In his native Germany, Dirk Nowitzki attended the 50th anniversary of the famous "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech made by the late U.S. President John F. Kennedy in front of Berlin's famous Brandenburg Gate.
President Barack Obama delivered a speech in Berline with Dirk in attendance; he then later he rubbed elbows and ate dinner with some of the most powerful people in the world.
In this photo Dirk is seated near President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel and was reportedly overheard asking, "Who cares about the economy - get me a (bleepin') point guard."
Who knew missing the playoffs had such advantages?
