Did Miley Cyrus model her tongue game after Dirk Nowitzki?

Somehow, someway, the one and only Miley Cyrus continues to find her name in the sports blogosphere. This time it’s for one of her trademark moves, and how similar it is to an NBA baller’s.

Dirk Nowitzki has long rocked the side tongue on the basketball court, and it appears Miley has picked up her new look from the German wunderkind.

Jason Gallagher of BallerBall.com has put together some pretty damning research that suggests the Queen of Twerk has been studying Nowitzki’s tongue game.
