One intriguing thought for (Dirk Nowitzki) him is the possibility of coaching.

“Some of the stuff Holger has done with me, I’d love to keep that going,” Nowitzki said of his mentor and personal coach, Holger Geschwindner. “Holger mentioned it to me before, ‘What you have learned from me, I want you to give to someone else someday.’ Maybe I’ll do that a little bit later — individual coaching.”

While coaching could theoretically be in his future, Nowitzki doesn’t figure to follow in the footsteps of former teammate Jason Kidd, now coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
