Good Job Dirk... You can opt out or stay in Dallas.. Drink until you find the solution... Your girlfriend is locked up... You might not wanna stay in Dallas... I say opy out find out how much your worth at 31 or 32 n find out where you can win that championship... James, Wade, and Bosh... Wait to see where they sign and maybe become a second or third option... You deserve a title Dirk

Ummm, Dirk's team is eliminated from the playoffs. This was taken two days after his elimination. It's his offseason. How does this prove he cares nothing about winning and losing?



Again, a superstar athlete partying isn't news.

Dirk is known for clean living during the season and isn't much for partying. One of the good guys in the league. What's the big deal about him having a good time?

He is an adult and he is not a weird Mormon or something.

I like Dirk. He's a heck of a ball player. The Mavericks being outsted in the first round is NOT his fault. One man can not carry a team, especially against the Spurs. Dirk brings it every single night.



That said, this picture is quite comical. Seeing Dirk tower abouve everybody else gave me a chuckle. He does look a tad bit out of place.



Those girls have probably never seen anybody that tall before, at least up close. Not to mention, dollar signs are probably passing though their heads LOL.

You people are pathetic. Seriously, Dirk is a tireless player and gym rat. To claim that this makes him a loser, proves he is a loser or damages some image is just a tired claim. No one that works in any profession at such a high level who does not have balance in their life is not a success. Balance mean finding some me time, and if that means he wants a drink then let him. There are very few better than him in the NBA currently and very few that will ever be better. Sure, there are better and have been and will be but few. Being that good at something means that you take time to not burn out, period.

Just wondering why folks are brininging his friend's name into it. Putting her and Dirk's business out in the street doesn't make sense.

Based on the bottle shape, he appears to be drinking Patron Tequila---and to the person who doesn't understand why someone would drink tequila straight (they equated it to tasting like gasoline): Patron is "sipping" tequila----it's too expensive and tasty to mix with mixers or juices unless you simply want a "top shelf" Margarita. I understand the poster not liking liquor but many people do like the taste...but also drink responsibly.
