Dirk Nowitzki made some enemies in this town when, in a playoff series with the Jazz 14 years ago, he infamously said that "Utah is a bad city."

But, according to the Dallas Morning News, there’s more to the story.

"We come back here for Game 2 and there was like one camera guy, and he asked me, ‘So why did you guys not stay in Utah?’ " Nowitzki told the Texas newspaper. "I said, ‘Well, Utah is a bad city,’ meaning it’s the playoffs and we shouldn’t spend too much time there, it’s hostile. I meant going home, sleeping in my own bed is never bad. I come back here and they blew the whole thing up. They were talking about it on the TV that night already. I mean, they were trying to call my hotel room. It was awesome. Then, like I said, I came out with 90 minutes on the clock and they were already booing. Every time I touched the ball to shoot during warmups, they were booing. So that was a good ol’ time."
