Dallas Mavericks' Star Dirk Nowitzki Goes Country with Avett Brothers
Dirk Nowitzki took the stage armed only with a passion for rocking out and a mere tambourine. That is when awesome ensued.
There are a few things that come to mind when you hear the name Dirk Nowitzki. One might be a sweet jumper that consistently falls well out to the three-point line. Another might be the image of a world champion.
Well, you can now think of a good 'ol country boy who can rock out with his tambourine out with the best of them.
The Dallas Mavericks star recently took the stage with band the Avett Brothers, a North Carolina band that can get a little bit country.
While his time onstage was limited, it was wall-to-wall goodness as far as I am concerned.
Take the following picture.
That would be the culmination of awesome laying down with legendary and having a nice little phenomenal moment.
The video shows what kind of hootenanny that occurred the minute the NBA superstar took the stage.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the song is "I Killed Sally's Lover" from the Avett Brothers' 2003 LP, A Carolina Jubilee.
Nowitzki comes out at the 2:00 minute mark on the video. That's precisely the moment the crowd goes from crazed to full-on bananas.
Let me just say that Nowitzki owns the tambourine, an instrument they give to the slow kid that has limited musical talents growing up.
He wails on that thing, drops his head, closes his eyes and takes off to rock-and-roll land. This, my friends, is a first-hand look into Dirk Nowitzki having an amazing time.
