Mark Cuban: 'I had this big tall guy named Dirk Nowitzki and I let him be Dirk Nowitzki and I got out of the way'

Mark Cuban: “I had this big tall guy named Dirk Nowitzki and I let him be Dirk Nowitzki… and I got out of the way. But I think more than anything else there was the turnaround on the business side, and then there was the turnaround the basketball side. On the basketball side I just went in there immediately, I said whatever it takes to win that’s what we’re going to do. Back then they had three or four coaches that were responsible for everything and I was like ‘okay we spend more money training people on PC software than we do developing the most important assets of the business’, so I made the decision to go out there and hire like 15 different development coaches, one for each player, and everybody thought I was just insane. But you it sent the message that we were going to do whatever it took to win. Once the guys believe that you know winning was the goal as opposed to just making money, attitudes changed, effort went up and you know the rest is history.”

More on this storyline

“As far as skillset and scoring-wise, yes, [Luka is better than Dirk],” Marion said on SiriusXM NBA Radio. “That’s not even a question. As far as what Dirk has done, the longevity and history, no, [Luka isn’t better than Dirk]. Dirk is a seven-foot assassin with a fadeaway, but as the whole package, that’s not even actually a relevant question honestly. Look at how much Luka is able to do on the floor.” -via Sports Illustrated / March 14, 2024
Higher Volume: Accounting for higher volume, he goes over multiple players. Kobe Bryant, for instance, was efficient in the clutch. But Damian Lillard and Dirk Nowitzki stood out for their clutch performances as well. Playoffs: In playoff settings, clutch performances become even more critical. Ray Allen and Khris Middleton were highlighted for their exceptional clutch shooting percentages in playoff moments. -via NBA Librarian / March 6, 2024
