Video: Dirk Nowitzki Rolls Ankle, Then Comes Back To Hit Clutch 3 In Mavs Win

Dirk Nowitzki

With a shade under eight minutes to play in last night’s Wizards-Mavericks game at the Verizon Center in DC, Bradley Beal — in his first game of the season, after returning from injury — knocked down another three-pointer to give the Wizards an 85-84 advantage. At the same time, Dirk Nowitzki rolled his ankle on the back of Kris Humphries‘ foot. Dirk would leave, but the all-time leader in points scored by a foreign-born player would return and show why he’s a champion and future Hall of Famer. Read More »

Brandan Wright Climbs The Ladder On KEvin Seraphin

Brandan Wright

We’re not sure Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin knew what was coming when he elected to get in front of Mavericks center Brandan Wright after he rolled to the hoop last night. J.J.

Chandler Parsons

Dirk Nowitzki was Chandler Parsons’ childhood idol. Now that the towering sharpshooters are teammates on the Dallas Mavericks, then, it’s only natural that residents of Big D would confuse them from time to time.
