Dirk Nowitzki: But listen, I see, obviously, reports on Twitter all the time, guys hitting me up ‘I feel bad for Dirk.’ Don’t feel bad for me. I love what I do and we get paid a lot of money to do what we do. I love competing and I love the sport still. I’ve been lucky to do it for a long, long time. Came here, whatever, 18 years ago not knowing what to expect and it’s been an incredible journey. I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for me. I’m going to compete like I always have and then one day it’ll be all over.”
On his rather interesting haircut: Nowitzki: “So it was getting to the point, right around the New Year, we said together the family – we did the whole New Year’s Resolution thing. And I said one of the things I wanted to try was a new haircut. I saw it in a magazine, and this model had a cool cut. So I said to my guy ‘can you pull this one off?’ And he’s like ‘yeah, I think it will look good.’ Man when he was done after 45 minutes … uh … it was … interesting. I tried to pull it off for a few weeks there. But it was so long in the front and during the game I kept pulling the hair to the side like I was some model. So I decided to just go short. You should’ve seen that day. I walked in for shootaround that morning and I think Parsons, unfortunately, was the first guy to see me through the doors and it was on from there. Whether it was Ellen DeGeneres, there were all sorts of things thrown around, but all in good fun.”

Tim MacMahon: Dirk Nowitzki said that he will opt out of the final season of his contract, a change from his previous statements. “We had one more year on the contract, but I think this is the right thing to do,” Nowitzki said on 1310 The Ticket in Dallas. “We’re going to sit with Mark and Donnie obviously over the next few weeks and figure out how to improve this franchise again. Ever since after the championship, we’ve been basically a first-round exit. We’ve been a seven, eight seed. We’ve only won a few playoff games, and obviously the goal was to compete at the highest level in my last couple of years, so there is some moving to do, some thinking, some putting our heads together the next few weeks heading into free agency, heading into the draft. So this is just one move that hopefully starts a chain reaction for us to get better again, to compete really at a high level. We’ll see how it goes.”
