Dirk Nowitzki on his future:: “My goal is to fulfil my contract. In the summer I signed for two more years. But I also have to check on my health. No one knows where I will go later, but I think that I’ll always have a home here in Dallas. I have been here for 20 years now, my wife for ten. If I want to, I would get a job at the Mavericks so I think we might stay here after the end of my career.”
Storyline: Dirk Nowitzki Retirement?
Dirk Nowitzki on preseason: “It was not a good pre-season, that’s for sure. But we had a lot of new people that we had to integrate. Plus, at the beginning I decided to give myself a slow start and didn’t play at all in the first three games. We have to improve as a starting five. But I believe we have potential when we start playing more together but first of all we have to develop better shooting, we’ve had big problems with that . Our defence is way better, thanks to the addition of Andrew Bogut and we already have Wesley Matthews.”
Dirk Nowitzki on a possible career as Head Coach: “Becoming a Head Coach was never my goal. A Head Coach not only needs to have basketball knowledge, he has to evaluate characters, has to mix them, to motivate – even yell at someone once in a while. That is not part of my personality. I am not the person to stand somewhere and hold a 20 minute speech. I think player development is more my ideal role; I sure learned a lot from Holger Geschwindner about that in the last 20 years. But Head Coach? No way.”
