Why does Dirk call people burgers? I know I’ve heard it before, but can’t remember.

He once told a story of a VET that was on the mavs, during Dirk's rookie or second year that wouldn't practice but would just ride the exercise bike and comment on people practicing saying and i'm paraphrasing here " Get that young burger" or something of that ilk

I wonder how many All-Stars this year weren't even born when Dirk was drafted.

Watching Dirk move compared to everyone else really makes him look like Grandpa Dirk.

Looking at Holger stand next to RC really makes him look like a zombie with old, worn out clothes that are baggy and his expression gives his face a hollowed out look.

I want to go back to 1998 and start all over again with those two. It was greatness.

When I read VET, first thought was " an animal doctor at a basketball practice. That's weird!

Nowitzki: I actually stole that. I had a teammate my first few years in the league. His name was Gary Trent and he was a little nuts, as you guys know. My second year, literally, he tore his hamstring so he missed basically the entire year, which was good for me because he was my position so I played basically 30-something minutes my second year which was amazing for me and my development. But listening to him in practice, it was a roast session literally every day in practice. He would just come in and make sure to sit on the bike the entire practice and just go off on anybody. Whatever happens out there, somebody's getting roasted, and he had a really loud voice, I don't know if you guys remember. So he was one of a kind and he actually always called guys burgers, "Go at him, he's a burger" and so I stole that and it's been going ever since.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before.. I saw this on Reddit yesterday. It's RJ, Frye and LeBron gushing over Dirk on their podcast.

Chuck Cooperstein gave his best guess of when Dirk will return, and he said he thinks it'll be this week. I hope he's limited to 20 minutes, maybe even less. He needs to be eased into the action.

Iíd be surprised if he averages more than 20 for the season. No doubt they will limit his minutes early.

Got this yesterday: On Dec. 10, Panini America will offer 10,000 sets of Dirk Nowitzki trading cards to fans entering the arena.
Got this email today: This has been moved to the Mavs game against the Rockets this Saturday to coincide with Dirk’s (expected) return to action. Hmmm.

@espn_macmahon: Dirk Nowitzki says he still isn't quite ready to make his season debut. "We don't really have a set date in mind, but we'll keep on pushing." He has made significant recent progress.

So that's why RC was in such a hurry to get this game over with.

I am in row 7 of this game. Got busy and couldn’t do the October game but now I get to see:

Dirk in the first game of his last season
Doncic in his first season

Was so afraid that I wouldn't see Dirk play this season.
