Dirk Nowitzki and Eminem

Few have been doing it longer and better in their respective arenas than Eminem and Dirk Nowitzki. After coming in as relative outsiders — Em, a White MC, Dirk, a German in an American league — they earned respect of their peers and fans early and haven't stopped since. Whatever speedbumps and signs of slowing down they've shown have been minimal.
