Dirk Nowitzki wants to stay in basketball after the end of his career.
“I won’t be a car salesman,” joked the superstar of NBA club Dallas Mavericks in an interview with Der Spiegel: “Sport has always been my great love. “I’d like to return some of that.”
Nowitzki stressed again that he will probably not stop this year: “If the season continues as before, and the body plays along to some extent, I wouldn’t know why I shouldn’t continue. I am confident that I will play next season,” said the Würzburg native.
When I come back next season, it will probably be my last year,” said Nowitzki (39), but on the other hand said: “If things go the same way next year – who knows, maybe I’ll come back at 41”.
Nowitzki wants to meet with his family this summer: “Our eldest will start school next year and I’ve already missed so much,” said the 2011 NBA champion.
With a view to saying goodbye to the basketball stage, he is especially looking forward to the “freedom to do what I want. “I haven’t been allowed to ski for 20 years.”
