How to watch Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey retirement ceremony

If you can’t be in the AAC, here is how you can watch No. 41 go up into the rafters.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Dallas Mavericks Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Mavericks are sending Dirk Nowitzki’s number 41 to the rafters in recognition of his status as a franchise legend Wednesday night. The ceremony will happen after the game concludes versus the Golden State Warriors. The game is scheduled to tip at 6:30 p.m. and the ceremony is projected to start around 9 p.m. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, owner Mark Cuban and some of Dirk’s former teammates will be on stage for the retirement ceremony.

Nowitzki joins only three other Mavericks to have their numbers retired, Brad Davis (10), Rolando Blackman (22) and Derek Harper (12).

If you aren’t able to be inside the American Airlines Arena for tonight’s ceremony, here is how you can watch:

  • Option 1: The post game ceremony will be aired live on Bally Sports Southwest and the Bally Sports App.
  • Option 2: Per the NBA on Twitter, you can also watch the ceremony on NBA TV.
  • Option 3: Per Bobby Karalla of Mavs Digital, you can watch the ceremony on the Dallas Mavericks YouTube channel (not live — but sometime after the ceremony concludes).

This is sure to be a nostalgic night as Mavericks fan all around the world and the organization stop and reflect — once again — on the amazing, loyal, championship-winning, hall of fame career of Dallas’ most loved sports icon: Dirk Nowitzki.
