Nowitzki wants to retire as a Maverick
The greatest European player of all times expressed his desire to close his career in the place where he feels like home and with the team that was crowned NBA champion in 2011.
Dirk Nowitzki spoke to Tim MacMahon of ESPN on his plans for the future in the Dallas Mavericks. “Obviously I still have a year on the contract, and I’d love to fulfill it,”, said the German superstar. “I do have the possibility, if I”m correct, to opt out if I can. That’s not really on the plan, he explained.
“I always said I wanted to play those three years to the end and kind of reevaluate what my body feels like at the end of those three years. But, saying, all that, I’ll just wait, [see] how the season goes,. But in my mind, after we won the championship, it was always clear I would retire a Mav.”
