The star forward also said he needs about 100 tickets for friends and family to attend Saturday's exhibition game against Alba Berlin, which sold out in less than an hour.
"That's not bad for having never played in Germany," Nowitzki said. "I told the NBA, for all the crap I've been doing for them for 14 years, they better hook me up with a bunch of tickets."
"I have to say it’s the first time since I’ve owned the Mavs when I’ve walked downstairs and saw our centers taking jump shots and that I didn’t cringe," owner Mark Cuban said.
How stupid does Cuban feel for keeping Dojo and Roddy over Lin, given the fact that Lin outperformed both of those idiots in the summer league and Roddy and Dojo will amount to nothing?
Jason Kidd was on the Ben & Skin Show a few minutes ago. Here is what he had to say:
On Playing vs. Denver: I gotta go through a practice first, [...] gotta see what happens today. [...] I feel a lot better and hopefully I'll be out there this week.
On Cryotherapy: I think cryotherapy is excellent for anybody, not just athletes. [...] I tried it out in April and I felt great throughout the playoffs.
In His First Cryotherapy: I wasn't scared, it was just something new. Just understanding [how it works]. Since you don't get wet, how do you get cold?
On Cryotherapy As Their Secret Weapon Last Year: We thought it was our secret weapon, because of what it did and how it made everyone feel. [...] We definitely used it during the Portland and L.A. series.
On Usage Frequency: I try to use it 2-3 times [per week], because if you go every day the body will become immune to it. You gotta make sure you don't abuse it.
On How Far Things Have Come Technology Wise: Yeah, it's night and day. I mean we still use ice bags, [...] but you can see now the technology of the cutting edge medicine of being able to get into these different chambers and see your body heal and also be able to perform at a higher level as you get older.
On Barkley's Comments: Everybody is different and I think Dirk is far from gone. We all have gotten up to a slow start, but look were right there at the 6th place I think. And we still haven't played anywhere close to [what we're capable of]. We all understand, coming into the second half [of the season] we all want to be healthy [...] and have the opportunity to defend our title.
