Dirk has no hard feelings for Landry

I'm not sure exactly what to make of Erick Dampier questioning the toughness of Rockets forward Carl Landry.

Maybe there is some bad blood there. However, Dirk Nowitzki has no hard feelings for the dude whose left a couple of teeth in his elbow earlier this month.

It's not like Landry meant to foul Dirk's elbow with his face. The gruesome collision left Dirk with a nasty gash on his shooting elbow, but Landry definitely got the worst of it. He had five teeth knocked out or broken, leading to five hours of emergency dental surgery.

Dirk tracked down Landry's number the next day. They exchanged text messages, making sure each knew there was no ill will.

Landry seemed pretty tough when he returned after missing only one game. The Sixth Man of the Year frontrunner has averaged 20.4 points and 5.8 rebounds in five games since gettig his grill rearranged.
