In an extensive sit-down interview Monday, Grantland’s Zach Lowe chatted with Dirk Nowitzki about his struggles, Shawn Marion’s shooting mechanics, and Mark Cuban’s business decisions. Nowitzki was his usual honest self, especially in this exchange:
Was that the same party where your old friend Steve Nash got a lap dance from Nicki Minaj?
[Laughs] Nah, that was at a different party. So I’ve had Deron’s number since then, and we were texting sometimes. And he knew I wanted him to come here. We talked when it was all in the process. I didn’t fly up on July 1. I wanted him to come. Cubes had to film freaking Shark Tank.
I just watched that for the first time the other night.
I still didn’t. I still refuse to watch it.
It was actually not bad.
I haven’t seen one episode and I probably won’t ever see one.
The whole thing is worth a read.
