Perhaps more likely is that Cuban will find a way to give/sell Dirk a slice of the team upon retirement.
I certainly don't think Dirk and Cuban have some illicit agreement -- other stars have taken discounts. Just thinking. Cuban's innovative.
What if Mark Cuban gave Dirk a $20 million job in the Mavericks' front office for 2-3 years after he retires? Would there be outrage?
I don't know how anyone on earth can think Kobe is a better player or has been than Tim Duncan. Looking at you, Dirk
Rondo: "I'm excited to play with Dirk. He's still got a lot left in the tank."
Dirk on Rondo: "We got to keep moving and get used to probably some crazy passes that we haven’t seen around here in awhile."
Dirk on Rondo: "Anytime you have a chance to grab a top point guard in this league, you got to go for it.''
Half-kidding Dirk on Rajon Rondo meshing with Mavs' high-powered O: "Find me a lot on the offensive end and he’ll be OK."
“Anytime you have a chance to grab a top point guard in this league, you got to go for it.'' -- Dirk on Rondo
Dirk on Rondo: "He's one of the smartest players there is on the court. He's a pass-first guy, so we should all enjoy playing with him."
Dirk: "Anytime you have a chance to grab a top PG in this league, you've got to go for it. I think [Rondo] is a competitor. He's a warrior."
Dirk on Rondo: "We're going to tell him to do what he does, and that's make guys better. ... Get his teammates involved. Find me a lot."
It's scary to think how many trailer threes Dirk will get with Rondo leading the break and Monta and Parsons running on the wings. Scary.
The lowest paid member of the Dallas Mavericks starting 5? It’s Dirk Nowitzki –the only Mavs starter making less than $8 million this season
Dirk Nowitzki will be the lowest-paid starter for the Mavs after the Rajon Rondo’s trade
Years w/ the Celtics, fans and city. The opportunity to play with guys like Dirk, Monta, Tyson and the young talent of Chandler is exciting
Dirk Nowitzki is the lowest paid player in Dallas' starting lineup. No accident. His sacrifice made Parsons signing/Rondo deal possible
For those that care about such matters, Rondo becomes 2nd highest rated player on Mavs in 2K15 at 85 (Dirk 89, TC and Ellis 83, CP 80).
With Tyson, Parsons, Rondo, Dirk (hometown discount), J.J., Aminu, Jefferson, Donnie Nelson may win the Executive of the Year award this yr.
Think about what Mark Cuban and the Mavs have done in 12 months -- re-signed Dirk for pennies, stole Chandler Parsons for nothing
After Rondo deal is complete, Nowitzki will be the lowest-paid starter for the Mavs. Rondo, Ellis, Parsons and Chandler all make more.
In 2012 I wrote a column comparing the way the Lakers were giving Kobe a chance to win in his last few years vs Mavs & Dirk
I thought Dallas was a strong team before. Starters now: Rajon Rondo, Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler & Chandler Parsons.
Rajon Rondo-Monta Ellis-Chandler Parsons-Dirk Nowitzki-Tyson Chandler. How many starting fives better than that one?
Rondo es un ganador, y con Dirk/Parsons/Ellis hay suficientes tiradores como para mantener un espacio saludable en ataque.
Dirk Nowitzki took a huge pay cut to re-sign with DAL over the summer. He's making just $7,974,482 this year. Looks like a great choice now.
Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis, Chandler Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler is star-packed starting 5. Do pieces fit? Counting on Carlisle.
I was hesitant to label Mavs a contender before due to the backcourt. Now, with Rondo, Ellis, Parsons, Dirk, Chandler, etc. they're loaded.
For the record-J Nelson making 37% of 3's. Rondo and Ellis are a combined 38 of 124 for 29%. Dirk at 34%, making just 1.5 a game. Spacing?
We've learned over past few years that you can't just mash stars together and succeed. My faith in Dirk/Carlisle is pretty strong, though.
Imagine this starting five: Rondo, Dirk, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler & Chandler Parsons.
