The only thing the Mavs really have going for them is their chemistry.. and that is due to Dirk's unselfishness. He is what makes this team of poor wannabe scorers fit together so well. Dirk is as unselfish as Nahs but better than Nash. He makes the players around him better. Nash is equally as unselfish as Dirk but has better players around him.
Then how do you explain Mavs win against the Nuggets without Dirk in the lineup? How did all these "poor wannabe scorers" win without the all-mighty Dirk?
