Dirk is a champion ...
Re: “Nowitzki’s final home game turns into a lovefest,” Wednesday news story.
Cheers to Dirk for an amazing 21 years as a Dallas Maverick. In addition to bringing the NBA Championship trophy to Dallas, he has been an incredible role model. His humility and selflessness are qualities seemingly rare in superstars and public figures. Equally remarkable is his commitment to play for a single team. Dallas fans are fortunate that our favorite German became a Texan, and we will miss his leadership, not to mention his trademark fadeaway.
Kudos also to the Dallas Mavericks for a fitting farewell after his last home game. Dirk deserves to enjoy time with his wife and three young children, and eat ice cream for breakfast. But since he’s a tennis fan, if he wants a little exercise, he and his wife are welcome to join our team for some mixed doubles.
