Emotional Win with Dirk Nowitzki caught on Video
Although Miami Heat star Chris Bosh cried because he MISSED OUT on a chance to win a championship, it was a different story for Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, as emotions ran TOO HIGH for the star, to the point where he couldn’t make it through the last three seconds of Game 6. He knows he’s EARN THIS CHAMPIONSHP, and finally can get the monkey off his back.
In most cases, you’d expect a player to celebrate a moment like this one by soaking in the moment on the court. However, an emotional Nowitzki declined a public celebration and ran off the court to gather his thoughts in the locker room with still 1.2 seconds showing on the clock. It was a very touching moment that the ABC TV crew was lucky enough to capture in the video above.
After the game, Dirk explained his walk off the court in an interview with ESPN’s Hannah Storm:
“I had to get a moment. I was crying a bit. I was a little emotional. … I actually didn’t want to come out for the trophy, but the guys talked me into it.”
