Dirk Nowitzki Remains the Toast of Dallas

Even in retirement, Dirk Nowitzki is still wildly popular in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

In fact, dude can't even go to the airport without a mob scene greeting him.

Of course, this is all dependent on his proximity to Ezekiel Elliott.

The tall German legend just returned from a trip abroad to China and was greeted by a phalanx of reporters when he landed.

Maybe the Cowboys and Mavericks can get that time-share program going again.

Finding a position for Dirk may prove to be more difficult.
