Couldn't resist. To be fair, Mavs fans were furious when they made the trade for Dirk instead of choosing Paul Pierce. He looked like another Big White Stiff that the team seemed to love drafting since the time of Bill Garnett, Uwe Blab, and Bill Wennington. The last two were picked in a year when they had three picks and everything seemed set up for them to grab Karl Malone with their pick from Cleveland and Joe Dumars. Then late in the game they fell in love with Detlef Schrempf. Good player, but not Malone or Dumars.
