Dirk Nowitzki Signing Autographs (Video)

Dirk Nowitzki is one of the best foreign born NBA players of all-time. The native of Germany is a career 22.4 points a game scorer, while averaging 8.0 rebounds a contest. The 12-time All-Star led the Mavericks to the 2011 NBA championship. Amid spending his entire 17-year career in Dallas, he is easily the best player in franchise history.

Currently, the Mavericks are 26-11, which is good for fourth place in the Western Conference.

Earlier this season, when the Mavs were stopping though Detroit, iFolloSports.com Michigan correspondent Lance Martinez captured the above original video of Nowitzki signing autographs at The Palace of Auburn Hills. In the contest that followed, Nowitzki scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, in a Mavericks victory.
