Dirk Nowitzki finally achieves greatness

Dirk Nowitzki, for his NBA career, has accumulated the statistics of an all-time great, yet he has never been considered in that discussion. He’s been called "soft," a "choker," and a "loser."

But in 2011, Dirk led an aging, talent-poor Dallas Mavericks team to the NBA title, beating  Kobe Bryant’s star-studded Lakers and LeBron James’ paper champions along the way.
