The Dallas Mavericks are heading into the All-Star break with 33 wins. That matches their total after all 82 games last season. They are back in the thick of the playoff race with a bright future built around Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.
The Mavs are doing it all in their first season without Dirk Nowitzki since 1998. The legend retired after 21 seasons in Dallas. He brought the Mavericks a championship and so many memorable moments. He will go down as one of the all-time greats.
Dirk has been living it up in retirement, though.
