Dallas Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki and his foundation are helping out in the fight against COVID-19. Find out more about it here.

Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki retired at the conclusion of the 2018-2019 season. He played 21 years in Dallas. Dirk scored 31,560 points for the Mavericks. He revolutionized the game of basketball. Nowitzki was a power forward shooting threes and spacing the floor. Now, they all do it.

Dirk produced a plethora of memorable plays on the court, but he did more away from it. He set up the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation. The Mavericks legend has his annual softball game and tennis tournament for charities. He has donated countless hours and dollars to improving Dallas and the rest of the world.

Nowitzki may be retired from basketball, but the charity work has not stopped. He may be needed now more than ever with the novel coronavirus outbreak. Dirk is once again pitching in. He donated meals for those helping fight COVID-19. His foundation also gave $100,000 to the North Texas Food Bank. Fans can read more about Dirk’s efforts against the coronavirus here.
