15. "The Big German Goes M.I.A."
PLAYER: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
COMPLEX SAYS: As the 2007 playoffs got under way, few thought the No. 1 seed Mavericks would have any trouble with the No. 8 seed Golden State Warriors. After all, the Mavs had the MVP. Well, Nowitzki was nowhere to be found in a decisive Game 6 as he shot 2-13 from the field. We'd like the German translation for: "MVP? My ass!"
