The American Airlines Center is one of the epicenters of the NBA grand final. The Dallas Mavericks stadium is, along with the TD Garden, the venue for the showdown between the Boston Celtics and the Dallas Mavericks. No one wants to miss a basketball party, and that’s why many of the Texans’ 2011 champion teams were there for the third game. JJ Barea, Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Caron Butler, Jason Terry, Tyson Chandler, Brian Cardinal and Corey Brewer were there, getting everyone out of their seats at halftime of the game, that the greens would win 106 to 99.

But before the game, in different places surrounding the stadium, different events are held to entertain the fans who arrive hours before the games. There are several booths with raffles, with a chance to win official team apparel, food, drinks and much more. Obviously, Keeping the more than 20,000 fans who came to the field entertained was no easy task, but the NBA remains one of the main motivators in these situations. But things aren’t always perfectly smooth, or you’d have to ask Dirk, who took a big hit in a street dunk display.

To put a little into perspective, The important thing is to clarify that Dirk is 2.13 meters tall, so jumping over him is obviously not the easiest task. But no one wanted to lower the boy’s expectations before the game, and there he went, trying to surpass the German. Needless to say, things turned bad. Momentum is not enough, which affects the height of the jump. Because of this, Nowitzki was hit in the back and ended up falling against the wall. Fortunately, there are no major problems for Dirk but, just in case, he won’t be signing up as a contributor to these dunks any time soon.
