    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.

    And then you have Dirk Chokewitski:

    Bwa...bwaaa...bwahahahahaha

    The game sure ain't what use to be. We go from MJ and Larry to Dirk? Say ain't so!

      I love the way that Boston fans ooh and ahh at Dirk when he shoots. When he hits a high-arching jupshot you can feel the longing eyes looking on from the stands in reminiscience. You can hear respect and awe in their gasps when he pulls up to shoot. You can almost hear forlorn Celticfan say "I remember when we had a player like that, and a team almost that good."

      It's particularly disheartening to Celticfan when Dirk coasts through the game only to decide in the fourth quarter that he's going to quit messing around with their little team and pound them into submission by dominating the game and closing them out. Just like he did against so many teams in the past. Just like their players used to do. So, what can they do but live vicariously through the Big German's outfit while he visits their floor? Oh, a Celticfan can dream, cant she?

          Does Dirk make you wear a rubber?

                  Cant wait till the playoffs

                  Gonzo making these threads are funny tho..

                  Mavs are 2-0 since the 2 OT game.
                  Suns are 0-2 since..

                  What does that say? Im not sure, but all I know is that Dirk is a great player, im not sure why the hate.. other than to piss off llama ;S

                    He makes them at an 87% rate when in "crunch time". When he makes them, no one seems to care. But it's magnified 10x when he misses them.

                    I can ask - what is the biggest single shot in Dirk's career so far?

                    I'd say it was the free throw to tie it with the Spurs in Game 7 of last year's playoffs. I seem to recall that one going in.

                    Why do I get myself into these things? I know we're being baited.

                      It was that shot, and he does make them most of the time. But in this case ur right, it is magnified because he went up against his old buddy Nash and it was in OT, if it happend on any other game we wouldn't even be here talking about this.

                        He's leading the NBA's winningest team with 25+ PPG.
                        Not bad... maybe he's on to something. To each his own. You'll get no knock from me on how he approaches his game.

                          ..but yet when Dirk put away the Suns on a last-second jumper it was an afterthought.

                          ...or when he scored 50 on them leading them over Nash, all-star, 6th man of the year, coach of the year & friends in the Conference Finals.

                          There's a bit of a double standard going on here.

                          Dirk is easily the more accomplished player. If we are talking about clutch performance and criticism, shouldnt we point out that Nash has never been to the Finals? Has there ever been a two-time MVP without a finals appearance? Has there ever been a three-time MVP without a championship?

                          So, Nash has been blessed with two all-stars, a coach of the year, a 6th man of the year (Diaw), a future 6th man of the year (Barbosa), and hasnt even made it to the finals? Talk about choking.

                            Llama was nowhere to be found other than lurking these threads after Dirks legendary classic in Dirk fasion missed FT with game on the line.

                            Funny how Llama goes into hiding and avoids the critcism of his gay love child Dirk. I wonder if when he goes into hiding if he locks himself in a room with his FatHead Dirk poster or if he just wears his Dirk jersey as he pulls his goalie. Didn't Llama dissappear last year for a couple weeks after the finals after he predicted a sweep?
