Five things you need to know about Dirk Nowitzki's future, 21st season with Mavericks and beyond

With Dirk Nowitzki in line to play at least one more season, his 21st with the Mavericks, here are a few things to keep in mind about his future:Next season?Don't expect it to be a whole lot more fun. The game plan was to get Nowitzki back to a 21st season and have the Mavericks be a lot more competitive than they were last season. And by competitive, we mean winning a few more games than 24. But there is no guarantee. This is a hard-and-slow rebuilding process. What we have to hope for is that Nowitzki can leave his DNA all over the young players who are going to have to put Humpty Dumpty...

Nash, Dirk and Finley saved Mavs 20 years ago. Can proven blueprint that built those teams work today?

You know you've been around a long time when you can dust off a proven blueprint from 20 years ago and hope it still works.That's what the Mavericks are in the process of doing.President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson was one of the people with his head (or other body parts) on the chopping block when the Mavericks were trying to climb out of the dark days of the 1990s.He put it all on the line for a gangly European named Dirk Nowitzki, a Canadian named Steve Nash and a rising athlete with no sidekicks named Michael Finley.That threesome would lead the Mavericks into a new era and...

What Kobe Bryant says was Dirk Nowitzki's 'biggest growth as a player'

What Kobe Bryant says was Dirk Nowitzki's 'biggest growth as a player'

With his 20th season in the books, it's safe to say Dirk Nowitzki is a little past his prime. But that doesn't mean players don't remember and respect Nowitzki's body of work and his impact on the game. Former NBA player Kobe Bryant recalled Nowitzki's impact on the game in a recent Q&A."Dirk obviously took it to a different level because of his mobility, the ability to put the ball on the floor and spin," Bryant said in the Q&A. "But by and large, when Dirk won that championship that year, the biggest problem we had with him, that Miami and all the other teams had with him, wasn't his...

Updated math as NBA regular season ends: LeBron James is just 149 points behind No. 6 career scorer Dirk Nowitzki

It's cumbersome enough that Dirk Nowitzki, five weeks shy of his 40th birthday, was hobbling around with crutches and a walking boot encasing his lower left leg as his 20th NBA season came to a close.Such was the scene Tuesday evening as Mavericks icon Nowitzki met with reporters at American Airlines Center to discuss his intention to return for season No. 21.Just 24 hours later, LeBron James wrapped up his 15th NBA regular season. As if Nowitzki needed another indicator that Father Time is nipping at the heels of his size-15 Nike's, No. 7 NBA career scorer James gained considerably this...

It's (lottery) magic! The Mavericks get a nice helper from Orlando

The Orlando Magic did the Mavericks a nice favor Wednesday night.By beating the Washington Wizards 101-92, the Magic improved to 25-57, one game better than the Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks.Doing so means that instead of a three-way tie, the Mavericks finish in a two-way tie for the third-worst record in the NBA at 24-58.The Mavericks and Magic will split 275 chances at the No. 1 overall pick -- or at least being in the top three. It also means the Mavericks can be no lower than seventh in the draft. They conceivably could have dropped to eighth if the Magic had lost on Wednesday.Since the...
