A Ranking You’ll Find Hard to Believe
Dirk Nowitzki isn’t one of the 10 most popular NBA players in Europe.
I know. What gives?
Technically, I guess, it’s his uniform that isn’t so loved as Dirk’s No. 41 isn’t among the NBA’s just-released list of most popular jerseys across the pond. Kobe Bryant is No. 1. Jose Calderon of the Toronto Raptors is No. 10. Sandwiched in between are a bunch of guys not named Nowitzki.
Last time I checked Germany was in Europe. Dirk is a former MVP. A perennial All-Star. Even a stalwart of Germany’s National Team that played in the Olympics last summer.
