NBA Finals: Dirk Joins Special List

NBA TV just posted a graphic that does a good job of putting Dirk Nowitzki's achievements in perspective. Nowitzki becomes the 11th player in NBA history to make 10+ All-Star Games, to win a regular season MVP and to win a Finals MVP (which, of course, means a championship as well). That list:

↵

Dirk Nowitzki
Magic Johnson
Michael Jordan
Larry Bird
Wilt Chamberlain
Hakeem Olajuwon
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Tim Duncan
Shaquille O'Neal
Kobe Bryant
Moses Malone

↵

It's just so great that Dirk will now forever be on these kinds of lists, rather than ones with Karl Malone on them.
