Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki has accomplished so much in his 21-year NBA career. Here is a look at his top ten achievements.
How do you accurately sum up the career of a player in the NBA? For some players that don’t have a long and illustrious career, it can be simple. However, for someone like Dirk, where do you start?
Here is a look at Dirk Nowitzki‘s top ten accomplishments over his storied career.
10. Charity work for the community
Dirk has dazzled for years on the court and finally brought a championship home to his Dallas team. However, he is an all-star off of the court as well.
Nowitzki has been known for his contributions to the community in various forms. He has made several appearances at local schools and hospitals to brighten the days of children there. Dirk has granted several wishes for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Perhaps one of the biggest charity events that Dirk is responsible for is his annual celebrity baseball game held at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. Dirk and several other athletes get together every year to raise money for a good cause.
He can often be seen at these events posing for pictures with adoring fans, or signing autographs for some time after the event. Dirk and his crew put on a fantastic show every year in front of a sell out crowd.
Another event that Nowitzki holds every year is a celebrity tennis tournament. The proceeds from this tournament go toward the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation. This charity is designed to help children in need with their wellness, health, and education. Dirk established this foundation in 2001, and they have been helping children ever since.
