Turner Gets Inspiration From Watching the Mavs Win the NBA Title

Chargers coach Norv Turner was a happy man recently watching the Dallas Mavs dispatch the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. He spoke to the SD Union-Tribune about watching the Mavs get over the hump – something he really hopes he can get the Bolts to do in 2011.

“Perception can be a lot of different things and it’s not necessarily right,” Turner said. “I loved it with Dirk because the perception was for so many years that he was too soft, that [the Mavericks] can’t win the big game.

“Well, they haven’t been in position to win the big game. Maybe for a number of years they were beaten by the best team in basketball and that kept them from winning the big game. But now the guy goes out and plays great and they put together a heck of a team and they go out and win a championship. Now, [Nowitzki’s] perception has completely changed.

“The reality hasn’t changed. He’s the same guy he’s always been. He might be a little better right now than he was at some point. He may have a better supporting cast. Maybe they didn’t have to beat the Lakers when the Lakers were at their best. So it’s timing and all that.”
