Happy Birthday Dirk Nowitzki: German Wunderkind Leads NBA’s ‘Very Funny Department’ NBA Life

Dirk Nowitzki is a Dallas Mavericks’ legend, who will go down in the annals of the sport as one of the greatest power forwards and European imports of all time. Nowitzki joined the exclusive 30,000-point club this past season. He a is a sure-fire first ballot Hall of Famer and an NBA champion. But as great as Dirk is on the court, he is just as, if not more, entertaining off it be it with his goofy hairstyles, his even goofier deadpan sense of humour or even his (semi-serious ?) promise to make the Dallas Mavericks great again. Here’s a look at Dirk’s funniest moments as he turns 39 today.
