Dirk Nowitzki Overcome With Emotion During Final NBA Game

To add to the importance of the game it will be the final in the National Basketball Association career of the Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki, who officially announced his retirement on Tuesday. The 7-footer struggled at times during the 2018-19 campaign, but Nowitzki went off for a season-high 30 points in the Mavs' 120-109 victory over Phoenix.

Nowitzki finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds in the finale of his storied 21-season career - all with the Mavericks.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 34 points and 16 rebounds and the Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks 105-94 Wednesday night in Nowitzki's final game. Cuban's entire tenure as the team's owner featured Nowitzki as a pivotal part, and to finally part ways after such a long and meaningful ride together will definitely bring a tear to anyone's eye.

Dirk Nowitzki #41 of the Dallas Mavericks is greeted by Gregg Popvich head coach of the San Antonio Spurs before the start of the game at AT&T Center on April 10, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. M-V-P! Nowitzki won the league's regular-season MVP award in 2007 and earned NBA Finals MVP in 2011, when he delivered Dallas its lone championship.

Around the same time that the Spurs showed their knack for scouting and introducing global players to the NBA, Nowitzki forged a path for European basketball players to achieve their hoop dreams and compete at the highest level.

"I know a little bit".

Dwyane Wade was honoured after his final home game for Miami Heat.

And while his in-game performance was certainly something worth remembering, it will likely be his pre-game emotion that provides the lasting image from Dirk's final game.

Even with the focus up through the last game, White thinks there is more the team needs to work on. "I think a lot of people will understand the history and his impact on the game", White said. Nowitzki reached that spot last season, but LeBron James passed him.

After Nowitzki drained the effort, Popovich could be seen standing and applauding.

Not only did Crawford become the oldest player to put up 50-plus, but he also became the first player to post 50-point games for four different franchises, per ESPN Stats & Information.
