Dirk is: The Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award

The NBA had its awards ceremony recently and many awards were handed out. From a controversial MVP to ALL NBA teams, several different awards were handed out. One award that wasn’t questioned was that of Teammate of the Year. Dirk Nowitzki won this award and it is another piece of hardware that will join several more in Dirk’s trophy case. I didn’t look into the voting in detail but over the past few years nobody has deserved this more. After the 2011 championship season, Dirk has gone through so many different types of teams that he has had an opportunity to meet several new and old faces. Everyone that leaves Dallas has never had anything negative to say about Dirk. Not only is this a testament to how great of a teammate he is, but also the type of person he is. Yes, we have heard stories of great players and issues with them and teammates. This can range from MJ/Kerr, Barkley/Pippen, Shaq/Kobe, and more. But nothing from any of Dirk’s teams.
