Dirk Nowitzki: His coach, Rick Carlisle, actually said the following quote – “In my opinion, he’s a top 10 player in NBA history because of the uniqueness of his game and how he’s carried this franchise on his back for over a decade.” Did Carlisle forget to say a “Top 10 player who has never won a title?” Or did he mean “Top 10 player to defend because of the uniqueness of his game?” Dirk’s a Top 50 player in NBA history, and maybe even cracks the top 35. Remember the draft day trade that sent him to Dallas for Robert “Tractor” Traylor? Dirk scored more points in 2006 (2,151) than Traylor scored in his career (2,085). [via Hangtime]
