    Dirk Nowitzki is an NBA champion. He has scored more than 30,000 points in his illustrious career. There is no doubt he will be a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame one day. But let's get to the big question.Does Nowitzki run like a baby giraffe? Yes, that's the important one of cheap 2K18 MT Coins. The issue of running form came up during Nowitzki's annual charity baseball game Saturday. Ezekiel Elliott, one of several Cowboys to participate in the event, told the "Big German" he runs like a lot like the tall mammal.

    OK, we've got Nowitzki down. Now, watch an actual baby giraffe. Elliott isn't all that far off here. The style is stiff for both Nowitzki and the baby giraffe, but there are notable differences.While the baby giraffe goes from full sprint to sudden stop, Nowitzki appears to downshift as he approaches first base, realizing he has nearly reached his intended destination. The baby giraffe also gets much more leg separation at a full gallop, whereas Nowitzki takes short, choppy steps down the first-base line.Yes, there is some evidence to support Elliott's claim, but Nowitzki really has a running form all his own. But hey, who needs to be fast when you're a 7-footer who can shoot like this?

    It happens every year: the NBA Draft comes and goes, leaving some familiar faces from the college ranks undrafted.
