Dirk’s Domain: The Ultimate Career Retrospective of Dallas Mavericks Superstar Dirk Nowitzki

About the Project

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki is one of the most beloved athletes in Dallas-Fort Worth sports history. As it became evident that Nowitzki’s career was in its twilight, we knew we needed a unique product to commemorate Dirk’s 21 NBA seasons, all with the Mavericks. What we created is “Dirk’s Domain, the ultimate career retrospective of Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitki.” You can find it at

Dirk’s Domain is essentially a digital splash page that pulls together all of our best Nowitzki-related content from throughout his career. It contains archive content from when he first arrived in the United States, our best stories chronicling his final season, plus analysis of his legacy in Dallas and across the world. Individual entries take advantage of a variety of formats including long-form storytelling, commentary, data analysis and other interactive elements.
