It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Tom Izzo took his team over to Germany to win a basketball game against Connecticut. But while they’re there, the players and coaches have met and hung out with the troops stationed in Ramstein, put on a basketball clinic for the young Dirk Nowitzki’s of the world and took a quick jaunt on a C-130 transport plane.
Here’s video of their flight on the plane that transports troops, food and cargo. Coach Izzo was stoked about his time spent in the cockpit looking like a total badass (above). The pilot on the left, Todd John Beales, is from Izzo’s hometown – Iron Mountain, Michigan.

Video: Dirk completely annihilates a classic
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.

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...
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...
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.
