Trivia Time: Dirk Edition

Posted: June 14, 2011 by Keith Stone in Dirk Nowitzki, trivia

So Dirk Nowitzki is having a good week. NBA Title. Finals MVP. Drinking expensive champagne. It’s a little known fact that he wasn’t originally drafted by the Mavericks but part of a shrewd trade made by Don Nelson, who had fallen in love with Dirk. Of course he fell in love with Dirk! Munich is so romantic. That brings us to our Question of the Week. If you get it right, Mark Cuban will give you a billion dollars. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Which team originally drafted Dirk Nowitzki and who was he traded for? (and a hint: it is not the Berlin Globetrotters and Detlef Schrempf)

Answer: The Milwaukee Bucks drafted Dirk Nowitzki with the ninth pick in the 1998 NBA Draft and traded him to Dallas with Pat Garrity for Robert “Tractor” Traylor.
