Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Predrag Stojakovic of the Sacramento Kings are skilled in the ways that older generations of basketball players were skilled: ball-handling, passing, cutting, and shooting.
And even if that was all Dirk and Peja brought to the floor for their teams, they would still have a major impact, because the art of shooting is lost in today's NBA.
Just like Nowitzki in the paint, it's difficult to know when to push up on Peja defensively--you have to start thinking about defending him when he's as far as three or four steps behind the three-point line.

 Review on Dirk Nowitzki by MovieFan90 - MouthShut.com
Nowitzki spent over 4 yrs in Germany and just like other European players like Toni Kukoc and Vlade Divac that hard experience in playing overseas has obviously molded this respectable player into what he is, a good player who like Shaq on occasion can dominate the game.
Now Nowitzki is at full health and the Mavs look like their seriously going to go deep and it’s all due to the fact that they have worked hard to get to this point and believed in themselves.
If the Mavs go all the way it definitely be due to Dirk Nowitzki’s contribution to the team, the Mavs will go as far players like Nowitzki and Finley will take them, so this is one team to keep an eye out for.
