As ugly as it is, the beard kinda fits Dirk. A rugged and battle tested man on one last journey.
quote:When 2ksports was interviewing him about the new game, and they told him about the game keeping up with hairstyles, he told them to just leave his hair long.
for whatever reason I always feel like Dirk plays better when his hair is longer.
quote:I think that's the reason OKC has such a hard time winning against them too. You just can't defend him when he's making shots. There's literally no way.
I think Dallas would present the Spurs the most problems because Dirk.
I know I'm gonna get all the "OKC has owned Dallas this season and last year's playoffs" yada yada.
quote:Absolutely. Mayo was an overall good addition, but he's inconsistent. I think Dirk finally getting back into basketball shape has helped him, and the addition of James at point has improved overall offensive chemistry as well. The fact that Dallas is good enough to beat the Clippers tells me they have the talent to win enough games down the stretch to make the playoffs, but they don't control their own destiny. The Lakers and Utah will have to struggle with their tougher schedules on top of Dallas playing winning basketball, at least 6-3, down the stretch.
but its what happens with him in the other 4 that will tell the tale.
quote:I can assure you Dallas doesn't. I'm glad we have an owner that doesn't give a rat's arse how much Stern fines him for putting the refs in the lime light. I can't wait till this crooked owner is done.
I'm sure every team does.
Free Throw count in LA vs. Dallas:
LA - 33
Dallas - 12
quote:So that magically made LA only commit 6 shooting fouls in 48 minutes?
The other team is going to have a ton more free throws when you intentionally foul their center the entire time
