The Dallas Mavericks reportedly will hold an event for Dirk Nowitzki on January 5, 2022 at American Airlines Center where they will retire his jersey before hosting the Golden States Warriors.

Nowitzki, who wore No. 41 in Dallas, spent all of his 21 seasons in the NBA with the Mavericks until his last season in 2019.

The German-born forward led the franchise to the 2011 NBA Finals and helped the team win its first-ever NBA title. Nowitzki, who was a 14-time All-Star, averaged 20.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in his career.

In June, the 43-year-old rejoined the organization as a special advisor.

Nowitzki, many believe to be a future Hall of Famer, was recently named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team last month.

The Mavericks acquired Nowitzki during the 1998 NBA draft in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks, and the rest is history.
