Best Current Pro Basketball Player

The Top Basketball Player in the world today is Dirk Werner Nowitzki. Standing seven feet tall Nowitzki has emerged as the next big thing in professional basket ball. He has earned success as an eight-time NBA All-Star and eight-time member of the All-NBA Teams. He is the first European-born (Wurzburg, Germany) player in NBA history to receive the NBA's Most Valuable Player award.

Nowitzki was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in 1998 and was the first player in history of NBA, who never attended a United States high school. After an initially rocky start, Nowitzki quickly became one of the top players in the league.

Statistically some say that Dirk may be better than Shaquille O’Neal or even the great Michael Jordan. Nowitzki's most memorable performances were his 53 points against Houston in December 2004 and 51 points against Golden State in 2006. Amazing games. Even his critics are bound to say that his devotion to game of basket ball and maintenance of condition of his body may cause his career to extend over another decade with same level of productivity. If so, we may be calling Nowitzki the best professional basketball player ever, bar none.

Dirk Nowtizki led Germany to a surprising second-place finish in the 2005 European Basketball Championships. He was named MVP of that tournament. Prior to the 2005-06 seasons, Dirk was named as the 2005-06 best international NBA player.

In 2006 Dirk was voted the best international player and European player of the year as well as a member of 2006 all-world basketball first team. He was the leading vote getter to become a member of this team.

Nowitzki's tenacity is displayed by his ability to bounce back after he under-performs. His attitude and passion for the game is unmatched. He has always silenced his critics with his brilliant comebacks.

Without a shadow of doubt Dirk Nowitzki is the finest offensive player currently in the NBA and his undefensible jump shots make him the very best in the game right now. He has got a unique combination of height, speed, and short range shooting prowess. Additionally, Nowitzki’s never give-up attitude and tenaciousness makes him the best basketball player in the world today.
