Bernucca: Nowitzki Not Properly Recognized as an All-Time Great

Dirk Nowitzki

For the third straight year, the Dallas Mavericks went into the summer trying to snag a superstar to line up alongside Dirk Nowitzki. Two years ago, the Mavericks went after All-Star point guard Deron Williams, who took a pass on playing in his home state with no local income taxes and re-signed with the Brooklyn Nets.

Paging Jim Gray, paging Jim Gray. Another decision is near, and we will bring out the capital ‘D’ if you agree to make the announcement on TV along with LeBron, who can recycle his purple checked shirt just for old time’s sake.
