Dirk Nowitzki-Germany and Dallas Mavericks

After too long a wait an emotional Nowitzki led Germany through the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament and into the Olympic Games in Beijing where he topped the team in points and rebounds.  The German also had another fantastic season for club side the Dallas Mavericks, averaging 23.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.  He led the Mavericks into the playoffs where they suffered a disappointing defeat to the New Orleans Hornets.
