Wurzburg set to honor Dirk Nowitzki
By Marc Stein
The second parade of the month for Mavs star Dirk Nowitzki takes place Tuesday in his hometown of Wurzburg in Bavaria.
Nowitzki flew home over the weekend after his first-pitch duties at Friday night's Rangers game and will be honored by his countrymen in a city hall ceremony and afternoon procession through the city.
He'll also meet the German press for the first time since leading the Mavericks to the franchise's first championship, which was followed by an emotional parade through downtown Dallas and the celebration of Nowitzki's 33rd birthday on June 19.
