NBA Twitter reacts to Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey retirement

Jan. 5, 2022 was all about the Tall Baller from the G.

Dirk Nowitzki got his #41 jersey retired on Wednesday night as the Dallas Mavericks celebrated his illustrious 21-year career in a Mavericks uniform.

Dirk is the greatest Maverick of all-time and that’s not up for debate. Nowitzki led the Mavericks to their only championship in 2011 while hoisting the Finals MVP trophy along with winning the 2006-07 MVP, making 14 All-Star appearances, 12 All-NBA teams. and being the 6th all-time leading scorer in league history.

Along with the accolades, Dirk is one of the most beloved players in league history. It’s difficult to find a player, coach, or fan anywhere in the world that doesn’t appreciate nor love what Dirk has done for the game of basketball worldwide.

In fitting fashion prior to the ceremony, the Mavericks knocked off the Golden State Warriors in a low-scoring, defensive battle, 99-82.

In honor of his night, we took to Twitter to see all the support and celebrating of Dirk across the league throughout the day. Check out NBA Twitter’s reaction to Dirk’s jersey retirement below.
