Dirk Nowitzki responds to Kareem’s ‘one-trick pony’ talk

Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar asserted that Dirk Nowitzki is a one-trick pony because of his one-legged fadeaway jumper, but the Dallas Mavericks power forward — shockingly — doesn’t agree with the criticism.

DALLAS (AP) Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki skipped the game against Phoenix on Sunday night to rest on the front end of a back-to-back and the first of five games in seven nights for Dallas.

Dirk Nowitzki drains game-winner, gets props from Kobe

Dirk Nowitzki was never known for his leaping ability, but the 7-footer has never really had any trouble dunking, either. Perhaps age is finally starting to catch up with the Dallas Mavericks star.

Can Dirk Nowitzki continue to outrun Father Time?

Dirk Nowitzki just might be part Benjamin Button and part Charles Francis Xavier as he attempts to defy the odds of defeating age and Father Time. We hear many athletes indicate that Father Time is undefeated (well, sort of). There are very few who defeat it. Year after year, we see our favorite athletes lose their powers in a New York minute.
