Nike Hoop Summit 1998: Young Dirk Nowitzki MVP with 33pts & 14rebs

Dirk Nowitzki rocking the 1998 Nike Hoop Summit. Dirk scored 33 points (may of the free throw line!) and caught 14 rebounds. Amazing basketball talent and amazing performance.

Nowitzki was part of the International Select Team that beat the US Basketball Junior National Select Team in San Antonio, Texas, on March 29th 1998.

Who would have thought that the German teen would later be one of the most effective NBA players? Partially due to Dirk's almost unstoppable fade-away jumper, he is not only part of the very elite 50-40-90 club (50+ FG% - 40+ 3FG% - 90+ FT%), Dirk Nowitzki has also made it to both regular season MVP (in 2007) and finals MVP in 2011 when he won the NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in game 6.
