Dirk Nowitzki missing a penalty kick so, so terribly is quintessential Dirk

This is amazing.

Dirk Nowitzki played handball growing up before switching solely to basketball. In Germany, soccer is huge, but it was never his sport. Being seven feet tall probably didn’t help there, and these days, all Dirk is really known for when trying to kick the ball around the pitch is flopping.

But now we have something else: TERRIBLE PENALTY KICKS.

Thank you to The Ringer’s essential Jason Gallagher for bringing this to our attention. Dirk forever.

There’s no way this moment couldn’t have been made into the Running Man, though.
