Fox Sports Southwest had injured All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki mic’d on the bench for a good chunk of Tuesday night’s Raptors/Mavericks game, and, as expected with The German, hilarity ensued.

A few highlights included Dirk discussing German heavy metal rock bands; tentatively bringing the viewer back from commercial break; making fun of Brian Cardinal’s age; and much, much more.

Look, I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll keep saying it: Dirk is the funniest guy in the league, no doubt.
