Dirk Nowitzki calls it a career after 21 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks. A player known by his peers to have class and easily one of the most deadly threats on the basketball court. He'll always have the memory of teaching the Miami Heat a lesson because no matter what dream team you put together, you still have to win when it counts. 2011 will always be remembered as the time he ripped that NBA Championship right out of LeBron James' hands the first time LeBron paired up with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.
