When you lead your team to a surprising sweep over a two-time defending champion while averaging 25 points and 9 rebounds a game and shooting better than 50 percent from the field and 75 percent from three, you get to do whatever you want. Dirk Nowitzki did just that, so now he gets to do whatever he wants.
And what does he want? Pretty much just to chill and eat the greatest food of all-time. From the AP:
“I’m going to enjoy this for a day,” Dirk Nowitzki said. “I think I’m gonna have some pizza and cheat on my diet.”
Greatest celebration ever? Probably. I enjoyed the exact same festivities last night without even winning a playoff series, so I am definitely on board with this. Get that pizza, son.
Looking at the menu for Papa John’s — official pizza of the NBA — I’d guess Dirk’s favorite order is the “Dirk’s Favorite,” which is a standard pizza topped with spätzle, bratwurst and a six-cheese blend. It sounds disgusting, which is accurate. Order today and get a free Cinnapie. Dirk Nowitzki would, and he’s awesome.
