Grateful Mavs fan sends Dirk Nowitzki heartfelt card, money for 'taking discounts'

Grateful Mavs fan sends Dirk Nowitzki heartfelt card, money for 'taking discounts'”

One Dallas Mavericks fan sent Dirk Nowitzki a card and $20 as appreciation for the star taking salary discounts throughout his career.

At their annual open practice earlier today, a fan did his/her part to compensate for Nowitzki's efforts to bring big-ticket players to Dallas to chase a title.

Nowitzki posted the card on Twitter extending gratitude to the anonymous fan.

The left side of the card reads: "Thank you for 20 seasons of pure Greatness". It's been a honor to watch you play from a kid to an adult.

There are likely many more gestures like this to come Nowitzki's way in what could be his final season. I don't care what the critics say, your the greatest to ever play! "Thanks Dirk! I think I speak on behalf of Dallas that we truly appreciate everything you done for the city".

Nowitzki, 39, is due $5 million this season. His actions have been a rarity in today's National Basketball Association where it would be expected for a player of his caliber to voice frustration or trade demand due to the Mavericks' struggles in the last several seasons since winning an National Basketball Association title.
