DALLAS – Dirk Nowitzki is a popular guy.
A year ago, DallasBasketball.com broke the story detailing Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s desire to have the retired icon Nowitzki join the organization in a capacity as a minority owner.
In an interview with our Dalton Trigg on the subject, Cuban said, “Absolutely. I’ll have the convo with Dirk in the future. There is a lot of things involved to make it all work. But it would be awesome.”
Dirk with an ownership stake in this team – the only team he’s ever known – is a nice fit. No single person is more synonymous with the Mavericks than Nowitzki, so such a business partnership would be a coup for Cuban and the Mavs, and would befit their personal friendship as well.
But Dirk has other friends. Like Steve Nash. Who is now involved in another team.
