Josh Boone will be going up against Dirk Nowitzki for the first time tonight . Nowitzki's just the latest assignment for the Nets' undersized center/forward. In an article in tonight's game program, Boone assesses the strengths of big men he's already faced: Shaq is "still a very, very good player", Dwight Howard is "a freak basically", KG "does it all", and Tim Duncan is "the most skilled post player in the league". He's not talking about their weaknesses.
