Dirk Nowitzki Likes To Party
After the Dallas Mavericks were eliminated from the NBA playoffs in the first round (again), even though Dirk Nowitzki dominated the series (again) but had exactly zero help from his teammates (again!), you wouldn’t blame the big German for wanting to blow off some steam during the NBA offseason.
Which is exactly what he did—here’s a shot of Dirk at Miami’s LIV Nightclub, polishing off a bottle of Patron as several future baby mamas look on in delight. And it’s not like he’s trying to hide it either, but having said that it would be a mean feat for a 7-foot Wonder Bread white German to hide himself on the middle of the dancefloor in a South Beach nightclub.
This isn’t the first time Dirk has been caught on camera enjoying a quiet beverage or three during the NBA offseason, as few seasons ago he made headlines when these pictures below (with ex-teammate Steve Nash) popped up on the internet. Nowitzki and Nash are regulars at drunkathlete.com – they each have their very own sub-category there (click here for Dirk’s and here for Steve’s).
(And if a picture of Dirk enjoying himself at a club is the worst thing that happens to him during this offseason, he should consider it a rousing success – check out the headlines he made around the same time last year: “Dirk Nowitzki’s alleged girlfriend arrested on fraud charges”.)
At the end of the day, as long as Dirk is putting up MVP-type numbers and isn’t hurting anyone (we’re looking at you, J.R. Smith) or himself (hi Plaxico!), if this is how he wants to spend his offseason it’s all good with us. Don’t expect the Dallas Mavericks to complain either—their owner Mark Cuban enjoys the good life himself!
