Dirk Nowitzki flops during charity soccer game (Video)
Basketball season has officially ended in the NBA, but Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki is still looking for calls. Dirk and a team of All-Star soccer players participated in a charity soccer game recently to help promote youth education and interest in soccer. At one point, the big fella drew a penalty with some fantastic acting.
As you can see, Wolfsburg’s Marcel Schafer went to the ground for an attempted slide tackle and Nowitzki immediately reacted by face-planting like he had been tripped. He got the call, and Schafer looked legitimately angry about it despite the fact that it was a charity event.
Perhaps this will give you a better understanding of Dirk’s opinion on the NBA’s new flopping rules. He has clearly mastered the art — both on the court and the pitch.
