The Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki has been a monster throughout the 2011 NBA Playoffs. Anyone questioning Nowitzki’s toughness following the finger injury he sustained in Game One of the Finals has been silenced—at least for now.
Last summer, the Miami Heat celebrated themselves as the “Dream Team,” the team to beat this season; and in dispatching the 76ers, Celtics and Bulls to win the Eastern Conference title, they backed it up in convincing fashion. Thus, despite wins over the Trail Blazers, defending champion Lakers [in a 4-game sweep] and the Thunder, the Mavs were generally viewed as the underdogs in the Finals.
If you have a soft spot in your heart for Novitski and the underdog Mavericks, the K1X “Dirk or Die!” T-shirt will look good on you. Get yours for $24.90 at kickz.com and selected retailers.
