Dirk v. Bird.....and trust me...Dirk is no Bird
1/12/10 in NBA
Living in Dallas and being a Mavs fan there is often talk about Dirk Nowitzki and Larry Bird being extremely similar. Let me clear this up - just b/c Dirk is white and so was Bird doesn't mean they are similar players. Don't get me wrong, Dirk is good but he is no Bird.
Some of the points that Miller brings up in his blog is that Dirk lacks the background, leadership, and most importantly the stats.
Hopefully for the Mavs sake, Dirk can become like Bird, but for now he is not even close.
