      21 seasons is not loyality - it's love!
      (Love = if fidelity makes fun 🤷‍♀️)
      (...) And shock seized the assembled crowd,
      As the two held each other in their arms,
      Crying for pain and joy.
      No eye was without tears,
      And the wondrous tale is relayed to the king,
      Who, feeling a human stirring,
      Quickly had them brought before the throne.
      He gazed upon them long in amazement,
      And then spoke: “You have succeeded,
      You have turned my heart,
      In truth, fidelity is no idle delusion,
      So accept me also as your friend,
      I would be - grant me this request -
      The third in your band!”
      -Friedrich Schiller, Die Bürgschaft (1798)
      "(...) Und Erstaunen ergreifet das Volk umher,
      In den Armen liegen sich beide,
      Und weinen für Schmerzen und Freude.
      Da sieht man kein Auge tränenleer,
      Und zum Könige bringt man die Wundermähr,
      Der fühlt ein menschliches Rühren,
      Läßt schnell vor den Thron sie führen.
      Und blicket sie lange verwundert 😮 an,
      Drauf spricht er: Es ist euch gelungen,
      Ihr habt das Herz mir bezwungen,
      Und die Treue, sie ist doch kein leerer Wahn,
      So nehmet auch mich zum Genossen an,
      Ich sei, gewährt mir die Bitte,
      In eurem Bunde der dritte."
      Der" Nowitzki way" ist, wenn Gegner vor lauter Bewunderung plötzlich Freunde werden wollen.... 😏
      (Nowitzki way is if haters suddenly wanna be friends...)

      @Michael Fleming In the 2011 Finals against Dirk, LeBron and his hand-picked superteam got spanked 4-2 by the aging Mavericks with only one All-Star. LeBron's 4th quarter scoring: Game 2: 2 pts. Game 3: 2 pts. Game 4: ZERO pts. Game 5: 2 points. In Game 4 he totaled just 8 pts, and lost even when Dirk was sick. He had more turnovers for the series than anyone on either team. He was seriously outplayed by the smaller, aging Jason Terry. This is why he has lost twice as many Finals as he's won.

    • Macho Turbo
      Macho Turbo Year ago +1

I tell you this my brothers soccer will be the number 1 sport in America by the year 2070 A.D. Soccer will be the number 1 sport in all 50 American states by the year 2100 A.D tyf

      @pride you are absolutely right about that. It's the we played the game and what he did for the game. That's what makes Michael Jordan the greatest ever. Dirk change the way the game was played. So you could make the case that he could be the goat because of that reason. You literally change the game from an inside game to a three point game. Only one other person changed the game completely. That was Jordan
      Says a lot about Dirk.

    NBA fans not in Dallas & who aren't Mavs fans so undervalue and underrate him. They know nothing about his game, or think he's legitimate & deserving of his accolades. They don't recognize how much of a transcendent player he is/was to the league..which is a big deal. Again, they undervalue him. The Nation needs to give him more love.

Beside my team winning the championship, I almost cried to see him win a title, and what ppl said about him, and destroyed the heat.

Then in 2011 finals He took over that game and single handed ky beat the Miami Heat team. Nobody has represented the game of basketball any better than Dirk.

    I simply love, how the three-pointer rushes through the net after the 30.000. As if there was nothing to it. Naturalness in perfection. If I had to name the greatest moment in sports that I've witnessed live (on TV), it would be the day Dirk and the Mavericks won the title in Game 6 in 2011: Middle of the night, German time, somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany, my dad and I and a shaky internet stream. Memories!

    I've Been To A Few Games. I Am In Dallas And I've Been A Dirk Fan Since Him And Nash Were Picked Up. Dirk Is Probably 1 Of The Most Underrated Players Ever. He Sits With The Greatest Players Ever Now. He Is A True Legend Whether They Want To Give Him His Respect Or Not.

    Never mentioned in the same vain as Bird, yet plays similarly and is statistically superior in every way. The only major difference is that Dirk didn't have a god tier team for a decade that allowed him to fill up a hand with rings. Still won one with a mediocre squad though.

    Watching this Hurst as a long time dirk fan I rocked with him before his first all-star break,mvp season,tough finals lost to Wade's heat,2011 Champs(most underrated playoff run and difficulty along the way) and now this str8 into retirement.thus said I will this generation of players Dirk, Duncan,the Black Mamba 8/24RipKing, kg,pau gasol , Nash, Amar'e,Pierce, Allen, rondo, Iggy,mcgrady can't believe vi almost forgot him,Kenyon Martin,Turkgolu,etc..it was so competitive ,so many different styles of offensive weapons,toughness and TBH those champs have more meaning to me even tho I'm a big fan of basketball still..MDF guys I can't believe I forget Manu ,and Parker ,Vince Carter so much niggas was hard back then literally it was never a for gone conclusion who would win the champ cause it was always numerous of teams that provided a huge threat!!! 2000 decade had pure Cold BloodedMonster!!

    Worked as news Photog and did lots of sports. This took time to make. Editing was good. Fast cuts but not too fast. Slower cuts when needed. Kept my attention and focus. I love hoops but even if I didn't I think this was well done.

    This is one of the greatest moments in german sports history ... maybe one of, if not the biggest one apart from football (Soccer ...).
    Do you think that more than 2% of the ppl in germany know about this? :D
    "Yo Dirk is in the 30 k club, it´s unreal dude!"
    "Oh yea i know him ofc, he´s playing in the NBA right?"
    "He makes these DibaDu commercials, nice guy!"
    "Yea ... "
    It really is frustrating, even American Football is more popular than Basketball in Germany ... well, some of us know what this meant for german sport, he´s one of the Top 5 sportsmen in german history!
