Dirk Nowitzki Announces He Will Retire After 2018-19 Season
Apr 11, 2019, 00:31
As the 40-year-old has provided Mavericks faithful with a number of memories including the franchise's lone title in 2011, it comes as no surprise that he was honoured accordingly on such a momentous occasion. Nowitzki reached that spot last season, but LeBron James passed him.
Nowitzki added that he was "super, super emotional" as he addressed the crowd, according to USA Today.
Nowitzki, sitting at 31,540 points with one game left, gave the home crowd another thrill last month by passing Wilt Chamberlain to regain sixth on the career scoring list.
"I promise you that you have a job for life, I don't care what you do", Cuban continued, to roars from fans. He's the nicest man ever. You may look at the numbers and (see) I'm only taking six shots a game.
It wasn't just the Mavericks who acted as if it were Nowitzki's final go-round. I'm truly trying to see others grow. "If I get to see any improvement, if it's still fun, and I guess we're going to make that decision later".
The German power forward played all 21 seasons with the Mavericks. It's expected that Nowitzki will pass on joining former teammate Vince Carter, who has said he plans to return for a record 22nd season. "The first thing people say is 'What's this guy like, what's this guy like?' Cause all of these guys are great players".
But still, there was a basketball game to be played, and throughout the course of his brilliant, 21-year career in the league, Nowitzki has proven to be a master showman.
As fate would have it, a similar Jordan mark fell during the contest when Phoenix's Jamal Crawford scored 51 points at age 39, becoming the oldest player to top 50 in a game, but the night was all about the greatest player in Mavs history.
