Dirk and Duncan, two franchise icons. They played over 100 times, won 6 total championships, and have 3 MVPs between them. Their once great rivalry is fitting to their equally successful careers.
So few players spend their entire career with one organization. The longer their career lasts, the more likely it becomes time for a change. For Dirk, that change has all been able to take place within the organization.
Good things do not always happen to those who wait, but when it comes to 41, there is no better example of loyalty paying off.
