Dirk Nowitzki has no concrete future plans even three years after the end of his big NBA career. “I’m still in an intermediate phase, where I try something a bit,” said the German basketballidol on Tuesday in Cologne: “I’m not ready to commit myself for one thing.”
“At some point something will happen,” said the 43-year-old. But there is a lot of fun, “to spend time with the children, which are also in big NBAs”. The Würzburger has a daughter and two sons with his wife Jessica.
Novitzki, in his role as ambassador for the EM 2022 (1 to 18 September) in the cathedral town, will intensify at least the work in his former club in Dallas in the future. “It’s obvious that I’m involved in the Mavericks,” said the NBA Champion of 2011: “At the moment I am in the advisory role.”
In addition, Nowitzki Chairman is the game commission at the World Association Fiba. Most recently, the Würzburger at the headquarters in Mies / Switzerland was a guest and took part for the first time as a member of a board meeting. “We are asked, can bring input,” said Nowitzki’s tasks. “It’s fun, and I’m learning a lot.” It was “13, 14 old players” involved.
Nowitzki has always stressed that he can not imagine a coaching career. Apart from that, the former star player did not exclude anything.
