The last NBA home game -- the final Bills Toronto Series -- “Cattle horse battle,” even the way Nowitzki ended his NBA career is so touching.
A little sad is that at this moment there is really no more Notianwang, Nowitzki, Golden Rooster Independent, old driver, as his last race ends, the legend about him has finally come to an end.
In addition to Nowitzki being the quintessential star of NBA international players and the soul of the Mavericks (Mavericks), he is also fortunate to witness his journey leading the Mavericks to the first championship in team history.
Nowitzki, currently retired from NBA basketball, achieved NBA Grand Slam glory in 2011, has a "21" year NBA career, and is also an iconic star of the league's loyal "1" team.
Dirk Nowitzki didn't live out his entire 21st year, but when he really started playing NBA basketball, he was lucky enough to see that he was leading the Mavericks to the top of the game.
As an international player in the league to win the NBA Grand Slam, but also with a unique offensive style-“Golden rooster independence” has dominated the league.
In 2011, Nowitzki led the team to the "1" NBA championship, which will be the team's only "1" core player.
Just like mentioning Nowitzki, Golden Rooster Independent and old drivers are often thought of...
Dirk Nowitzki and Cuban, the relationship between players and owners like this, absolutely “Never before”, the future will be no one knows.
It's important to mention Cuban because he has more control over the team and his relationship with Dirk Nowitzki is more about the latter.
The sum of Dirk Nowitzki's “Theoretical gains” and “Actual gains” over his entire career, including a cut in salary to avoid the luxury tax, amounts to nearly $200 million.
This relationship between the owner and the player, which has long been underestimated by the money figure, is by no means as simple as it seems, which is why Cuban is so reluctant about Nowitzki's retirement.
Retiring jerseys, erecting sculptures, providing jobs, Cuban has done much more than he says, and he is worth so many sacrifices from Nowitzki.
It's not so much Nowitzki achieving his own NBA Grand Slam as he "crowned king" with team owner Cuban as he "crowned king."
June 2011 was definitely the most important moment of Nowitzki's entire NBA career, and he led the Mavericks to the top that summer as the team's strongest core.
It was the joyous moment when the Mavericks won the first NBA championship trophy in team history, but from the perspective of the team's championship history, it was difficult! It's really not easy!
From losing the first game of the series, to falling 1-2 behind in the big score, combined with the gap in the team's core strength, the Mavericks were getting closer and closer to missing the NBA championship again after five years.
I remember an NBA Finals game in which Dirk Nowitzki was playing with a high fever and the team relied on his layup to stabilize the game at the last minute and win the game.
Adversity, it can also be said to be desperate, Nowitzki has also suffered a lot of setbacks, really the kind of experience that can completely defeat a player.
There were two particularly difficult times, also before Dirk Nowitzki led the team to the title in 2011.
In the summer of 2006, Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavs out of the west, where the playoffs had gone through six or more games.
The Mavericks won seven games against reigning champion San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the Western Conference Semifinals before edging through to the Conference Finals.
In the NBA Finals, Dirk Nowitzki and his team took the lead 2-0, but didn't want to be left four sets behind.
In the summer of 2007, Nowitzki led the Mavericks to a comeback, from finishing second in the West in the regular season to the playoffs the previous season and finishing first in the league that year to the NBA championship race.
The first-and eighth-round matchup in the west that year was the “Black Eight Miracle,” and the Mavericks were the first team to go out, led by Dirk Nowitzki.
From being reversed 2-0 on the stage of the NBA Finals in 2006 to being the "Black Eight" in the league in 2007, Nowitzki became the league's most watched star at that time.
Not enough, not strong, the doubts about Nowitzki's dominance on the pitch hit like a tsunami, and such a continuous blow may be unique.
After Nowitzki led the team to the championship in 2011, the team's competitiveness was not as good as it was every year, but it was only a matter of team operation, and it was impossible to find a real successor.
However, Nowitzki did not rest on his laurels, on the one hand, he did his best to contribute, and on the other hand, he was looking for a new core for the team, after all, he was 33 years old when he won the championship.
After the team's victory, the championship team left one after another, and players such as Kidd, Terry, Marion and Chandler, including Barria, also left in the middle, and the team was also considered to be rebuilding.
Only Dirk Nowitzki, the city's calling card, the soul of the team, was always there, and his presence was like the Lone Ranger, whose name was later changed to the Lone Ranger.
At the end of his 20th season, Dirk Nowitzki and his team missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, but the team picked rookie Dončić to be the new core in Dirk Nowitzki's 21st season.
The last NBA season, at least the only season in which Nowitzki and Doncic "teamed up", gave hope to the king and the team, and Doncic was the next cowboy.
Dirk Nowitzki's average in his last few years in the NBA wasn't bad, especially offensively, which shows how much he sacrificed for the team.
At the moment when Nowitzki announced that his "chariot" was stalled, it also meant that the "Golden Rooster Independence" would also be recruited, and the future Lone Ranger team would no longer have Nowitzki.
Dirk Nowitzki has passed the baton to the next cowboy, but his legacy in the league and the Mavericks is not going away.
In 2006's "bitterness", to 2011's "bitter and happy", and then to 2019's "successful retirement", the time seems to go back to 1998, when he just entered the league.
Dirk Nowitzki spent the first 12 years of his career climbing to the top, and then the next nine as his career wore on.
There have been some of the best moments, and there have been many experiences that have made people grow, and Nowitzki's NBA career is worth savoring.
Suddenly feel very lucky to“Know” you in 2011, Dallas Cowboys, Goodbye!
