The 29-year-old has no shortage of moments going after people over various social media forms. He’s different from other players, especially Dallas Mavericks All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki. During an interview with the "Dan Patrick Show" on Friday, Nowitzki called out Durant for his inability to stay away from engaging with trolls on a regular basis.“I’m not sure why KD feels the need to respond to some of the stuff,” Nowitzki said, via "The Dan Patrick Show.

Nowitzki has hilarious response to offseason drug test

  Nowitzki has hilarious response to offseason drug test Nothing beats self-deprecating jokes from the 40-year-old Dallas Maverick.Last season, Nowitzki finished averaging 24.7 minutes and just 12 points per game - both career lows since he became a full-time starter in the 1999-2000 season. But he still shot 40.9 percent from beyond the arc this year, which is his fourth-best career average.

Dirk Nowitzki is hopeful he can fulfill the final year of his contract in 2018 - 19 . In terms of team success and individual success, this season has been difficult for Nowitzki .

As the veteran big man points out, he had a very healthy year in 2017-18: appearing in 77 games and remaining productive for the Mavericks. As he enters his age-40 season, there’s no guarantee he’ll continue to be able to stay on the court that often going forward, but if he stays injury-free again, he’ll want to consider all his options in the summer of 2019.

“If next year is going to go sort of the same (in terms of health), then hey, maybe, and we’ll leave the door open and I’m going to play another (season),” Nowitzki said, per Price. “But I want to approach this as if there is no tomorrow and then just hopefully have a great year. I’m going to try to be efficient again as I’ve often tried my entire career. We’ll just go from there, but hopefully it’s going to be a lot more fun than last year.”
