well, thats partly b/c Dallas was able to get the guy they wanted and more by pulling the prearranged trade with the Bucks.

The Mavs moved Tractor Traylor for Dirk and Pat Garrity. They then turned around and flipped Garrity plus parts to the Suns for Steve Nash.

Rick Pitino has said he badly wanted Dirk and was going to take him for the Celtics but they couldn't move up.

Before the season, Nellie was crowing to the Dallas media that Dirk was going to win rookie of the year.
