Dirk Nowitzki wants superstar help in Dallas

  • Andy Flint

Fresh off a four game sweep at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder that put an end to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Maverick’s hope of a repeat championship, Dirk says that he wants other superstars added to the Mavericks roster.

Here are Dirk’s comments following Saturday’s 103-97 game four loss.

 “We need some guys that can make plays for themselves,” Nowitzki said. “That’s pretty obvious. If you look at all the top teams now, they have at least two-three guys they can throw the ball to and they do their thing.” Nowitzki then specifically mentioned how Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden each carried a Thunder team on different nights in the four-game sweep of the Mavericks. “If you want to be an elite team in the league right now, you have to have 2-3 guys that can go off at any time,” Nowitzki added.

The aging Nowitzki may have a point. Teams like the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and the Boston Celtics are all having post-season success with a nucleus of star players.

Dirk has help from a cast of past stars such as Shawn Marion, Jason Kidd and Vince Carter. He watched potential contributor, Lamar Odom, burn out after only a handful of games. Dirk needs some fresh legs.

So maybe the Mavs make a run at hometown point guard, Deron Williams, or perhaps disgruntled center, Dwight Howard. Perhaps both?

The point is. Dallas needs help if they plan to contend again during Nowitzk’s reign.

  • One sure way of ruining the Mavs for life…take Dwight! Throw everyone’s rhythm off as he dribble, dribbles, does not hit the open man and turns it over, watch him disappear at the end of close games due to his inability to make pressure free throws, note his dividing of the locker room and undermining the coach. and his thug like fouling early in the game, sitting him to contemplate his next move to get out of town to further his “brand.” One only has to note his ONE basket scored in game one of the 2009 Finals or his missed clutch free throws throughout. He definitely would lead the Mavs to oblivion.
