Dirk Nowitzki has always been very honest about his opinions on topics basketball related, and the case reamins no different when he questioned about LaMarcus Aldridge possibly coming to Dallas earlier to Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News. Nowitzki has already came out and said that’d he accept a 6th man role to bring another star to Dallas.
“I know that, at 37, I can’t be the No. 1 option if we want to play for the championship. That’s how the cycle goes. Really, if you look at our roster, we only got four or five guys, so we got a lot of work to do. We need a little bit of everything.”
Nowitzki on Aldridge:
“We’d love to have him,” he said at an appearance at the Mavericks Hoop Camp presented by Academy Sports at Episcopal School of Dallas on Tuesday. “He’s a great mid-range shooter. He plays bigger than he is on the defensive end. He’s a good rebounder on both ends of the floor, and on that left block he’s a beast. So I mean, he’s a really, really good player….
“We’ve been ousted twice in the first round the last two years, and whatever I got to do, I’m ready to help.”
Aldridge spent most of his life in Texas, so Aldridge could favor to sign with the Mavericks because of the Texas connection.
