Nowitzki sympathizes with Romo

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

If there’s anybody in the Dallas Metroplex area who kinda, sorta understands what Tony Romo is going through (he’s awesome, he sucks, he’s awesome, he sucks, blah, blah, blah!), it’s Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki.

The boys from the Eye on Basketball blog write about this tweet sent out by Nowitzki that reads,

A nice gesture by Nowitzki, to be sure. But Royce Young also makes a good point. Nowitzki has never seen the vitriol that Romo feels on a week to week basis.

Writes Young, “What you heard is nothing like what Tony Romo is getting. Nobody ever genuinely wanted the Mavericks to bench or trade Dirk. No one ever thought it would be best to part ways with him. It was always just about how Dirk couldn't win big and that was pretty much it. No doubt, he heard the chatter and had plenty of it. But Romo's on another planet in terms of that.”
