Former German national team and NBA superstar Dirk Nowitzki became a global ambassador for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Nowitzki has had an illustrious playing career for Germany and consistently was a star performer at FIBA competitions for the better part of two decades (1999-2015).
Earlier this month, Nowitzki brought the curtain down on his illustrious 21-year NBA playing career – the entirety of which he spent with the Mavericks.
He is one of the greatest players to have ever played in FIBA competitions and was a trail blazer in showing that big players could do more than play in the low post by being an unstoppable threat out on the perimeter.
As a global ambassador, Nowitzki will help promote the World Cup by taking part in activities on the Road to China 2019 as well as being present at the first-ever 32-team edition of FIBA’s flagship competition.”
