Not that any more evidence was necessary to consider Dirk one of the legends in NBA history, but that’s one heck of a reference.
Remember when Dirk was considered soft? It was a silly stereotype for a long time, and that was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt when he put the Mavs on his shoulders for a championship run.
The soft label seems especially ridiculous after reading such respect for Dirk coming from the most ruthless competitor in NBA history.
