This is a retarded statement considering he won a championship and FMVP 4 years after that.

Sure bud. I agree with you, it seems hard to believe, but it happened. Now imagine this...

The year is 2007, Dirk has just won the MVP and is leading the first place 67 win Mavericks against the 8th seed, 42 win Warrior team whom gave up the most points in the league that year.

Dirk is 28 years old and is in the prime of his career and loses in the first round against the 8th seed, with home court advantage, while failing to score 20 points per game.



Perhaps the biggest choke of all time.

How many players have won an FMVP?

Now how many MVP's have lost to the 8th seed?

His wrong was worse than his right. It doesn't make up for it.

It was the worst choke of all time.

There's no ****ing way a first round loss to an 8th seed team can't be made up by winning a championship and finals MVP a few years later. You're insane for even thinking that.

That choke definitely isn't the worst of all time. IMO, LeBron's 2011 finals performance was far worse

Ok, I can get behind LeBron's 2011 choke being worse.

Dirk's 2007 choke is the second worst of all time then? Yeah?

Update: After scoring 20 points today (and forcing OT with the clutch jumper) vs the Jazz, Dirk now stands at 29,831 career points meaning he only has 169 more points to go before reaching the 30k milestone

If Dirk keeps up his current scoring pace, he'll reach 30k a month from now or maybe even a little sooner.

Appreciate the living legend before he officially calls it a career

Regular season superstar. Would always choke when it matters. His only good run in '11 was facilitated by GOAT chokers: Westbrook, Durant, and LeBron "2011" James.

2007. Never forget.

Mavericks have 42 more games left. If Dirk plays the rest of them, he'd need to average at least 7 ppg to get to 30k.
don't worry LeBron will join them next season (around December 2017)

For a guy who lost in the first found against the 8th seed while being mvp i never thought he would redeem himself the way he did.... basically the ultimate redemption, his championship run was one of the greatest things ive ever seen

Dirk is the DEFINITIVE stretch PF in NBA history! At a legit 7 foot tall. Dirk often got knocked for not being like Duncan and KG in terms of defense, boards, or versatility. BUT Dirk was a sick matchup nightmare who was great at the MOST PREMIUM asset in the sport. Which is alpha dog scoring. He had the scoring skillset of the great swingmen to go with his great shooting.

He just wasn't a catch and shoot guy. Dirk had all the scoring tricks. So that uniqueness superceded things he wasn't great at. Dirk winning a ring showed u can win a ring with a dominant stretch PF as your best player. It hasn't been done before or since. And his longevity being an All Star caliber player was great too. Once he slipped from being a superstar, he was still an All Star caliber player for a very good amount of time.
