It would have been cool if Rasho and Nazr could have dished out some hard fouls on Dirk. About the only way they could have done so is stick their foot out from the bench and trip him when he was running by. I do think Dirk does reserve respect because he's a top player in the league. And sure, if Elson throws him around some, cool.
