DALLAS — After 21 years with the Dallas Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki said "it's time to move on." But if it makes you feel better, as it did us, he added, "It's not a goodbye."
Following his final interview Thursday as a Mavericks player, Nowitzki took a selfie video, which was posted to the team's official Twitter page, to personally say goodbye to his fans.
"I had a blast representing this city and this franchise for 21 years," he said. "It's time to move on, but as you guys know, I'll be around. I'm a Texan for life."
