Dirk Nowitzki trying to fix a working microphone highlight of NBA playoffs so far (video)

Dirk Nowitzki

Dirk Nowitzki


It was great to watch playoff basketball, but let’s be honest: Opening weekend lacked high-end excitement. Not a single Game 1 was decided by fewer than seven points, though Wizards-Raptors went to overtime after Toronto’s 15-point comeback. Still, the Raptors losing takes some shine off that.

So, to me, the top highlight was Dirk Nowitzki’s press conference after the Mavericks’ loss to the Rockets.

Despite his microphone working, a frustrated Nowitzki was convinced it wasn’t. He banged on it a few times and then just disgustedly tossed it to the side.

Finally, he was told it had been working fine all along.

Even Dirk had to laugh at that.
