Happy 39th birthday, Dirk!

He is a 13-time All-Star, a 12-time All-NBA Team member, and the first European player to start in an All-Star Game, and first to receive the NBA Most Valuable Player Award (2007).

Dirk is the sh*t…One of my favorites of all time. Both on and off the court, he just seems so damn cool. I never got the opportunity to be around but he just seems like of the greatest [expletive] guys ever.
