Column: A new Dirk Nowitzki? Not so much
 
This just in: Dirk Nowitzki is now and has been a phenomenal postseason performer – for years.

The lion’s share of NBA “analysts” are hopping aboard the Charles Barkley bandwagon, lauding Dirk’s newfound mindset.

“This is a different Dirk Nowitzki.”

Really?

One of four players to post career playoff averages of 25 points and 10 rebounds and the guy is just now stepping it up?

There is no denying what we saw Tuesday night in Dallas is the stuff of legend. Dirk gave the Thunder 48 points on just 15 shots. That will not happen again. However, Maverick fans have become quite accustomed to brilliance from their start power forward.

In a word, Nowitzki is efficient. There are a few players out there who can put up 29 points per game in a playoff run; not many, but a few. But how many of those are doing that putting up just 18 shots?

Good read. This is what DMAVS41 and other Maverick fans have been saying all along. Its no secret Dirk has been pretty spectacular throughout his entire career, but people like to label him a "choker" or "soft" for no legit reason. Dirk has always been great in the playoffs.

Its not just about stats. The guy is playing amazing, getting his team involved, playing better defense and being a leader.

I am a long time Mavs fan, and I agree he has been seriously underrated all along. But you can't deny he is playing on a new level.

He is on a mission, he's unshakable. He's intimidating like he's never been before.
