Losing is no fun for Dirk Nowitzki. But waking up and going to the gym still is. Razzing teammates in the locker room? Still is. Heck, even watching film? Still is.
While the losses have mounted in a season that has been hard to watch at times, but promising at other moments, Nowitzki opened up on Thursday and said that the 8-20 record going into Thursday’s game at Golden State has not dampened his enthusiasm.
Not for this season. Or next season.
“I’m not going to say 100 percent I’ll be back -- but it’s looking like it,” Nowitzki said after the Mavericks had a morning walk-through at the Olympic Club in downtown San Francisco.
