Dirk Nowitzki the Commentator May be Better Than Dirk Nowitzki the Player

Mavs forward/center Dirk Nowitzki sat out Wednesday’s game against the T-Wolves due to a lingering knee injury, but that didn’t stop Disco Dirk from getting on the highlight reel, thanks to this tremendous impromptu color commentary of a Jason Terry/Brandan Wright alley-oop.

Nowitzki embraced his short-lived role as color man with such verve and elan that if you closed your eyes you thought you were listening to Gus Johnson, only with a German accent and a better jump shot.  Dirk can definitely use this as an audition tape should he ever seek a post-basketball career as a basketball announcer.

OH MY GOD!!!!

OOOOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!

SHUT IT DOOOOOWWWWNNNN!!!!!

LET’S GO HOOOOOOME!!!!!

With this performance Dirk Nowitzki officially passed bratwurst as the greatest thing to ever come from Germany.
