Dirk Nowitzki, Jaromir Jagr get hilarious shoutout on SNL

Sunday May 15th, 2016

Two grizzled veterans — Panthers winger Jaromir Jagr and Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki — got a pretty hilarious shoutout on Saturday Night Live this week.

During the show’s “Black Jeopardy” sketch, Drake, playing a contestant from Canada named Jared, gave the hockey great as an answer to a sports question. The panel was asked “Bruh...He’s been playing for a while now, but he’s still putting up big numbers,” to which Jagr was an incorrect answer. It was actually Dirk Nowitzki! Or...Dirk Nabiscuit.

Here’s a clip of the exchange between Drake and Kenan Thompson.

Pretty good — Jagr played out of his mind this season at 44, and Dirk went to the postseason with Dallas at age 37.

Here’s the full sketch.

Most of SNL wasn’t great, but this was funny.
