Default Harrison Barnes is the best teammate Dirk ever had

Aside from Steve Nash.

I mean really, who was better?

Antawn Jamison? No.
Michael Finley? Arguable, but probably no
Tyson Chandler? No
Shawn Marion? No
Caron Butler? No
J.J Barea? Lol, no
Jason Terry? No
Jason Kidd? No
Antoine Walker? No
Josh Howard? No
Dennis Smith Jr? No
Jerry Stackhouse? No
Raef LaFentz? No
Nick Van Excel? No

Shame that Cuban never got Dirk a real star to play with. The Mavs during Dirk's career (aside from the Finley/Nash/Walker/Jamison team) have always been sneaky hot garbage. Even the '11 title team was basically sneaky hot garbage, they just happened to get an ATG effort from Dirk and all the role players played over their heads (yes, and LeBron happened too).

PS - Supposedly Paul Pierce almost got traded there before KG and Allen came to Boston. That would have been interesting.

PPS - Harrison Barnes is underrated

Terrible take. Guys like, Finley, Kidd, Howard, Terry, Jamison, Chandler etc all had a much bigger positive impact on the court. You have no idea what you are blabbering on about.

Yeah I mean outside of one of the best PG's ever.

The same guy who won the ****ing MVP the season right after leaving Dallas and then eliminated them out of the playoffs.

Please. Compare that to what KG had in Minnesota.

Statistically, Barnes has an argument, but today's NBA is easy to put up stats.

Realistically, Dirk has had much more talented and impactful teammates than Barnes.

Fixed lol at Harrison Barnes being underated probably the most unimpactful 20 point scorer in NBA history.
