Dallas Mavericks: See every Dirk Nowitzki make from his final season
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki just concluded his 21st and final season. See every made field goal from his last year.
Dallas Mavericks icon Dirk Nowitzki scored 31,560 points in his Hall of Fame career. That places him sixth on the NBA all-time scoring list. It is just one of the many ways Dirk proved he is one of the best basketball players in history.
The Mavericks and their fans were lucky to have 21 seasons with Nowitzki on their team. He led them to a title in 2011. Dirk also won the MVP in 2007. His career was more than accomplishments, though. Nowitzki is the Dallas Mavericks. He is the face of the franchise. The two parties will always be synonymous with one another.
Dirk’s final season did not go according to plan, though. He had an ankle surgery that ended his 2017-2018 campaign, and a setback caused Nowitzki to miss the beginning of the year. Dirk played his first game on Dec. 13. The legend was slowed by injuries for much of the season.
It did not stop him from producing plenty of memorable moments. Nowitzki made 135 field goals this season, and the Mavericks released a video with every single one of them. Here it is for fans to enjoy.
Dirk Nowitzki changed the game of basketball. He showed flashes of his patented jumper and incredible ability to stretch the floor even in his final season.
Mavs fans won’t remember that Dirk only played 15.6 minutes per game during his last year or shot 35.9 percent from the field. The things that stick out will be the arenas all over the league honoring him and the unbelievable final two games. Nowitzki went out in style, and Dallas Mavericks supporters would not have wanted it any other way.
Dirk appears to be enjoying his retirement too. The Smoking Cuban wishes him the best. Like all fans, we hope to see him back at the American Airlines Center soon.
