Don’t quit your day job, Dirk

Upbeat and looking dapper in beige, Dirk Nowitzki moonlighted on the TV broadcast last night with Mark Followill, Brad Davis and Laura Green. Nowitzki took some questions, offered some commentary and goofed off during an earpiece malfunction.

Avery Johnson offered this up today with a smile when asked to critique Dirk’s performance.

“When I’m watching film, the one thing I’ve learned as a coach is do not listen to the commentary, so it’s always on the mute button,” Johnson said. “But if I knew it was Dirk, I would have listened.”

At least one teammate heard it. Jason Terry quipped: “I don’t think he’s got a job after basketball. Leave that to me.”
