Nowitzki’s aging could be reason why Championship roster blew up, not Cuban

Dirk Nowitzki was asked about retirement plans the other day, on a local news report, and he himself, the great German was questioning how much he has left in his body.    Now that interview may or may not have provoked fear into some, or all Mavs’ fans after hearing that, but let’s be honest here, it’s not something that should come as  a surprise to anybody, we knew, that realistically, the 2011 Mavericks championship run was likely Dirk’s last shot, his last- realistic shot at glory, and this is whether or not Mark Cuban did have anything to do with “blowing up the Mavericks Championship roster”.       Though not even I can lie, that was a good team, and  when Nowitzki had his off-games in the Finals, and he did, he had his backup to count on.    In the monkey killer of  game 6,  Nowitzki struggled to look even okay.     He had backup; he  had Jason Terry.    The Mavericks, in case you have been living under a rock, no longer have Terry, anymore.    He’s not the only one they lost.      – –  –    And it shouldn’t take rocket science to figure out why others decided to leave the team.         A leader was aging, and hey, I guess you can’t completely blame them for leaving, they knew he didn’t have too much gas left.
