Dirk Nowitzki-Dallas Mavericks

It's hard to remember the last time Dirk Nowitzki had a summer off, but in 2009 after years of competing for Germany he finally took a well deserved rest. His countrymen did fairly well without him, but they certainly would have been better had this 2.13m forward been available. For club side the Dallas Mavericks Nowitzki turned in yet another MVP like season, averaging 25.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.
