In our blog today, we are discussing the autograph signing habits of Dirk Nowizki. In a time when most superstar players in the NBA (Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and so on) don’t take time for their fans, Mr. Nowitzki is a breath of fresh air. I have encountered him probably a dozen or so time over the years and have never seen him turn down an autograph request. He is friendly and seems to love interacting with his many admirers. He will graciously sign multiple items, pose for pictures and chat it up with pretty much anyone who is interested in him. I remember one time in particular when a fan wanted his picture taken with Dirk. For some reason, his camera wouldn’t work. The German superstar waited patiently for five minutes or so, finally taking a look at the fans camera and suggesting a solution. After making some minor adjustments to his camera, the fan got his picture with the Dallas Mavericks legend.
Frankly, all of this recent success couldn’t happen to more deserving, nicer person. I for one am very, very happy for him. Let’s hope the Mavericks win it all.
