Be Like Dirk

And learn David Hasselhoff's "Looking For Freedom," the Knight Rider's 1989 "hit" credited with, oh, tearing down the Berlin Wall. (Well, that's what Hasselhoff says.) Now, it's being touted as the reason Nowitzki's such a clutch free-throw shooter: The Mav says here that when he's at the charity stripe, "I try to sing sometimes to kind of take the pressure off." Here's the video, so go get your Hasselhoff on tonight when the Mavericks and Spurs play Game 5 of the Western Conference semis in San Antonio. Me, I like to sing Nena's "99 Luftballons" whenever possible, so I get where he's coming from. --Robert Wilonsky
