The Dallas Mavericks have played really well over the past week, and they’ve done it without Dirk Nowitzki. While that is admittedly pretty impressive, it’s also sort of depressing.
Nowitzki, regardless of where you place him on your all-time list, is one of the most interesting players the league has ever had. He makes every single game he participates in ten times more fun. And so, even though his squad is winning without him, it’s still sad to see a Nowitzki-less Mavericks squad take the floor.
If you’re one of the many people that is down about Nowitzki’s absence, here is a video that should cheer you up:
Nowitzki is expected to return at some point over the next month or so.
