VIDEO: Dirk Nowitzki Throws Out First Pitch in Nike Air Force 1s
Dirk Nowitzki is riding high after an MVP caliber season, and personal domination of the NBA Playoffs. The seven-foot German native is as smooth as a two guard on the court with one of the prettiest fadeaways in NBA history. On the diamond, though, it’s a whole different story. Dirk kept it extremely casual when throwing out the inaugural pitch at a recent Rangers game in a personalized Rangers jersey, Rangers fitted, gym shorts, and Nike Air Force 1s. You can’t fault the big fella in terms of matching up his colors—literally everything from head to toe was navy blue, white and red, right down to his NBA socks. At his height, Dirk may be an imposing figure on the mound, but his baseball prowess left much to be desired. While he fared slightly better than John Wall, Dirk certainly isn’t the second coming of Randy Johnson, but he’s pretty good at this basketball thing, so I think he’ll be just fine. Take a gander at his first pitch effort below.
