben Wallace is doing an admirable job on the boards so far. As for Stuckey his defense has greatly improved. I’m saying he may make all defensive team this season his defense is that good. I am also happy with his jumper so far. You can tell he has been working on his J during the summer.

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    @AllenP, dude i think you misinterpreted what I meant…. what i’m saying is, in response to those who think it was, his shot wasn’t lucky… for a start it takes a hell of a lot of skill to absorb contact then an shoot an accurate fadeaway with less than a few seconds on the clock. Perhaps, if you’re inclined that way, you can say his 3rd bounce (when the ball jumped out) was lucky, in the sense it dropped straight back into the basket. But the fact remains, that very same bounce was a freak of physics, so therefore I rightly argued that by the very same measoure, people could say he was unlucky if he missed because normally the ball would have rattled around the rim and dropped in. In short, im telling the Dirk naysayers to stfu because such comments are needless; dude could cure aids and haters would still complain about it

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    @Myles, Dirk says the bounce was lucky. I said the bounce was open to interpretation whether it was lucky or not, its subjective. Considering normally such shots would have continued to rattle between the rim and drop I wouldnt consider that bounce lucky, because the end result is the same. But for the people saying his “shot” was lucky I’m explaining it wasn’t, they act as if he just jacked up some complete no hoper yet by some otherwordly chance it went in?!?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Dirk lovers are too sensitive. I wasn’t hating on Dirk or his game, I know dude can straight ball. I just had the opinion that the shot got a lucky bounce. The degree of difficulty to get off the shot was certainly impressive but it looked like a lot of his shots he takes.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    That’s because dirk is such a p*ssy it trickles down to his fans tad.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    What’s amazing with Dirk is that the shot you would want a 7 footer to take if you’re defending him (an off the dribble turn around fadeaway from the top of the key) is actually his go-to move. You’re basically just hoping that he’ll is because there is no way you’ll prevent him from getting it off.

  • tavoris

    maybe people should stop looking at Dirk like a power forward. He is a small forward that happens to be really tall. Funny thing is, T-Mac is taller than his listed height-as is Durant…both are pretty close to 6’11″.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    My bad. I actually agree with you. I obviously misunderstood what you wrote.

  • a_whiteman

    I’m so incredibly sick of these ignorant, so called basketball fans who day dirk only gets it done in the regular season. First off he is the ONLY guy to lead his team to eliminate the spurs on their homecourt since duncan arrived. He has lost in the first rond twice in seasons, and the man ups almost every statistoc imaginable in the postseason. How many guys can say HALF of that. People just point to the g state debacle andsay he doesn’t produce, even that series he averaged 20 and 10. Dirk is the muthaf@!$!@ man show some damn respect for the best european player ever and the 3rd best pf of this decade.

  • Hoodsnake

    Luck is being being ready when the oppertunity presents itself. Dirk was ready…

    Who does not understand Dirk is as good as ANYBODY in this league, also as clutch and as good a playoff performer as anyone not named bron n kobe maybe, is JUST STUPID or very dumb!! HE LITERALLY CARRIES THAT TEAM ON HIS BACK…THAT TEAM WITHOUT HIM IS SH!T…oh and Beaubois was an excelent pick for the Mavs..also, THE TRAIL BLAZERS WERE ROBBED BY THE REFS IN ATL..I said it

    I remember that, Zo was not even faking like he was going to report to TO. With that said, there are only so many contenders. Some of these vets will have to fall back and play with a struggling team if they want a check.

    Allen, read before you comment. Raja is opting for season ending surgery, and since he is a expiring contract he will never have to be a Warrior. I doubt he will even go to the games.

    Raja bell does not have that kind of swag. No way he dictates who he plays for if I was nellie I’d tell him to go f*ck himself.

    I want Raja on Phoenix. Sure, we’d have like, five shooting guards, but I don’t care. Come back home, Raja!!!

    DB…Just wondering what playoff games have you EVER watched? Apparently NONE with Dirk Nowitzki. So to inform you oh ignorant one….Dirk averages 25 and 11 post season. Only 4 other players in NBA history have matched that. Want names??? Here they are old fool who opens ones mouth and removes all doubt…Petit, Shaq, Elgin and Hakeem. THAT’S IT. Those 4 and DIRK. And you think the Uberman isn’t clutch? Dude…you’re obviously majorly overworking that pea brain of yours. And you obviously don’t know a damn thing about basketball much less ever had the privilege of watching Nowitzki do his thing.

    @Db….Just wondering if you EVER watch any games especially postseason? Ever watched Dirk play? Know that in the post season Dirk averages for his career 25 and 11? Know that there are only 4 other guys EVER in the NBA to match that? Know who these 4 guys are?? Let me give you the answer ole ignorant one… Petit, Shaq, Elgin and Hakeem. THAT’S IT. BESIDES (OF COURSE) DIRK. Ever heard of the saying “it’s better to be thought of as a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt?” You sir (and EVERYONE else who says the Uberman isn’t clutch) HAVE REMOVED EVERY SHRED OF DOUBT THAT COULD EVER BE REMOVED.

    You should read what Raja said. One, he doesn’t know whether the surgery is season ending. Nobody does. Two, he only opted to have the surgery because he decided he didn’t want to play for Golden State.
    This is a power move by Raja.

    BETCATS, it was a career high, but that doesn’t negate Flip’s ability to get buckets.
