Methinks Rick's the one who's been smoking the peyote.

I like Dirk, and I respect Rick, but I can rattle off five all time PF's who are better than Dirk without much effort. Calling Dirk top 10 all time when he's not even top 5 at his position is a little strange.

Don't look too much into this. This is just Rick throwing his support behind his players. He has always done this. It reminds me of him calling reporters and actively campaigning for his players to receive awards. Wallace/Artest for DPOY, JO for MVP, etc.
