LA LAKERS 2000-2003 season won't be the same without him.

6 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

He's carried the weight of Dallas on his shoulders for such a long time that no other player has done for any other side.. And he almost single handedly took Dallas to the nba title this year.. What more qualities can you expect for in the greatest player of the decade..

Make a huge contribution on Dallas.

Look at Garnett throughout the decade with the Minnesota Timberwolves he was the heart and soul of the team rarely was he ever surrounded by someone who could take the burden off of him as being the best player on the team. He then moved to Boston and brought home his first NBA championship. Garnett for the decade has averaged:
