  • One of the best, if not, the best Dallas Maverick in franchise history.

    Dirk Nowitzki is the best of a lot of things in the NBA. First, his shooting. He can knock down tough shots with the best of him. He has great concentration, and proves it when he's been fouled, and puts up a shot as if he still has a chance to make it: more times than not, he does make it. He's a great shooter. He is one of the best in the NBA at knocking down the turnaround fadeaway shot. And what he does at his size is amazing. He stands at 7 feet tall exactly, and is probably the best 7-foot shooter. He can knock down the three. He's a 90% free throw shooter, 50% FG shooter, and 35-40% 3-point FG shooter. He's a great rebounder, as expected, so he can put up double-doubles quickly. He's averaged over 20 points in his 12-year career. Probably about over 8 rebounds, but can have 15 or more rebounds in a single game, too. Jason Kidd only makes him better.moreless
