The Plan for Dirk Nowitzki in his 20th Season

Dirk Nowitzki is entering his 20th season in the NBA and playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Something that is just insane to think about every time.

But once you get past all the nostalgia, then you think about the actual role he will have on the team.

First off, Dirk is a starter and Rick Carlisle made that pretty clear to me last year after a practice. But even though he starts, we all know Nowitzki’s minutes will be monitored and scaled back like they have been in over the past few years.

Now, it’s his 20th season and it will be interesting to see how everyone talks about his upcoming season.

Dirk has been pretty open about his health determining how long his career will last, but what exactly will he say about it on media day?

Will Rick Carlisle give a minute limit for Dirk? Will they embrace his 20th season or treat it just like another season?
