Rockets and Lakers called with max offers for Dirk Nowitzki, but he rebuffed all outside interest to stay Dallas.

Class. All class. In this era where it's all about showing me the money and team loyalty is an archaic notion, Nowitzki showed nothing but class staying with the Mavericks. It doesn't matter who called or how much they offered. It's a moot point. Thank you, Dirk Nowitzki, for showing the NBA community that there is still a shred of decency somewhere.ANALYST: Howard Bender
