When he decides to retire from the game, Dirk Nowitzki will without a doubt go down as one of the greatest players of all time, and will find himself in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Dirk is nearly unguardable because of his 7'0'' frame and lethal shooting touch, and he revolutionized the way big men play the game at the NBA level.
Still, with all the games Dallas has won in his 15 seasons as a Mav, Nowitzki certainly has had some help along the way. Among the great players to play alongside Nowitzki have been Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Jason Terry and Michael Finley, but none of those players will make this list.
This list is instead reserved for those Mavericks who flew under the radar for whatever reason during the Nowitzki era in Dallas.
The reason the Mavericks managed their impressive 12-year playoff appearance streak (which was snapped this season) was because Dallas usually put together a complete team that complemented Nowitzki. However, these players didn't quite get the credit they deserved for helping the team win during their stints with the Mavs.
Author's Note: This will be my last article as an NBA Featured Columnist. I want to extend my gratitude to the Mavs fans who take time to read and comment on my articles every week. Thank you for your support.
