Forth Worth’s Tristan Luttrell wrote a beautiful letter about Dirk Nowitzki to the Dallas Morning News.“Basketball fans from across the nation we were able to come together and recognize not just the incredible athlete, but an incredible person. We in Dallas have gotten to watch him grow from a 19-year-old kid into the man he is today. Because of this, fans are ecstatic to hear that Dirk will be staying in Dallas now that his playing career is over. Like he said, he is a Texan forever, and we are more than happy to have him here!”
