Straight from the Mavs:
Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was named All-NBA Second Team, the NBA announced today. It is the eighth consecutive season Nowitzki has been named All-NBA and the third time he has garnered Second Team honors (2001-02, 2002-03).
“It is always an honor to make the All-NBA Team,” Nowitzki said. “And to be recognized along with so many talented players means a lot to me.”
Nowitzki averaged a team-high 23.6 points (ranked 7th in the NBA), a team-high 8.6 rebounds, a career-high 3.5 assists and 36.0 minutes in 77 starts. He shot 47.9% from the field, 35.9% from 3-point range and 87.9% from the free throw line (10th in NBA). Nowitzki finished the season with 20 games of 30+ points and 25 double-doubles.
In five postseason games, Nowitzki averaged a double-double of 26.8 points and 12.0 rebounds (both team highs) to go with 4.0 assists and 1.4 blocks in 42.2 minutes per game.
Nowitzki remains the only Mavericks player in franchise history to be named All-NBA First Team (2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07) and is one of only three players (Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan) to be named to an All-NBA Team in each of the past eight seasons.
Nowitzki is joined on the Second Team by Tim Duncan (San Antonio Spurs), Amaré Stoudemire (Phoenix Suns), Steve Nash (Phoenix Suns) and Deron Williams (Utah Jazz).
