Dirk Nowitzki leads the Race to the MVP 2007. He has been third for two years in a row. This years he is hopefully going to win.
This season he is leading his Dallas Mavericks to the - by far - best results in the NBA. 44 games won and 9 lost! The next best team the Phoenix Suns has won 39 games and lost 12.
He is leader in efficiency per 48 minutes, a ranking that takes into account all important statistical data like points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals etc.
On Thursday the Mavericks will host the Miami Heat, their opponent in the Finals 2006. There has been a lot of rumour in the press about bad words between Dirk and Dwyane Wade of the Heat. Wade is cited with the words that Dirk is no leader that he pretends to be. Dirk wants to give the answer on the playing ground. You should dress warm on Thursday Dwyane, maybe some extra underwear?
More coverage on Friday.
