Default Washington Post: Dirk Chokewitski admits to getting scared at the end of games!!



Nowitzki Admits Getting Tense in Pressure Situations

Dallas Mavericks all-star forward Dirk Nowitzki, who is still hearing criticism for his meltdown during a 129-127 double-overtime loss to Phoenix last week, admitted yesterday that he gets tight during pressure situations.

"I think everybody who says they don't get tense, they're lying," Nowitzki said following practice at Dodge Fitness Center on the campus of Columbia University, where the Mavericks were preparing for the Knicks tonight.

"It's big games. You got to find ways to stay loose and relax. I've been doing a decent job of not letting the pressure get to me (YEA THE **** RIGHT YOU HAVE...HAHAHAHAHA) and still enjoying the moment."

You think Michael Jordan was "tense" at the end of games, Dirk? Do you really believe that? Do you really believe that Larry Bird was pissing his leg at the free throw line? Give us all a break. Just because you turn into a scrub at the end of games, don't try to play it off like it happens to all the great ones. That's a joke.
