The Dallas Mavericks plan to retire Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey on Wednesday night during their game against the Golden State Warriors. Nowitzki was one of the best players of all time and probably the best Mavs player of all time.

Current Mavs Superstar Luka Doncic took to Twitter to express his gratitude that he had for the former Mavs star and how excited he was for jersey retirement,

“Can’t wait for tonight. So much respect for you @swish41! Thank you for everything. What a player but most importantly what a great person! #41Forever 💯❤️”

Considering that they are both two of the best players ever put on a Mavs jersey, they certainly have a lot of respect for each other and also have a very good relationship. This is going to be a tough game for the Mavs to walk away with a victory in, but they’re going to do everything that they can in order for them to get a win on the big day. Golden State is arguably the best team in all of basketball so they’re going to have to get contributions from everybody out there on the court for them to win this game.

Dirk had one of the most memorable careers in NBA history and even helped the Mavs win an NBA title. What he has done for basketball across the world simply can’t be replicated. Dirk deserves this jersey retirement and it will be a very special night in Dallas.
