The former basketball superstar Dirk Nowitzki has been teased as a teenager. There was no easy time, but you re trying to get through, said the 43-year-old Würzburger at the lecture series People in Europe of the Passauer New Press .
Hangers have driven him a bit for basketball, where he could be equal. Nowitzki was a Spreissel as a teenager according to its own assessment; Classmates would have referred him as a skeletor because his bones had stood out.
Novitzki played from 1998 to his resignation in 2019 in the NBA for Dallas Mavericks. With the Texans, the 2.13 meter athlete in 2011 was master. He lives in Dallas with his wife and the three children. I want to be there for the children, act on them and pull good people big, Novitzki said at the podium discussion.
He would later support his little children when they wanted to take a professional career. At a basketball, Novitzki would put his Veto: American Football is too rough for me.
The former NBA star is an ambassador to the Kinderhilfswerk Unicef, supervised foundations, advises Dallas Mavericks and is investor. Currently, Nowitzki occupies a business course at college.
