HoopsHype Kirk Hinrich rumors

December 4, 2014 Updates

Nowitzki said of the foul: “They had the game won and they foul Monta on the dribble up which in my 17 years is one of the dumber fouls I’ve ever seen … I saw coach (Tom) Thibodeau and he was just shaking his head.” That quote ended up getting repeated and replayed throughout Wednesday. Nowitzki said before the Milwaukee game that he regretted throwing Hinrich, who he considers a friend, under the bus. “Yeah, it got overblown a little bit,” he said. “You know, Kirk is actually my guy. We went to dinners before. I didn’t really mean to put him on the spot like that. It was an unfortunate play. We’ve all been part of unfortunate situations. I don’t know if Thibs wanted them to foul, but it was just way too late. Dallas Morning News

“They had a chance to foul Monta when he dribbled two or three times up the floor. The situation was just a bad one, but it was fortunate for us. But I didn’t mean to put my man Kirk on the spot like that, because he’s a good dude. He’s a hard-nosed player. He made two 3s right before that actually to put them in position to win, so I have nothing but respect for Kirk Hinrich. I didn’t mean to really get it out like that.” Dallas Morning News

"I waited too long. I messed it up," Hinrich said. "It was a bonehead play. I know better than that. This one's on me because I felt like we played a good game to that point. To get back to the point we were in a position to win. For them to tie it up on a play like that, it was a bad decision." ESPN.com
