Slightly better in a few categories. Amar'e is blocking a lot of shots this year, but his defensive rating is worse than Nowitzki's.

From an offensive perspective, Nowitzki has been very efficient this year. He's shooting 52%, which is amazing when you consider how many 3s he takes. Dirk's PPG would probably be higher than Stoudemire's if he took the same number of shots.

Also don't forget that Nowitzki was battling an injury this season to which made him miss quite a few games.
He missed 9 games. But that might actually turn out to be a positive, because it demonstrated just how crucial Dirk is to the Mavericks offense. Dallas was 2-7 without Dirk but have a 53-18 record when he is in the lineup.

I think Dirk will probably make 1st team.
