Mavsí fan sends Nowitzki $20 for lunch to thank him for taking discounts


Future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki will make $5 million this season. In the NBA salary value scale, that qualifies as a Jessie James bank heist. Last season owner Mark Cuban had some extra salary cap space, so he paid the franchiseís greatest player $25 million, but the two seasons before that Nowitzki took a steep discount to help the team and made $8.3 million and $7.9 million. Taking those haircuts deep into a well-paid career allowed Cuban to put a better team around Nowitzki.

One Mavs fan wanted to thank Nowitzki for his sacrifice, so heís buying the big German lunch. Sort of.

Love that.

For the record, Dirk has made $245,371,801 in NBA salary, before his first paycheck this season. Thatís not including any endorsements. So he can probably still pick up the tab at Chipotle. But like your mom said, itís the thought that counts.
