During the 2016-17 season, I talked with some of the best players in the league about the legacy of Dirk Nowitzki and what it is like suiting up against him. “He has done so much for not only the NBA, not only in Dallas, but his country. From him, to Kob, to Timmy D, to KG (Big Ticket). They had a wave, those guys are legends. They opened the doors for younger guys like myself and other players who are flourishing. The best foreigner to ever play the game. He brought a championship here. He’s done so much for the game of basketball.” – James Harden.
