Today, Dirk Nowitzki received the NBA MVP award. I know we have been critical of Dirk and the Mavs, but I am still proud of him for earning the award. He had an amazing season, shooting over 50% from the field, over 40% for 3’s, and over 90% from the line, leading the Mavericks to one of the greatest regular seasons in NBA history.
Dirk is a hell of a player, and I believe he can help lead the Mavericks to a future championship. I still don’t think he can do it on his own, and that Cuban should try and get a premier point guard (Chauncey Billups or Jason Kidd maybe?)
Congratulations, Dirk! Enjoy this day, and use it as more motivation for the 2007-2008 season.
