An emotional Dirk tearfully says bye to German fans after last game

New, comments

This is surely Dirk's last game with the German National Team and playing in his home country.

It had been four years since Dirk Nowitzki suited up for Germany and his return to his national team was disappointing, with the team winning just one of their five games. (We did a couple wonderful Dirk highlights out of it.)

After falling to a Pau Gasol-led Spanish team, Dirk gave an interview in German before waving, bowing and thanking the thousands of his German fans at the stadium in Berlin.

Danke Dirk, danke.
