It has been a rough season for Dirk Nowitzki and his Dallas Mavericks. The star power forward has been dealing with injuries while his team continues to struggle on the season. The Mavs are currently 6-19.

Nowitzki acknowledged that father time is catching up to him, and revealed that he could end up retiring after this season.
“If things don’t go so well and it hurts everywhere, it could be that 2017 will be the end. Actually my plan is to complete the 20 years and play for Dallas until 2018.

“But just because I have signed a two year-contract doesn’t automatically mean that I will play for two years. It could happen next year.”
Nowitzki has carried the Mavericks for almost the past two decades, help leading the team to a championship back in 2011.
