Dirk Nowitzki has long been one of the more fun personalities in the NBA.  From his announcing abilities to his quirky set of moves one the floor, he’s just an all around fun watch.  He’s also a fun follow on Twitter because he gets to the questions we’ve all been wondering about. For example, here’s the question he posed last night.

That over/under of 5.7 seconds is probably about right. You’re talking offensive linemen levels of speed there. Chandler Parsons, Dirk’s teammate with the Mavericks, has Nowitzki in the race.

Alright, so we’ve got a vote for each side. The Dallas Mavericks official account took it upon themselves to poll their followers.

This race needs to happen. Please sports gods, if you grant us nothing else, please give us this race.
