German Engineering in the NBA
Dirk Nowitzki has been the toast of the NBA for everyone who does not live in Miami because he is the only force standing in the way of the "evil" LeBron James, and what a force he is. Because of Nowitzki, Germany now has yet another engineering superiority when compared to the USA. Nowitzki has created a formula that makes him an unstoppable force. According to Sports Science on ESPN, Nowitzki normally shoots the ball from just under ten feet (the distance from the floor to the rim), making his normal shot already extremely difficult to block. Additionally, when Dirk does his awkward one-legged fade aways, he creates an angle that would require someone to have his hand the better part of 11 feet off the ground (getting more impossible). To cap it all off, Dirk shields his body further by kicking his other leg forward to create even more space for him to get his shot off making his shot unblockable. And we've all seen what Dirk can do when he gets a clean shot off. In case you haven't, ask any Trailblazers, Lakers, Thunder, or Heat fan and they'll tell you. Where and how long do you think Mark Cuban's celebration will be if the Mavericks should win this final?
