The Dallas Mavericks held their championship ring ceremony on Wednesday night before they took on the Timberwolves.  The reigning NBA Finals MVP, Dirk Nowitzki, is sitting out while he nurses a knee injury, but as you can see from the video above he contributed plenty to the evening.  Dirk sat at the Fox Sports Southwest commentator’s desk during some of the first half.  When Jason Terry threw an alley-oop to Brandan Wright to give the Mavs a 37-31 lead, Dirk did what any good commentator would do. “Oh my God! Ohhhhh! Shut it dowwwwwn! Lets go hoooome!” was the call television viewers were treated to. And just like that, Dirk Nowitzki became even more of a star.
