Dirk Nowitzki and his probable retirement

Dirk has not overtly said it but this is probably his last game. He was happy with himself and said:

“That was obviously awesome. The first one I was a little deep, and I let it ride, all in, last time on this stage, might as well try it and then it went in. Then the second one was kind of the same, stepped back a little bit more.”

“It was a great feeling to be out there on this stage one more time and enjoy it and talk to trash to my teammates and the other guys. It was a fun weekend. I tried to enjoy myself as much as I could.”
