Dirk Nowitzki Announces He Will Retire After 2018-19 Season

Dirk Nowitzki Announces He Will Retire After 2018-19 Season”

As much as the Mavericks have tried to honour the 40-year-old's request, owner Mark Cuban makes no secret of the team's desire to recognize the big German in the final home game of his record 21st season with the same franchise.

If Nowitzki doesn't return, the 20-year-old Doncic still will be able to say he spent a season with the player who changed the game as the first 7-footer who was a legitimate threat from the 3-point line. "I think we've made a big deal about this being his previous year, and I think he's coming back".

"Wow. I'm a little overwhelmed, as you would think". "I put you guys on a hell of a ride, with a lot of ups and downs, and you guys always stuck with me and supported me so I appreciate it".

U.S. hails progress in China talks amid push to close the deal
"There is indeed a lot of progress being made", said Myron Brilliant, executive vice president of the US Chamber of Commerce. But the U.S. has indicated it will keep them in place until it's certain China will comply.

Nowitzki will retire after the Mavericks' game in San Antonio on Wednesday, while Wade will finish his playing career in Brooklyn on the same night.

Nowitzki went out firing, hoisting 31 shots - the most since he was in prime and gearing up to lead the only championship in franchise history early in the 2010-11 season.

"I promise you that you have a job for life, I don't care what you do", Cuban continued, to roars from fans.

President says migrants straining US immigration system
The governor says the president's rhetoric disregards the Constitution, the justice system "and what it means to be an American". The President visited the Del Rio Sector to have a first- hand inspection of the wall.

Nowitzki has set an National Basketball Association record with his 21st season with the Mavs, having been tied at 20 seasons with the same club with former Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant. Nowitzki reached that spot last season, but James passed him.

Nowitzki could thus have had some reason to feel like he still has something left, and teammate Kristaps Porzingis, who was traded from the Knicks in February but has been out the entire season while recovering from knee surgery, reportedly lobbied for his childhood idol to return nest season so they could play together. "But physically, the foot is just not quite there".
