Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki took SLAM’s quiz on his NBA career during the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Fans can see the video and results here.

The Dallas Mavericks began training camp without Dirk Nowitzki for the first time since 1998 on Oct. 1. He hung up the shoes at the end of the 2018-2019 season. The team is back practicing while Dirk is enjoying his retirement.

The Mavericks will have to create a new identity this season. Stars Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis will be key in its development. Dallas cannot reach their goal of making the playoffs without one.

Nowitzki has been talked about plenty during the first few days of training camp. Coach Carlisle had this to say about Dirk on Media Day courtesy of Dwain Price.
