Dirk has caught a lot of shit throughout his career and sometimes rightfully so. But no one can deny the performance he put on last year in the 2011 Finals vs. the newly formed Miami Heat. In Game 2, Nowitzki dogged Chris Bosh all night. He brought the Mavs back from 15 down with a couple mid-range jumpers, a layup over Bosh, a three and the game-winning nifty layup that left Bosh suspended in time. In Game 4, he played with a sinus infection that James and Wade mocked in the moments leading up to the Game 5; Dirk delivered. He, Jason Terry and Tyson Chandler led the Mavs back from a 2-1 deficit to win three straight and the series.
