Dirk Nowitzki celebrated his 35th birthday in Berlin by dining with President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Obama was in Berlin to make a speech at Brandenberg Gate. Afterward, he sat down to dinner with Nowitzki and several German dignitaries.

It isn’t the first time Nowitzki and Obama have met. They got to know each other a bit during the Mavericks’ trip to the White House after winning the 2011 NBA title.
