Dirk Nowitzki and Andrew Bogut haven’t been teammates for very long, but Nowitzki is already excited about the partnership. He heaped some high praise on the former Golden State Warrior, and even credited him for a big part of the Warriors offensive success last season.
Steph Curry had an amazing year and won his second MVP award, but Nowitzki thinks that Bogut is just as much responsible for that as Steph is.
Dirk on @andrewbogut: "He sets unbelievable screens. Playing with him the last two weeks, it's no wonder Steph (Curry) was always open."

It’ll be interesting to see how Curry performs this year with a downgrade at center, and it’ll also be interesting to see how Nowitzki and Bogut link up. Nowitzki is a very good shooter, and if Bogut really creates as many shots as Dirk claims he does, then he might put up some Curry numbers.
