Yes, Cubes gets a ton of credit for putting together a championship team, but he also gets credit for this.
Dirk can never win another game for the rest of his career and he's still be the greatest Mav of all time, my favorite Mav, and one of the all-time NBA greats, but I don't want to see him go out like this. I know he's not done. He's built with world-class German engineering. But if you put cheap low-tread tires, low octane fuel, etc. in a Porsche you won't be able to out last a finely tuned Chevy.
OK, not the greatest analogy, but I think you get what I'm saying.
