Nowitzki accomplished so much for the city of Dallas as well. The combination has led to a plethora of awards and honors. They continue to roll even after his retirement.

Dirk earned a lot of respect from his peers as well. Mavericks fans remember Nowitzki’s idols praising him during his retirement announcement. The words of Charles Barkley were perfect that night. Fans can relive them here.

Dirk Nowitzki earned some praise from a fellow NBA player in recent days. Here is the latest.

Kuzma says Dirk is “most underrated”

Lakers second year forward Kyle Kuzma replied to a tweet from Ballislife.com. See it here.

Kuzma is on to something here. Nowitzki is a top-ten player of all-time, but he does not always get that respect. Dirk is an inner circle Hall of Famer, so to be most underrated too is quite the combination.

Final thoughts

Dallas Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki is the “most underrated” according to Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma.

The Mavericks will be facing something unfamiliar this fall. Dirk will not be on the roster when training camp begins. It will be the first time since 1997. The Mavs are in good hands, though. Luka Doncic will be leading the team with plenty of help behind him. The front office will also be in the mix to add pieces during free agency.
