Dirk Nowitzki shares playing plan, more on Twitter
After tweeting to his followers that he had 20 minutes to take questions, @swish41 spent more than 90 minutes providing answers about a wide variety of topics.
Perhaps the most newsworthy response came when the Mavs' superstar was asked how many more years he'd play. His reply was "2 for sure and then see how I feel."
Nowitzki has two years remaining on the four-year deal he signed with the Mavericks before the 2010-11 season.
If he continues his NBA career after his current contract, he indicated he wouldn't go chasing another ring. When asked if he'd jump ship for a super team, he replied, "I bleed blue."
Nowitzki was optimistic he'd be able to win another ring without leaving Dallas, however. When asked if the Mavs can win it all this year, he replied, "I always feel that way."
Among the other revelations from the newlywed:
* He wished Jason Terry well in Boston, calling him "fam for life," and said former teammates Steve Nash and Michael Finley are "My homeboys."
* He prefers red wine over beer, and dogs over cats.
* Charles Barkley is his favorite player from the 1992 Dream Team, and Kobe Bryant is the best player he's ever faced.
* His favorite TV show is "Eastbound & Down," and "Braveheart" is his favorite movie. His favorite bands are the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.
* If he wasn't a basketball player he'd be a rock star or a painter.
