Quote:
Dirk Nowitzki's legacy as an all-time great is also gaining momentum.

"In my opinion, he's a top 10 player in NBA history because of the uniqueness of his game and how he's carried this franchise on his back for over a decade," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle told "ESPN First Take" on Monday. "He's just right. He's leading the team. His shot-making is great. He's passing the ball great. He's one of the guys that's directing traffic for us defensively."

Sure, Nowitzki has been the league MVP (2006-07), and he's been the one constant on the floor during the Mavericks' run of 11 consecutive 50-win seasons. Only the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics (1959-1968), the Magic Johnson-led Lakers (1980-91) and the Tim Duncan-led San Antonio Spurs (2000-present) have had comparable runs.

#1 Foreign Player

Top 10 PFs of all time ( Duncan, KG, Malone, Barkley and a few more guys and then #10 Nowitzki )

Carlysle, You had better run to cover when the Drug Testing squad comes around. Quit sniffing glue! It causes punctiform necrosis of the encephalon. It is the reason that you are now delusional.

There was One Day, many moons ago, when I actually thought that Paula might just make a list like that. BOY -- WAS I WRONG.

But again -- That was only for One Day. Literally.

Kick,

You are changing the parameters here! Carlysle did not speak of top ten power forwards of all time. He spoke of Nowitzki being through the 65 year history of the League in the Top 10 basketball players of all time. That is patent pig slop. I doubt he is in the Top 50. This stuff always happens. People get on a bandwagon for the player that is still playing, that is still object of immediate attention, and they totally forget what they are talking about, they forget about all of the players that have gone before him, and they just get ridiculous. This is more a confidence-giver from a Coach to his Player.
