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.
