Dirk's the NBA MVP!

Well...not really -- at least, not so far. But according to an "exclusive survey" of NBA general managers just posted at RealGM.com, Dirk Nowitzki did snatch the Most Valuable Player award, just edging out Phoenix Sun and former Mavs teammate and drinking buddy Steve Nash. Dirk got 17 first-place votes and eight second-place votes for a total of 109 points, while Nash came in second with 82 points.

Which means absolutely nothing: The GMs also chose the Mavs' Avery Johnson as their Coach of the Year -- a day after the award went to Toronto Raptors' head coach Sam Mitchell. --Robert Wilonsky
