Monday Mavs Donuts: Simmons On Dirk

Bill Simmons says WHAT about Dirk? ... Let's talk about clutch, bay-bee. ... I'm inviting you to a Super Bowl party in Dallas but it won't cost $1000 a plate, you won't catch anything from Pam Anderson, and the ball is much rounder ...

DONUT 1: Let's start our Monday Morning Mavs Donuts with a close-up look at the post-game exodus from the floor …

DONUT 2: Is Kobe really as "clutch'' as you think he is?

DONUT 3: Or is it actually Dirk Nowitzki who is one of the top coupla clutch scorers in the NBA? That case is illustrated in numbers (and Boards discussion) here …

DONUT 4: And as if that's not enough, here comes Bill Simmons, The Sports Guy and Celtics/Bird fanatic, actually breaking down the possibility that, as he puts it, "you can make a great case that Dirk Nowitzki was better than Larry Bird.''

Bill Simmons. I always liked that boy.
