Dirk Nowitzki – The Classiest Guy In The NBA



Dirk Nowitzki – The Classiest Guy In The NBA


NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar recently started to ‘disrespect’ other NBA stars. This time, his words Gongfu Tea Cup directed towards Dirk Nowitzki.

Karrem said:


“Dirk Nowitzki’s shot is very hard to block, but I don’t think he was able to have a dominant career because he couldn’t do other things.

He was like a ‘one trick pony'”


Once again, Dirk is nothing but all class, responding:

“I’m not sure why. I guess he’s not a big fan of my game, which is OK. But I like to think I was dominant at some point — especially on the offensive end — of my career, in my prime. It is what it is. People have opinions. He’s one of the greatest ever to play the game, so I’m not going to get in a war of words. I respect his opinion. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but it is what it is.”

“I don’t want to get into throwing stats around, because his are obviously way better than mine. But I don’t think you can average 25 and 10 over your playoff career and not be dominant. I don’t think you can get to sixth in scoring in this league over 18 years and not be at some point at least somewhat dominant.”


Note: Petit, Olajuwon, Baylor and Nowitzki are the only players in NBA history who have averaged 25-10 in the playoffs, what indeed makes it pretty special!


Stay the way you are Dirk, we love you!
