Dirk Nowitzki thrilled with Rajon Rondo’s playoff history

Dirk Nowitzki, like most great players, is always at his best when the stakes are at the highest. In the playoffs, he turns into even more of a beast than he is during the regular season.He sees the same thing from new Dallas Maverick point guard Rajon Rondo. And that’s going to be vital for Rondo against the likes of Tony Parker, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and the rest of the high-profile point guards in the Western Conference.

Dirk: Kobe 'greatest player in my generation'

NEW YORK – Few appreciated Kobe Bryant surpassing Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list as much as the man who is six spots below the Los Angeles Lakers legend. Of course, Dirk Nowitzki has always been a big fan of Bryant, who now sits in the No. 3 spot among the league’s all-time scoring leaders with 32,331 career points. “He’s probably the greatest player in my generation that I played against,” said Nowitzki, who has 27,239 career points and will likely pass Elvin Hayes and Moses Malone over the next few weeks to move up to seventh on the list.

3 charts that show how Dirk compares to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant

With Kobe passing Jordan this weekend, here's a numerical look. On Sunday night, Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan to become the third-leading scorer in NBA history. Bryant hit his second free throw, play stopped, he was presented with the ball and the internet expressed their awe or disgust at his accomplishment, depending on what side of the fence you fall on. Dirk Nowitzki is the top active scorer behind Kobe and the no. 9 all-time scorer in the NBA, so I thought this was a good opportunity to explore how Dirk related to Bryant and Jordan on the all-time list. The one thing that Dirk has...

Devin Harris happy to tick off Dirk

DALLAS – They’ve been friends for more than a decade, but Devin Harris has been getting on Dirk Nowitzki’s nerves a lot lately. “He actually beats me all the time in 3-point shooting contests, which pisses me off,” Nowitzki said. There are typically a few bucks on the line during those post-practice shooting sessions. Harris especially enjoys taking the money of a teammate who is “kind of a tightwad” despite making more than $200 million during his NBA career.

Why the Mavericks are not going to have any All Stars this season

Monta Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki can both make strong cases, but the Western Conference is unforgiving. NBA All-Star voting began yesterday; here's where you can cast your ballot. You definitely should! If you're reading this, there's a good chance you're going to make more intelligent choices than most NBA fans out there. However, if you're prepared to see Dirk Nowitzki or Monta Ellis in New York in February, you'll probably be disappointed. While I hate to be the bearer of bad news, it doesn't look good for the Mavericks this year. While you might think a fan vote for each conference's...

Chandler Parsons' confidence, percentages soaring

DALLAS – NBA shooters rarely admit that their confidence dips during a slump. NBA shooters lie a lot. “Everybody’s got to fight it,” said Dirk Nowitzki, the face of the Dallas Mavericks and the ninth-leading scorer in NBA history. “Sometimes when you struggle a little bit, you’ve got to keep stepping into it with the same poise, I want to say, or the same mindset and forget about your misses. Sometimes that’s not the easiest thing in the world.

Sully's three-point shot becoming the Celtics newest weapon

With floor spacing and three-point shooting at a premium in today’s NBA, the majority of the league’s franchises now covet big men that can stroke it from long range. The problem is, there are only so many legitimate "stretch-4’s" to go around, and some of the best in the business – i.e., Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Love, Channing Frye, Ryan Anderson – are already committed to the Dallas Mavericks, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Pelicans, respectively. But just because you might not have one of those four guys on your roster doesn’t mean you’re out of...

Bucks vs. Mavericks final score: Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons help Dallas light up Milwaukee 125-102

There was no need for a game-winning jumper from Monta Ellis in this one. So let's just run through the math real quick. Dallas Mavericks without Dirk Nowitzki: two-point victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on a buzzer-beating jumper by Monta Ellis. Dallas Mavericks with Dirk Nowitzki: 23-point win with few real challenges. Sounds about right.
