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 spot Jeff Caplan mentioned this morning on ESPNDallas, where he also notes that Dirk 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 .
