The Dallas Mavericks (typically shortened Mass) are a group of North American Basketball Profiling NBA. Owner of the team is the billionaire Mark Cuban. In the season 2010/11, the Mavericks won their first NBA champion.
Dirk Nowitzki wiped the tears from his eyes several times. In the memorable video sequences and emotional speech reports as part of its jersey ceremony, the 43-year-old former basketball superstar overturned his feelings. It was a breathtaking journey. What a special ceremony, Nowitzki said, whose jersey was immortalized with the back number 41 on Wednesday evening (local time) after an unprecedented career under the hall roof of Dallas Mavericks. The number 41 will no longer be awarded at the Club from Texas, the Nowitzki 2011 to NBA Master.
At the side of Mrs. Jessica and his three children Malika, Max and Morris Nowitzki enjoyed the sacred celebration, to which March Cuban was also many teammates of the former championship next to Labors Adam Silver and Move owner Mark Cuban. When the native Würzburg himself was in turn, he pulled a cheat slip out of his pocket and held a meal thank-on speech over about 20 minutes.
Warm words from the commissioner
A very special thanks to his family. Jess, you’re the backbone of our family and keep the shop running. You are the best woman and the best mother. I love you, said Nowitzki, who played exclusively for Mavericks from 1998 to 2019 and be for almost three years Living as a private and family father enjoys. He straightened out of his own offspring: Find your passion and works hard. I love you and am proud of you.
Following the Dallas game against the Golden State Warriors (99:82), the announced ceremony had begun in the American Airlines Center. Nowitzki wanted to be surprised what comes to him. NBA Commissioner Silver said right at the beginning, he has never seen such a ceremony. Dirk, they love you not only here in Dallas, but around the world. 21 years with a team, and you brought this team a championship, Silver explained.
Nowitzki also receives a statue
Today’s Mavericks Trainer Jason Kidd — formerly Nowitzki’s team-mate — spoke representative of that team, which took the first and until the only title of the club history ten and a half years ago. What a journey. You have set standards, what it means to win and work. On behalf of the championship I want to say Thank you : just that you were you. You were always a champion, said Kidd, who moved after completed work as a coach a green Nowitzki jersey.
It was an entertaining celebration in which the Responsible Nowitzki reiterated memories. The 2.13 meter Great June once again told the anecdote, as he was received euphorically in 1998 at the airport in Dallas of hundreds of people. A few years later I have learned that no fans were, but employees of the association sent beyond, Nowitzki said, who would soon receive a statue next to a road named after him and the trio tag soon. Club boss Cuban already revealed them in miniature form — and announced: It will be in front of the arena — and the next arena and the arena afterwards. And she will be great.
