It’s been an NBA kind of day around the old website here, so it seems only fitting we feature another NBA related post, albeit one that is quite a bit more fanciful and carefree than Dwight Howard’s airball free throw and Kobe’s terrifying death stare.
Enter Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki. The big German is a fave around these parts because he’s not averse to doing hilariously goofy things for the enjoyment of others. This time he’s trying his hand at singing Bruce Springsteen’s classic Born in the USA—despite the fact that he doesn’t know the lyrics—in something called Mavs Playeraoke.
Nice to see Disco Dirk’s dancing is just as bad as his singing. Pretty sure that half of that song he sang in German, and the other half in garbled English. I’m not up on The Boss’ tunes, but I can almost guarantee that there isn’t any reference to ham in the original Born in the USA, unlike the closing line in Nowitzki’s version.
Still better than anything Justin Bieber’s ever recorded.

Video: Dirk completely annihilates a classic
And it’s just as bad as you thought it would be. It should be illegal for any man who WASN’T born in the USA to sing this song, but especially super-illegal for a goofy seven-foot tall man who was born in Germany. The Boss deserves better.

Mavericks All-World forward Dirk Nowitzki jammed to some Bruce Springsteen to pass the time as he recovers from knee surgery he had a couple weeks ago.
Nowitzki, born in Wurzburg, Germany, showed his appreciation for the stars and bars by destroying “Born in the U.S.A.” His performance fails the smell test, but his passion reigns supreme. We need more Dirk.

The Dallas Mavericks suffered a big blow when they lost 11-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki to knee surgery. O.J. Mayo's play of late has made Nowitzki's absence a little easier to withstand.
Having scored 30 or more points in consecutive games, Mayo will try to keep that streak going Wednesday night against the visiting Toronto Raptors.
The Mavericks (3-1) signed Mayo with...
At some point in the next few weeks, the Dallas Mavericks will welcome Dirk Nowitzki back to the lineup. But against all odds, they're doing just fine without him.
In past seasons the Mavs have looked lost without their superstar. But with a surprising 4-1 start, they appear to be flourishing. And with each passing day, the degree of difficulty seems to rise. Already missing...
His musical icon, David Hasselhoff, should beware.
