Dallas Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki needed some assistance from former teammate Deron Williams on March 15. Find out the latest here.

Dallas Mavericks fans are looking for something to fill their basketball void while the NBA is on suspension. They cannot throw themselves into other sports because they too are on hiatus. Some Mavericks players have turned to video games to pass the time.

There is no telling when basketball will return either. The suspension looks like it could last into June, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. That would cause some shuffling of the NBA calendar going forward. Remember, nothing is official at this time. There are still many things to sort out before basketball returns.

Everybody is looking for a pick me up right now. Leave it to Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavs GOAT came through so many times when he was needed, and he did so again on Sunday.

Deron Williams sent out the following tweet on March 15.

Fans can see the Instagram here. It features a video of Dirk and the mini-van. It certainly provided a needed laugh.

Nowitzki and D-Will were teammates for a season and a half in Dallas. The Mavericks signed Williams as a free agent in the summer of 2015. He was 31 years old and a three-time All-Star at that point. D-Will started 103 of his 105 games in Dallas. He averaged 13.7 points and 6.2 assists with the Mavs.

Williams was waived in February of 2017. He went to Cleveland to chase a ring with LeBron James and the Cavaliers. They lost in the finals to Golden State that year. D-Will did not win a championship in his 12-year career.

He provided some help for Dirk on Sunday, though. Give D-Will one more assist on his ledger.
