As a Mavs fan, I would rather the media completely ignore Dallas and focus all the attention on Miami, as we know "the worldwide leader" is going to do.

the media has been drooling over dirk for a week now, even talking about how he is larry bird (as insane a comparison as lebron is mj). I am not sure where you are looking but espn has had alot about him, nba tv yesterday had a special how how the mavs will shut down the heat and about dirk.

I don't mean to be rude and I say this with all due respect to the NBA, the Mavericks, and Dirk, and the Mavs fans but Dirk is not interesting to talk about. Dirk is a great player and probably hall of fame bound but Dirk like Tim Duncan are just not interesting to talk about. He doesn't create energy or buzz, he doesn't draw attention or media to himself, and all he does is work hard and kick butt. I mention Duncan because he was amazing but never generated talk.

Some players just work hard, show up, and do what they have to do. Others try and embrace and draw in attention and spot light. Dirk is not a spotlight guy.

LeBron has created threads left and right for 3 years. Dallas has a much smaller fan base here, the media doesn't cover them like the Heat, and there aren't many Mavs "haters" that like to constantly form threads with their agendas.

Nobody is ignoring the Mavs and their chances. But the Heat have been a media circus since July 10, 2010.

LeBron gets the threads, per the usual (a mix of hate, love and obsession)..but Dirk is definitely getting love.

The thing is, I don't believe dirk really gives a **** if he doesn't get love. dirk is focused on 1 thing and 1 thing only.....

Dirk is getting love, its just that Lebron reaching the finals again in unison with the whole Heat big 3 drama is drawing alot more attention.

because since the start of this season every1 said he's the best player in the world and at that time is LeBron and he lived up to it, dirk didn't scratch any1s top 5 best players in the league and maybe not even some ppls top 10's at the start of the yr...all the hype around dirk is prisoner of the moment ****

He is actually an 83 in NBA2k11! Its blasphemy.

Here are a list of players rated higher than Dirk in NBA2k11. I'm not even gonna include players that could be considered even remotely debatable. These are just the obvious ones that make you say WOW.

Gerald Wallace
Stephen Jackson
Andre Iguodala
Carlos Boozer
Rajon Rondo
Joe Johnson
Chris Bosh
Manu Ginobili
Monta Ellis

And thats not even counting the numberous players who are rated the same 83 as Dirk (Such as David Lee, Jason Kidd, Josh Smith, Danny Granger, Yao Ming, Gilbert Arenas etc.) and the players that Dirk has been considerably better than that are ranked above him (Amare, Duncan, Gasol, D. Williams, Nash, etc.)

Overall, NBA2k11 is a freakin joke.

nba 2k11 takes in to account your whole game.... hes a bust on offense. but cant play defense therfore 83

:facepalm: Dirk was a top 3 MVP candidate before he got injured!!!!

He has been ballin all year!!! If he didnt get injured he would have been up there with Rose and Lebron for MVP

And tell me who didnt have Dirk in their top 10 players????

No one is living in the moment, you just didnt watch Dirk play this season

Yeah, you're right. That's why Carlos Boozer, Monta Ellis, Chris Bosh, etc. are all ahead of Dirk. Because of their stellar defense. How could I be so foolish to not realize that?

56 FTs in a single series is stupid dumb!

Dirk has been nothing short of phenomenal in these playoffs. Miami will have their hands full with him, that's for sure. Not to mention that we can't load up on Dirk like we did against Rose. We do that, Terry, Stojakovic, Barea, etc....would kill us. They'll just have to double and rotate quickly, but the rotations would have to be flawless. I just hope the refs let us be physical with him, and be consistent on both ends. This won't be as fun if they're calling fouls left and right.

It's funny how only heat fans seem to believe this, and you can't even blame it on the hate Miami gets because everyone said that officiating was bs long before they signed Lebron and everyone started hating them.

Calm down dude, I was only messing. Quite frankly, I can't blame you guys for being upset over '06. I was just glad that after so many years of being a Heat fan, we finally got a championship. Both teams are so different from then, so it'll be a much better series hopefully.

and you also understand SteBo was joking there, right.

I understand Mavs fans still have a bitter taste in their mouth about that series. And they hope Dirk learned. But you need to also hope Cuban learned to stfu. Refs are human. And when you have an annoying owner literally screaming at your face for 4 straight games, and ripping you in the media, its bound to effect you.

Shut up and sit in the owner's box.

And does it really matter anymore? I constantly see fans still bring it up constantly way after the fact. Nothing a Mavs, Kings, Lakers, or Bulls fans can say will change 2001, 2006, 2008, or 2011.

Dirk isn't getting near the love the Heat players are and that's ok. On ESPN all weekend it's been Heat stories over and over.

Dirk has never gotten the respect he deserves...but that's ok, he's about to open alot of eyes.

I hope you guys realize we may never see a type of player like dirk ever again. His skillset is nothing we have ever seen from a 7 footer. If he isnt getting any love he better get it now. Were watching history and I hope he gets a ring

This guy right here just gave the answer... yet he is ignored like Dirk is. I guess people just hear what they want to listen to sometimes.

What? Like 90% of Heat fans, 90% of Spurs fans, 90% of Laker fans (before Dirk whooped them), 90% percent of Thunder fans (before Dirk whooped them), and probably 100% of GS fans, said Dirk isn't a good player or talk about how "soft" and "mentally fragile" he is
