With the recent rumors floating around about Dirk Nowtizki‘s departure from the Dallas Mavericks, many people in the sports world have had to chance to chime in on the situation. For teammate David Lee, he has come to accept that the Big German is not leaving the team, according to this video of him on TMZ:

Lee happened to play on the championship Golden State Warriors team last season. He was a prominent role player on the team until he suffered an unfortunate hamstring injury that sidelined him just before the preseason ended. He was replaced by Draymond Green, and he has filled his role effectively ever since then.

Although Lee did not get the chance to play as much with these NBA legends, he sure has been around them in recent times. Maybe his insight is all the insight Mavericks fans need to rest peacefully.
