Dirk Nowitzki: "I'm a World Champ."
Found this on Vimeo: a nice Nike ad starring a chatty Dirk Nowitzki shot in Würzberg, Germany, his hometown. Hence, perhaps, the stroll down Memory Lane ... to the tennis courts, scene of his earliest victories. Ah -- this is the same spotJeff Caplan mentioned this morning
on ESPNDallas, where he also notes thatDirk and the Germans
begin FIBA EuroBasket tourney play next week (August 31,to be precise
, against Israel). Will that be on TV? Why, yes, as a matter of fact:ESPN3 at 1 p.m. Dallas time
