08:10 AM ET 08.27 | In between answering questions about his favorite color and his favorite ice cream flavor, Dirk Nowitzki made some news during an impromptu Q&A Sunday on Twitter Sunday. The 34-year-old Mavericks forward responded to one question asking how many more years he wanted to play with: "2 for sure and then see how I feel." Nowitzki has two years remaining on the four-year, $80 million deal he signed in 2010. When asked why he doesn't just jump to a "Super Team" and try to win a championship elsewhere, Nowitzki replied: "I bleed blue." Those are positive signs for Mavericks fans after a tough summer of pursuing Deron Williams and losing out on the Brooklyn point guard.

"Then see how I feel"?

You mean you will see how much the cheque is?

I don't think Pierce is going anywhere either.More than likely Wade will retire a heat as he has indicated he will....

Wade's body may fail him prior to his contract

Why is that hate! It's the truth, he plays hard but his body won't last.

QUOTE(#3):

Kudos for you Dirk. Why ruin your legacy in Dallas when you've had everything w/ them. There will be only 3 players in the current era that could say they stayed w/ 1 team and won it all. Kobe, Duncan, and Dirk...

Udonis Haslem?

QUOTE(#13):

Really?Cause if memory serves me correctly, didn't he say and I quote " If Wade & Lebron asked me to join them I would have listened".He has stayed because most of the years especially his prime years he made the playoffs with the mavs.Since he won a title, he isn't going anywhere.I can guarantee you if he didn't have a title, he would have ventured to another team in search of one.Just ask Nash.Heck Barkley bashes super teams and he teamed up twice and still failed.

Barkley was traded to these teams and didn't ask to be. He just wanted out of Philly 'cause they lost so much despite his dominance.
