Mavs’ Nowitzki announces he’ll play next season

During a press conference with reporters where he addressed his recent ankle surgery, Dallas Mavericks future Hall-of-Famer Dirk Nowitzki announced he’ll return next season.

It will be Nowitzki’s 21st season with the Mavericks, setting an NBA record for most years with a single team.

In 77 games this season, Nowitzki averaged 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists, shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range.

“Hopefully I can play some decent basketball next season. If not, it’s time to go,” said Nowitzki.

Nowitzki said he’s not opposed to coming off the bench next year if it will benefit the team. He will turn 40-years-old on June 19th.

  1. Dirk…..Really? Hang em up so we don’t only remember the shell of the player you “used” to be by hanging on far too long. It can’t be the money…right?
