AM: At 37 years old, Dirk Nowitzki is still the leader of this team and is well within range of potentially posting a 50-40-90 season. How much longer do you feel he’ll be able to perform to that standard?

JK: I don’t even know what to say about Dirk anymore. I have generally had the utmost confidence in him, but what’s he’s been able to accomplish thus far this season has been nothing short of astounding. At 37-years old he’s still as dangerous a scorer as we have in the league, even as the focal point of an offense that hasn’t yet hit its stride.

If Wesley Matthews and Chandler Parsons return to form, and I believe they will sooner rather than later, Dirk’s job becomes easier. Because of that I think he maintains this type of efficiency offensively for as long as he continues to lace ’em up.
