Dallas Mavericks: 3 expectations for Dirk Nowitzki this season
By Kohl Rast
The Dallas Mavericks franchise has had the same face for over two decades. Even though this season may mark the end of an era for the Mavs and Mavs fans, Dirk Nowitzki still has some things he wants to accomplish this year. Here are a few things we can expect from the big German.
It is hard to set expectations for a player that has done everything you could have ever thought of and more for a franchise, but I am going to try my best. Dirk Nowitzki has been the greatest player for the Dallas Mavericks franchise for over ten years now. Each year it becomes more and more clear that he is one of the best to ever play the game.
Sadly, there are still plenty of people who don’t see the greatness that the Mavs fans see every single night. The truth is obvious for those of us who are not delusional.
Despite Dirk having done everything that we could have ever hoped for from him, he should still have a handful of expectations this season. As far as players that may underperform go this season, Dirk would definitely be the one that has the least to prove across the league. He will likely overperform yet again, honestly, but if he were to falter this year, it would do absolutely nothing to his legacy.
Now that I have said my peace, let’s talk about expectations for everyone’s favorite Dallas Maverick, Dirk Nowitzki. Some of them will be obvious while others maybe not. Here are three expectations for his final NBA season.
