Dirk Nowitzki: 'This is My Last Home Game'

Dirk Nowitzki right celebrates his career with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban

Dwyane Wade was honoured after his final home game for Miami Heat. But all season long, Dirk Nowitzki wouldn't confirm it.

Nowitzki added that he was "super, super emotional" as he addressed the crowd, according to USA Today.

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

Charles Barkley was in attendance and also paid tribute to Nowitzki, calling him "the nicest man ever".

The 14-time All-Star gave the home folks the thrill of passing Wilt Chamberlain to regain sixth on the career scoring list last month.

The reaction was so visceral that Spalding, the polite and affable rookie who happened to begin the season with the Dallas Mavericks, brought it up inside the postgame locker room as he changed from Suns uniform to street clothes for the final time in the 2018-19 season. I know what you're going through, saying goodbye to a career you love is never easy, I've been there. I'm truly trying to see others grow.

After returning from his ankle injury, Nowitzki notched career lows this season in most major categories.

"This is my new home", Nowitzki said.

That tandem of sweet-shooting seven-footers from Europe won't be happening, apparently, although Porzingis will presumably be more than able to content himself with playing alongside another star from that continent, Luke Doncic, who is a front-runner for National Basketball Association rookie of the year honors.

In addition the 51-point point effort, Crawford also chipped in five assists and five rebounds with a steal and a block to boot.

A sellout crowd followed owner Mark Cuban's order of filling the arena early, and cheered from the first possible moment for the player who guided the Mavericks to their only championship eight years ago.
