VIDEO: Dirk Nowitzki on the Western Conference arms race – “It’s madness”

Dallas Mavericks verteran spoke with DAZN back in his home country of Germany yesterday and one topic was at the top of his mind – the huge trades that have gone down in the Western Conference with Paul George heading to Oklahoma City, Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets and Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“It’s incredible how the top teams build their talented squads and trade one player after another,” Nowitzki said. “It’s madness but everyone wants to compete with Cleveland and the Warriors.

“Nowdays that’s only possible with more than one superstar in one team.

“Chris Paul’s trade to Houston was surprising and Paul George was sent to Oklahoma. It’s incredible what’s going on right now. Everyone’s trying to compete with the top two teams.”
