Will Dallas Mavericks living legend Dirk Nowitzki hang it up after this season? 

Nowitzki spoke about how he hopes to have the strength to go at least one more season before retiring a few weeks back. 

“I think I’m going to make that decision later on, but I think the future’s bright,” Nowitzki told ESPN. “I’d love to be there for the young guys one more year, but I think it depends on how the body feels. I’ve had some issues, obviously, this year. I had some knee swelling here the last few weeks, actually before the All-Star break, so it’s not all great. But like I said, I am feeling better. I am feeling a little stronger.”

When asked how Kevin Durant feels about Dirk’s potential retirement, he had this to say: 

“Has Dirk retired yet? I feel like everybody’s pushing him out the league,” Durant said. “So, I’ll wait til he makes his official announcement to really comment on that.”

It’s Dirk’s decision if he wants to go another year. 

Sure his best days are behind him, but he’s certainly earned the right to go out on his own terms.
