TNT's Craig Sager talked to Mavs All-Star Dirk Nowitzki before he checked into the game Sunday. Here' s what went down:
Sager: Well, Dirk, now we're at a Plan B for this proposed trade. We talked to you last week about how excited you were to possibly play with Jason Kidd, then you found out you weren't. Now it may be on again. What does this mean to you and the Dallas Mavericks if it is on?
Dirk: Well, you know, I think I want to make sure that it really is on before I comment on it. I think this has been the weirdest week for everyone involved, so I want to hear it with my own ears that the deal went through and then I'll be more than happy to comment on it.
Sager: Have you talked to Jason Kidd this weekend? And if so, what was that conversation like?
Dirk: Now more than ever, you don't really see each other. He's on the East team right now. You know, just mingling and being friends I guess.
