Dirk Nowitzki and Dallas Mavericks Agree to Two Year Deal

To say this man is immortal would be an understatement. Dirk Nowitzki, arguably the greatest international player to have play in the NBA, will lace them up for a few more seasons.

As of last night, Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks agreed to a two-year deal which guarantees him roughly $10 million total over that duration.

This will mark his 20th season in the NBA. The 13-time all-star averaged 14.2 points and 6.5 rebounds this past season on roughly 25 minutes per game.

There is no doubt that Nowitzki will be a future hall of famer. He led the Mavs to a championship in 2011 while also taking home the MVP award in the 2006-2007 season.

There really never has been a player like Dirk. He came into the league when drafting international players was unheard of. He proved everyone wrong by being one of the best talents in the league over the past two decades.

Unfortunately, the Mavericks have not been a very successful team as of late. This past season, they finished 33-49 which left them at 11th in the Western Conference.

When it comes down to it, Dirk just doesn’t seem like he would fit in any other uniform. He has, and always will be, a Dallas Maverick.

“At the end of the day, I just can’t imagine myself in a different uniform,” he said in April, per the Associated Press’ Schuyler Dixon (via NBA.com). “If we’re rebuilding, then I’m the face of that.”

At 39 years old, he cannot of course be the all-star he once was. He has proven, however, that he can still be a solid contributor for this organization.
