The Dallas Mavericks made a seamless transition from one legend to another as the team traded for Luka Doncic just as Dirk Nowitzki was wrapping up his Hall of Fame career. The duo shared the court for one memorable season that gave Luka a glimpse at how beloved he could be if plays his entire career in Dallas. Nowitzki is the Mavericks GOAT, but after three seasons Doncic is setting a pace to make a run at this throne.
The two share a special bond. Nowitzki helped Doncic add his signature one-legged fadeaway to his arsenal. The Mavs hired Dirk as a special advisor this summer, and he traveled to Slovenia with Mark Cuban, Nico Harrison, Jason Kidd, and Michael Finley to present Luka with his historic contract extension.
Doncic and Nowitzki watched the Dallas Cowboys take on the New York Giants together on Oct. 10. Here is a closer look at the photo from the jumbotron that will melt the hearts of Mavs fans.

Callie Caplan shared the photo of Doncic and Nowitzki sitting side by side at the Cowboys game on Sunday afternoon. See it below.
The two only shared the court for one season, but it is amazing that the duo remains incredibly close. Fans should expect more photos like this moving forward.
It could be a massive year for Nowitzki as owner Mark Cuban has talked about retiring his jersey and unveiling his statue outside the American Airlines Center this season. Fans will not want to miss that game or a second of the action. Luka figures to be in the MVP race as the Mavs attempt to get back into title contention.
Luka Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki were not the only Dallas Mavericks at the Dallas Cowboys game on Oct. 10. Boban Marjanovic posted a photo on his Instagram story from AT&T Stadium. It is always fantastic to see the Mavs supporting the Cowboys, and nothing beats getting a glimpse of Luka and Dirk enjoying the game.
