Dirk Nowitzki Claims That Shaun Livingston Complimented His Package, And Boys Will Be Boys

What do you do when you’re a point guard and you get caught on a switch against the most lethal-shooting seven footer in the history of the game? Punch him in the nuts and pray for the best, of course. And that’s exactly what Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livington did last Saturday night.

Nowitzki and Livingston eventually chalked it up to horseplay, but the NBA hit Livingston with a one game suspension.

The incident was brought up at a Mavericks season ticket holder event at Six Flags on Monday. And Nowitzki was not shy to publicize Livingston’s thoughts on his package.


Whether Livingston said it or not is irrelevant, perception is everything. As far as I’m concerned, Dirk is rocking a rope under those Mavs shorts. And I’d be perfectly fine without that image never entering my head again.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
