#TBT Two of the all-time greats, Dirk & J-Kidd, at the White House with Bill Clinton (kinda). instagram.com/p/voMjRwtkvt/

Mike Trudell

Kobe's said for years how much he likes and respects Dirk. RT @ManWithNoName__: @Mike Trudell How does KB feel about Dirks millstones.

Rashad Mobley

Coach Carlisle, Dirk, Monta and JJ Barea, all felt like their 9-3 record was finally validated because they defeated a team like the Wiz

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Mavs 105, #Wizards 102. Monta scores a season-high 34 pts, Barea 14, Wright 14, Dirk 13, Parsons 11. Mavs are 9-3.

John Schuhmann

Dirk had Beal on him. JJ just kept dribbling.

Dwain Price

Big 3 from Dirk. #Mavs up 102-97 with 1:20 left.

Michael Lee

Dirk Nowitzki was 3-11 before pulling up for the trey. Getting buckets for 16 years & counting...

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk drills a three. @Dallas Mavericks lead 102-97 with 1:20 left. #DALatWAS

Earl K. Sneed

He's still Dirk Nowitzki.

Dwain Price

Dirk returns after getting his left ankle retaped.

Michael Dugat

Dirk back on the court. Go-go Gadget Ankles.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle wasted no time getting Dirk back in the game to cheers from the Wizards' crowd. Down 93-92 with 3:27 remaining. #DALatWAS

Michael Dugat

Dirk back on the bench.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk marches back to the @Dallas Mavericks' bench on cue. #DALatWAS

Michael Lee

Dirk Nowitzki headed back to the bench. No longer limping

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, Dirk is getting his left ankle retaped and should return shortly. #DALatWAS

Trey Kerby

Dirk Nowitzki rolls his ankles so much he might as well be my dad.

Earl K. Sneed

B-Wright ties the game with a baby hook. @Dallas Mavericks are holding up without Dirk. Tied at 92-all with 4:10 left. #DALatWAS

Earl K. Sneed

Otto Porter for three and the Wizards lead 92-90 with 5:00 to play. Still no update on Dirk. #DALatWAS

Tim MacMahon

Dirk's bionic ankles get another test. es.pn/9eGVYD

Michael Dugat

Damn it. Hope Dirk is OK. Need those bionic ankles to prove themselves once more.

Michael Lee

Dirk Nowitzki just hobbled to the locker room.

Dwain Price

Dirk just limped off the court and into the locker room. Didn't look good. Mavs behind 85-8 with 7:56 to go.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is limping to the locker room with head athletic trainer Casey Smith. #DALatWAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 3rd period 76-73. Monta has 28 pts, Dirk 10. Tyson has 5 pts and 15 rebounds.

Earl K. Sneed

9-0 @Dallas Mavericks run to open the 3rd after a three-point bomb by Dirk. #DALatWAS

Earl K. Sneed

Already 10 rebs for Tyson. Mix that with Monta Ellis' 24 pts on 7-of-10 shooting and you have why the Mavs lead, despite Dirk's 3 fouls.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead at the half 54-53. Monta has 24 points, Dirk 7, and Tyson has 2 pts and 10 rebounds.

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson with the follow-dunk. @Dallas Mavericks are holding their own to end the half without Dirk. #DALatWAS

Jorge Castillo

Pierce vs. Nowitzki is a 1998 draft reunion. Wonder what Michael Olowokandi is up to.

Earl K. Sneed

3 fouls on Dirk with 3:02 left in the half. #DALatWAS

Rashad Mobley

Dirk fouled Nene on the top of the head, Nene gave him a little elbow business in return. Then Nene missed a dunk. Advantage Dirk

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons up HIGH to Tyson. @Dallas Mavericks are sure to rank near the top of the league with lob passes. Dirk then swishes a three. 43-41 Wizards.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk just did Nene so dirty on that fadeaway. #DALatWAS

Jorge Castillo

Butler hits open 3 after Mavericks double-team Seraphin with Nowitzki on him.

Jorge Castillo

Gortat said going at Nowitzki defensively would be a key and the Wizards are doing it early. 4 early points for Gortat.

Dirk Nowitzki warms up in D.C. before trying to lead the #Mavs to a 5th straight W. @ The Verizon Center instagram.com/p/vmVX7-Nkuh/

Dwain Price

Dirk on the #Mavs getting him or Paul Pierce in the 1998 draft: “I guess looking at it now, either one would have been a decent pick.’’

Dwain Price

"They decided to take a chance on me, and the gamble paid off.'' -- Dirk Nowitzki said of the 1998 draft

Dwain Price

“For the Mavs it probably would have been an easy pick.'' -- Dirk Nowitzki said of the #Mavs possibly taking Paul Pierce in the 1998 draft

Zach Lowe

Was chatting with Tyson Chandler, Dirk came by to interrupt, and Chandler immediately started mocking Dirk's defense. Just a fun group.

Nikos Varlas

Chris Fleming is the new coach of the German @DBB_Basketball national team. Will be interesting to see him coach @Dirk Nowitzki #Eurobasket2015

Dwain Price

The 1998 NBA Draft do-over?: Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, Vince Carter, Antawn Jamison and Rashard Lewis are your top 5 picks. In that order.

Dwain Price

Remember when #Mavs fans thought they'd get Paul Pierce -- not Dirk Nowitzki -- out of the 1998 draft? Pierce now plays for the #Wizards.

Dwain Price

Dirk Nowitzki on the #Mavs: "We’re a tough team. We've still got a long way to go this season, but we like where we’re headed.''

Dwain Price

"When (defenses) run at him he can put it on the floor, he can pass off the dribble. He does a lot of stuff for us." -- Dirk on Parsons

Dwain Price

"I thought we did a good job. We expected to get hit first." -- #Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki on Monday's 107-80 win over Charlotte
