Dallas Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki produced plenty of highlights. Here is a video of the current members of the team reacting to his best plays.

The Dallas Mavericks are synonymous with Dirk Nowitzki. The future Hall of Famer retired at the end of the 2018-2019 season after 21 years in a Mavericks uniform. Dirk brought the Mavericks a championship in 2011. The legend also had a ton of personal accomplishments that place him among the all-time greats.

Nowitzki stayed in Dallas for his entire career. There was no ring chasing or teaming up with another superstar. That not only endeared him to the fan base but made him someone other star players look up to. It is the reason a Dirk statue will stand outside the American Airlines Center too.

He also had the Mavs in the playoffs nearly every season. They missed it one time from 2001 to 2016. That was in 2013 when Dirk was limited to 53 games because of a knee injury.

Some fans may not remember young Dirk. He had the jump shot plus the athletic ability to put you on a poster. The current Mavericks did not know. Here is a video of their players enjoying some vintage Dirk Nowitzki highlights.

The current Mavs likely produced some laughs for fans. Luka Doncic was giving the legend the business in the video. The two have a playful relationship. It also gave younger supporters a look at a version of Dirk they may have never seen.

Nowitzki took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the video.

Hopefully, Dirk is enjoying his retirement. Admittedly, this season has been different without him. He was a fixture of Mavericks basketball for over two decades. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis have Dallas back in contention, though.
