Recently, in one of the most shocking moments in pro wrestling history, WWE superstar Seth Rollins turned on the very, very popular faction The Shield and became a heel. Now take that shocker and multiply it by 10 — that’s how shocking it would be if Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki stabbed the city of Dallas in the back.
“Mark [Cuban] and I are probably going to get together really quick, and hopefully find a good deal for both parties,” said Nowitzki, who spoke with reporters after hanging out yesterday with a bunch of little youngsters at the T. Boone Pickens YMCA in Dallas.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Nowitzki are cool like that. And Nowitzki, in perhaps his most sentimental moment as a Maverick, spoke about what it means to him to bleed blue:
“I’ve been a part of this organization for almost two decades now. It’s been a crazy, fun ride.”
So, yes, Houston Rockets, about going after Nowitzki — hold that thought. It’s not happening. Hypothetically speaking though, if Nowitzki actually did sign with another NBA franchise, Mavericks fans would require months to even process what just happened, before Nowitzki would become the most hated man in Dallas sports history.
But Nowitzki, unlike Rollins, knows the meaning of loyalty. If anything, Nowitzki, being the character he is, might just have fun with this whole free agency situation and spoof Miami Heat forward LeBron James‘ ‘The Decision.’ But no, Nowitzki will never cross over to the dark side.
