Cuban won't trade Dirk
Cuban was candid in explaining why the culture of the Mavs is important and why that’s the reason he will never trade 11-time All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki.
“Dirk sets the tone for our team,” Cuban blogged. “He works as hard, if not harder than anyone.
“He helps our younger players understand what he expects and what they need to do to excel. On the court he is selfless. He would rather not have to score a point if we would win the game anyway.”
Cuban referenced a Star-Telegram headline during the 2010-11 season, which noted that “the Mavs don’t have what it takes” to win a championship.
