Doesn't David Lord write for Fish's Mavericks site? As if he would pick anyone else BUT Dirk for his nomination.
Really, I'd love to see Dirk take it, but think about what the media would want. Think they'll pass up on both Shaq AND Nash to choose him? Both of those teams have grown by leaps and bounds due to the addition of one player while the Mavs are sitting in their usual 4 seed going into the playoffs.
