The Dallas Mavericks brought back Dirk Nowitzki as a special advisor to owner Mark Cuban this offseason. The franchise’s GOAT had a hand in selecting the team’s new head coach and general manager, and he was part of the traveling party that headed to Slovenia to offer Luka Doncic his historic contract extension. It was a busy summer for Dirk, but a massive season could be ahead.
Cuban has talked about figuring out a game that works to do Nowitzki’s jersey’s retirement and statue unveiling. It will be a can-not-miss night for fans and another opportunity to honor one of the NBA’s all-time greats. Supporters may want to bring some tissues because if it is anything like his final home game, it will be an emotional night.
Nowitzki received another massive honor on Oct. 12 when it was announced that he will be one of five legends that will serve as ambassadors for the NBA’s 75th anniversary season. Here is a closer look at the honor.
