Well, you don’t see that every day.

And not just because you don’t watch a lot of German talk shows.

Dirk Nowitzki is doing the German talk show circuit promoting a new documentary about himself, cramming it in before training camp opens. But if you think anything with Dirk is going to be serious and studious.

Before you go off mocking the Hasselhoff song, know the song “Looking for Freedom” was a huge hit in that country in 1989-90 as East and West Germany were going through reunification and it has emotional ties to that. It’s the song Hasselhoff performed at the Berlin Wall as it was being torn down. It was a huge hit there.

How Hasselhoff got to be huge in Germany is beyond me, but I don’t want to begrudge a man his success.

Plus... Dirk can play a little.
