Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki may be 37-years-old but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a savage in the streets of Twitter.com.
On Saturday, Pau Gasol held a fun contest for his followers ahead of what will be his 1,000th career game: Tweet a video of your favorite Pau play! The winner gets a big prize.
The rules were as follows:
• Pau Gasol had to make the play
• The play must be from a regular season game
• Be creative!
Well, Dirk decided to crash the party with a video of a brutal posterization of Pau by Nikola Vucevic last season:
Damn! Pau fell to the ground! That’s a devious method of congratulating someone.
Gasol tried to play it like a champ, but you could tell by his liberal emoji use that he was clearly a bit taken aback.
Dirk, the clear winner of this contest, would now like to know how he can collect his winnings.
Pau’s 1000th game starts at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday. He will visit Dallas on Dec. 26, and try to exact revenge on Dirk.
