Dirk Nowitzki Announces He's Retiring from NBA After 21 Seasons

"As you guys might expect, this is my last home game", Nowitzki told the crowd, which gave him a standing ovation.

Dirk Nowitzki was mum all season on his future plans but after a rousing performance in the Dallas Mavericks' home finale Tuesday, the star finally announced the decision everyone expected.

Duncan averaged 21.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, three assists and 1.9 blocks in games played against Nowitzki.

Number 41 played a National Basketball Association record of 21 seasons with one team, the Dallas Mavericks. 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 and Dwyane Wade competed for the final time in their legendary career on Wednesday night (10/04).

Nowitzki seriously considered coming back to play one more season as the prospect of competing alongside the Mavericks' talented, young corps that next season will include Kristaps Porzingis, had to be tantalizing for the cagey 40-year-old German. But this one was different because it was his last. The pre-game [tribute] video got me really emotional before the game.

After the game, Cuban sat at an empty locker and nursed an Altstadt beer from nearby Fredricksburg as he recalled the final moments of Nowitzki's playing days.

That's a tremendous way to pay your respects to a man that your team has been going up against for the past 21 seasons. He spent five years covering TCU athletics, which included two BCS bowls, two trips to the college World Series and the move to the Big 12. His 31,540 points are sixth all-time, as are his 7,238 free throws, and he ranks third in games and minutes played, behind only Robert Parish and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
