No. 9: Dirk Nowitzki (Germany)
The only reason that the former NBA MVP, Finals MVP, and multiple All-Star is this low is because he has missed more than half the season due to injury. The German sharpshooter has since returned and although he has shown some rust, he has also begun to show flashes of greatness again. Although he’s still finding his rhythm, the Mavs’ recent run of quality wins has coincided with Nowitzki’s re-entry into the starting lineup.
