A block a game isn't bad.

Drazen played 4 years in the NBA, not 5. He did not start in Portland because they had Clyde.

Again, there is basketball outside of the NBA. The title of the thread isn't "Dirk Nowitzki, the greatest NBA career by a European player?"

And how can he talk about blocks when Carlos Boozer gets .2 a game and Okur can't even get one at 7 foot.

^^^

Hell no. Dirk isn't a point guard smart one. He is supposed to rebound and score points. He rebounds well and is one of the top scorers in the nation.

Nice. Ad hominem attacks. That's how you win arguments in grammar school.

Dirk didn't play in international competitions?

Dirk is easily the greatest European to ever play the game. Sabonis should have been had he stayed healthy.

It is amazing how little respect Dirk gets on this board. When Dirk retires, he will be one of the 50 greatest players to ever play the game. And there are people telling me that he isn't as good as Drazen?

Drazen Petrovic?

Drazen had better international success, but we all know that the former Yugoslavia was a European powerhouse, while Germany is nothing without Dirk. They have both, nevertheless, won World Championship and Euro Championship MVP awards.

Petrovic's career PER in the NBA was 16, whereas Dirk's is around 24, one of the highest of all time. Drazen made one All NBA team, the third team, whereas Dirk has made eight, probably nine after this season.



Is this another case of

Are you braindead? I'm so sick of these boxscore fans, it's sickening. Divac is one of the best passing bigs of all time. He was a key piece in the Lakers making the finals in '91. When he went to the Hornets, he helped them to a couple 50 win seasons. When he came to the Kings, the team was a 27 win squad the year before he came, and he helped them to the playoffs his first year in the lockout season. That started a playoff run that lasted the rest of his 6 seasons with the Kings. And while you may not see much value in his production, what he brought went beyond stats. He was the ultimate glue guy, locker room leader, team first player, always positive, etc. There's a reason why his teammates speak so highly of him, and there's a reason why his jersey is retired.

I'm not saying he's had a superior career compared to Dirk, but he certainly has done enough not to get the "done nothing but pass to Horry" comments. Jesus...

Oh, and not to mention he helped open the international doors for Dirk because he was one of the success stories with guys like Sarunas Marciulionis, Detlef Schrempf, etc.

If this is strictly international play, we may also consider Galis and even Kukoc among the best. Also Kukoc did have a solid career in the NBA.

DON finds it hilarious some think Petrovic was better than Nowitzki. Nowitzki has become very underrated on these forums.
