Comeback! Dirk Nowitzki Signs Contract To Rejoin Mavs For 2021 Playoffs


Dirk Nowitzki has had one of the best NBA careers in league history. He is an NBA champion, won the league’s MVP and the Finals MVP award. He was part of 14 All-Star teams and 12 All-NBA Teams and is one of the few members of the 50-40-90 club. Nowitzki is ranked 6th in all-time-scoring, 7th in all-time defensive-rebounds and 2nd in all-time NBA Finals free throw percentage.

And, most importantly, Dirk Nowitzki holds the league record for most seasons played with one team. To the surprise of all, this record will now be extended, as Dirk Nowitzki announced a comeback.

In a press conference with only Dirk and Mark Cuban present, due to the coronavirus, Nowitzki revealed that he signed a contract for the remainder of the season, including the playoffs. The contract is worth the veterans minimum.


“I was staying in shape all year for this, and secretly trained with the team during ‘team only’ practices. I told Mark before I retired, that I may come back for a playoff run. My knees are feeling better than in the last years, and I’m looking forward to helping the team in the postseason.”


With Kristaps Porzingis healthy, Dirk will likely be his backup, but the veteran presence of the 14-time All-Star, will be a key addition to the Mavs’ locker room. Dirk will give all that he has left in his tank, for one final run at another title. By the way, none of this is true (obviously!), and in case you haven’t checked the calendar, let me tell you that it’s April 1st.
