Dirk Nowitzki's Legendary Arrivals To The Arena With Food Plates On Game Days

Dirk Nowitzki is one of the greatest NBA players of all time. Dirk is a beloved superstar among all NBA fans, but especially in Dallas. Dirk played in Dallas for his entire career and took his franchise to their one and only NBA championship in 2011. Dirk will forever be a legend in the league.

Late in his career, Dirk started a strange trend of showing up to games with a tin-foil plate with his pre-game meal to the arena. The trend caught the eye of NBA fans, and they realized that Dirk was bringing over leftovers from his house that his wife gave him, and would stick to eating that food in order to maintain his diet.

Nowitzki in his later age understood the importance of his diet, and his wife would help prepare his food so that he could continue eating healthy and stay in game shape during the course of the NBA season. Dirk clearly understood what kind of dedication it took to stay in great shape throughout his career.

Dirk's final season was a passing of the torch moment in Dallas. He got to share the court with Luka Doncic, the next European star who would carry the mantle for the Mavericks in the years to come. Nowitzki got to impart a lot of knowledge to Luka, as he was preparing to become the next superstar for the Mavericks.

Nowitzki had his jersey retired by the Dallas Mavericks last night. It was a historic occasion where the entire franchise and the fanbase came together to pay tribute to the biggest legend in the history of their team. He thanked Mark Cuban and the Mavericks fanbase during his speech, showing a lot of respect to them.

Dirk will go down a legend in Dallas and be remembered as the best to ever wear the jersey for the franchise.
