Tonight was a historic night in the association, no Magic Johnson didn’t hold another bizarre press conference, it was Dirk Nowitzki’s final NBA game. A legendary 21 year career came to a close with a game against the Mavericks cross state rival the San Antonio Spurs.
As the game came to it’s final seconds Dirk got the ball one last time at the top of the key and drained his final NBA shot.

What you may have noticed is a certain former Beav defending the legend. It turns out that’s not exactly what Greg Popovich wanted him to do in that situation.
HAHAHAHAHA via Spurs broadcast, Pop was screaming at Eubanks “GET OFF OF HIM, LET HIM TAKE THE SHOT” when he was guarding Dirk on his last shot— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) April 11, 2019
Eubanks took to Twitter to thank Dirk for making the shot and hopefully helping him avoid Pop’s dog house
Thank you Dirk for making this https://t.co/QH71RlzpL0— Drew Eubanks (@DrewEubanks12) April 11, 2019
