Dirk loves to share jokes on Twitter, usually about himself getting old, or in this case, roasting past teammates.
He recently tweeted a joke about Steve Nash And Jason Kidd saying, “On way to Springfield. So proud of my guys nashy and jkidd. It’s an honor to say I played with two hall of famers! Unfortunately neither was in their prime….”

A quality joke from Dirk, and hopefully we get to see Nash’s and Kidd’s reaction. Definitely an odd, but funny way to congratulate them on their induction to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Kidd was teammates with Dirk from 2007-2012, winning a memorable championship in 2011 against LeBron and the Heat. Nash signed with the Mavericks in 1998 when Dirk was drafted, which would have formed a great duo in their primes.
Imagine if Dirk played with Nash and Kidd in their prime, it easily could’ve been one of the best big threes ever assembled.
The 13x All-Star, NBA MVP, and NBA champion will be entering his 21st season with the Mavericks. Averaging 21.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game, there is no doubt he will be in the Hall of Fame himself one day.
