    He's comin' for that title, Mike Trout (on pace for)

    Nice to see him still going strong. As much as I've never been fond of Monta, he's certainly been a big help. Taking some of the scoring burden off of Dirk simply can't hurt him at all.

    For some context, only 12 players that played significant time have ever done it. Nash has done it 4 times. Kerr, Calderon, KD, Reggie and Mark Price have done it once. Bird has done it twice. It's certainly an arbitrary thing with arbitrary cut offs, but it's definitely quite telling of an accomplishment.

    Hard to give it to Nash when he doesn't look to score and picks his spots. For a player like Dirk who is known for scoring, this is much more impressive.

    Monta and Dirk are a near-perfect match on paper. Monta is basically JJ Barea on steroids for them.
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation that’s critical. He’s one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.”

    In Nash's prime he was taking 4+ threes a game and 12-15 shots a game. Certainly not in Dirk's range, but there are tons of players throughout the history of the sport who have shot as much or fewer than Nash and never did what he did or even got close. Again, we're talking about a very selective group. It's still VERY impressive. Maybe not as much, but certainly.

    Nash had the 5th most FGAs one of the seasons he did it too. Less than Bird (x2), KD and Dirk, but still, 5th. And he did it 4 times.

    In a way, its almost more impressive considering Nash had to focus on being the engine of the offense, getting everyone else involved, and on top of that creating his own shots at a 50/40/90 clip. Guys like Dirk only have to pick spots to score. Nash had to pick spots to score around creating shots for everyone else.

    If Dirk averages at least 18 PPG the rest of the season and next 3 years, he will be behind only Kareem, Karl Malone, MJ, & Kobe on the all time scoring list

    Not all of those guys did qualify to be considered. Like Kerr and Calderon. If you consider them nonetheless, the only guy in the 50/50/90 club is Kerr. Hail to the king.

    Btw, imo Dirk won't join that club again this year. He's close though.

    Damn, that would be an awesome feat for Dirk. He can do it if he really wants to go for it. I am sure Cuban won't mind keeping Dirk for as long as Dirk wants it going.
