Dirk Nowitzki Says He Invented The "White Version" Of The Dream Shake

Important NBA Voices Begin Agitating For A Shorter Season

The book on NBA Commissioner Adam Silver reads that he is an innovator, more open to radical change than expected from somebody whose most salient job responsibility is protecting a multibillion dollar industry. And now that Silver has kicked Donald Sterling to the curb and signed a new media rights deal, he's… » 10/16/14 1:28am 10/16/14 1:28am

Dirk Nowitzki Gives Conan O'Brien A "Texas Citizenship Test"

Conan O'Brien is taping his show in Dallas this week, and last night he invited Dirk Nowitzki onto the show to test just how much of a Texan Conan really is. It's a pretty funny bit, but mostly it's just a reminder that Dirk is awesome and that the NBA will be a much worse and humorless place when "The Berlin Tall"… » 4/01/14 10:57am 4/01/14 10:57am

Dirk Nowitzki Sings Terribly In Very Strange Music Video

I really don't know what the hell is going on here. I have no idea who is responsible for making this video, and its intended purpose eludes me. Enjoy, I guess. » 7/19/13 11:52am 7/19/13 11:52am

Dirk Nowitzki "Flops" In A Charity Soccer Match

Dirk pretty much fessed up to "selling" contact in NBA games to draw a whistle, but said the league needs to get rid of "the really obvious ones." Like, say, toppling over at a charity soccer match in Germany yesterday. » 6/24/13 10:47am 6/24/13 10:47am

Goodbye, Dirk Nowitzki's Out-Of-Control Beard

The damn thing lasted almost three months. The Mavericks swore to grow beards, bushy, unwieldy beards, until they got to .500. It wasn't easy, but with last night's win, the Mavs have crawled all the way back to respectability. As soon as the buzzer sounded, Dirk Nowitzki, the mountain manliest of Dallas's mountain… » 4/15/13 8:51am 4/15/13 8:51am

Goddamnit, Matt Barnes. Last night's game between your Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks was really fun to watch!

The Evolution Of Dirk Nowitzki's Beard

Sometime in late January, Dirk Nowitzki shaved. That would be the last time, at least until the disappointing Mavericks clawed their way back to a .500 record. Well, after last night's overtime victory against the Clippers, featuring a season-high 33 from Dirk, Dallas is 35-36. The beard? It is out of control. » 3/27/13 10:03am 3/27/13 10:03am

The Blazers And Mavericks Scored 11 Points In A Thrilling Final 30…

The Trail Blazers seem to have some magic about them this season.

Dirk Nowitzki Tries To Crash A Video Review, Gets Stonewalled By…

I was not previously aware of the fact that there are NBA security guards whose job it is to prevent players from getting too close to the referees during video reviews. But as the video above shows, such security guards do indeed exist, and one of them got into a hilarious tête-à-tête with Dirk Nowitzki at the end… » 1/14/13 4:55pm 1/14/13 4:55pm

Of Course Dirk Nowitzki Had A Traditional Kenyan Wedding

A couple of weeks ago, Newstime Africa ran a story reporting that Dirk Nowitzki had married his longtime girlfriend in Kenya, in a ceremony with traditional Kikuyu touches. The Mavs flat denied it, oddly enough. Well, here come the photos, and unless Dirk likes playing Ngurario dress-up, it looks like he indeed took… » 7/30/12 5:30pm 7/30/12 5:30pm

Dirk Nowitzki Is The Teutonic Tambourine Man

His season over, last night Dirk was in Grand Prairie, Texas, to catch indie-folk band the Avett Brothers. Naturally, he was invited on stage to join in on "I Killed Sally's Lover." Dirk was handed a tambourine, and proceeded to rock right the fuck out. (Fun starts at the two-minute mark. [Cosby Sweaters] » 6/04/12 1:55pm 6/04/12 1:55pm

Dirk Nowitzki High-Fived Roddy Beaubois So Hard He Nearly Knocked His…

Dirk was a little fired up after his running hook shot drew a foul and put the Mavs up 16 during the fourth quarter of last night's win in Denver. His enthusiasm was a bit more than teammate Roddy Beaubois was ready to handle. » 3/20/12 9:40am 3/20/12 9:40am

Did Dirk Nowitzki Shout "Fucking Faggot" After Hitting The Shot That…

We're not entirely sure what it is Dirk Nowitzki shouts after hitting the dagger to ensure tonight's 97-94 double-OT win over Portland, but it sure looks like the same thing that earned Kobe Bryant an unprecedented $100,000 fine last season. » 2/12/12 12:28am 2/12/12 12:28am

Somebody Let Dirk Nowitzki Have The Microphone Again, And The Results…

Dirk Nowitzki's occasional stints as a TV analyst have led to catchphrases including "Take Dat With You," which became an unofficial rallying cry for last year's Mavericks. Dirk's grunts and ejaculations are funny, for sure—even if sometimes in a "does my breath smell funny" or "does my car sound funny" way. » 1/26/12 10:45am 1/26/12 10:45am
