I dont know what you've heard, but he has been well recieved by the vets on the team. Especially Dirk, Stackhouse, Armstrong, Terry, and Dampier. They are committed to his vision.

AJ is a mini version of Greg Popovich.

But from today's DMN:

However, the league's other major piece of hardware – the MVP trophy – will elude Dirk Nowitzki, a source said. While it was unknown who will win the MVP, it will not be Nowitzki, who was lumped with Phoenix's Steve Nash, Cleveland's LeBron James, Detroit's Chauncey Billups and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant as legitimate candidates.

****.

****.

Dirk wont win it until he beats the Spurs.

I know it's not fair because the other candidates are not held to that standard, but he will have to overcome a little bit more than the other guys. The only other candidate on the list that is held to Dirk's standard is Billups and he wont win it either.

MVP is a popularity contest. Dirk isnt very popular.

Avery Johnson is half the man of a regular NBA player.

Avery Johnson is always getting short with people.

The MVP vote is not a popularity contest, it is a vote for who is the best player in the NBA. Dirk is no where in the vincinity of being the best player in the NBA. He is a solid all-star reserve.

What you should do angryllama is start the "Vote The Mullet for MVP" campaign next year for Dirk. Its a catchy phrase and would spread across America like wildfire. You could make shirts and everything.

His popularity would increase threefold!

That's funny.

The all-star voting is even more of a popularity contest!

If shoe commercials and ESPiN highlights make the player, then Dirk is one of the worst players ever to lead their team to 6 consecutive 50+ win seasons.

The MVP is also a popularity contest. If you dont understand how certain players who dont get the media attention that others do can be slighted in that situation, then it's not even worth us having this conversation.

Dirk Nowitzki is the BEST power forward in the NBA for the second consecutive season. He'll be an all-NBA first teamer for the second year in a row. That makes him one of the top 5 players in the world, and much better than an "all-star reserve". You are truly a goober. Stick to the schtick.

Light fuse, step away and wait for a very angryllama.:poke:

Oh yeah, congrats to Avery (or as he says it Ay-Vuh-Ree :)) on a job well done and a deserved honor. It's always nice to see good things happen to a good person.

What has Dirk done in the playoffs? A first round exit, some second round exits, and one conference finals. Those are some pretty bad numbers for a "great" player such as Dirk. Sadly, he is unable to step up his game in the playoffs and carry his team to ATLEAST an NBA Final. Dirk can't have playoff series like he had against Phoenix last year and expect to be a viable MVP canidate the next. When you are exposed for being a 7 foot jump shooter against a terrible defensive team that leaves a bad taste in voters mouths.

And Dirk Nowitski the BEST power forward in the game? Please, he isn't even the best power foward in Texas.

Yeah, he's a good dude. I saw an interview with him yesterday where someone asked him if he was excited that the playoffs were here. He responded by saying that he was glad that the Mavs and Dallas Stars are still playing in the arena because it allows more opportunities for their vendors (hot dogs, ice cream, etc) to make money.

His aide after Katrina is legendary in Houston. He's a great example of what a leader should be like. Someone that succeeds for everybody. People will trust him and follow him. He's done the same with Mavs players this season.

Dirk was drafted in 1998. Dallas has made the playoffs every year since his second season. Dallas has been eliminated in rd.1 once, rd.2 3 times, and the Conference Finals once (Dirk got injured in game 3). Dallas has never lost a series to a lower seeded team.

Im sure that Minnesota fans would love to claim that about Garnett. I'm sure that Houston fans would love to claim that about McGrady. Same goes for Cleveland fans (James), Miami fans (Wade), Philly fans (Iverson), Boston fans (Pierce), etc.

Yep. Garnett sucked in his prime.

Dirk exceeded his regular season averages against PHX, averaging 27 points and 11.5 rebounds against Phoenix. Check your facts. Dallas lost that series when Terry allowed Nash a wide open three in game 6. Dirk played great in that series...even winning game 2 on a last second shot to beat PHX in PHX.

A conclusion based on poor research and inadequate information. You are one of the most consistently undereducated posters on the board.

Brown might have rubbed off a little on Pop, but Pop is his own coach. Pop is a much better coach than Larry Brown could dream to be.
