Great follow up game to Monday.
He's an extremely good shooter with impressive range, and he is unusually tall for what he does. And he also has long arms so he gets his shot off at will. Basically anytime he was guarded one on one Dirk had his way and you have to respect that. The criticism comes because he is soft in the paint for a guy his size, and has a ***** attitude, which is the vibe guys like DWest pick up. Its virtually assured that West would stomp Dirk in a physical confrontation despite the size advantage because Dirk lacks toughness. Im pretty sure he is scared of David West.
