Nowitzki never shared his retirement plans because he didn't want a farewell tour, but he also said he only began serious deliberations on retirement when his lower body gave him issues late in the season. I think mentally I could still do it. I wanted to let a few weeks pass by and then probably just do a press conference like everyone else. Carlisle said neither player will be available Monday night when the Mavericks play Oklahoma City in their preseason home finale. Even if he left this past summer for a different team, he would still be getting his statue in Dallas.

I'll promise you that we'll retire your number, not a tough decision. Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki waves to fans as he leaves the court following a post game ceremony at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Tuesday, April 9, 2019. The whole thing was just amazing and super emotional. It will be about a year to do it, Cuban told me. Dirk Nowitzki will get a statue outside of American Airlines Center…but when? My friends and family are here, this is the perfect timing. I could go on and on about the accomplishments of Nowitzki over the last 18 years in Dallas, but what about after basketball?

If things go right and The Big German stays healthy, he could very well pass the great and be one of the five greatest scorers in the history of basketball. Three things are guaranteed for Nowitzki: The Basketball Hall of Fame, his jersey retired, and most likely a statue outside of American Airlines Center. Considering the late Traylor never turned into an all-star caliber player. Checketts said he made the move as a reward to a franchise player who requested a relocation. Not just any statue, but a bronze, larger-than-life-sized statue of the one-legged fadeaway we have come to expect night in and night out of the American Airlines Center.

I was traveling all over the world the last two months and so now, I really enjoy being at home now and try to make the best of the situation and be with my kids and help them out. The jersey retirement is going to be unbelievable, whenever that takes place.
