Dirk Nowitzki has great reaction to missing dunk

Dirk Nowitzki is a conspiracy theorist.

In the early moments of the Dallas Mavericks’ 117-116 overtime win against the Sacramento Kings, Nowitzki tried to playfully dunk the ball after a goaltending call. The result was this embarrassment.

He later offered this explanation on Twitter for the miss.

"I didn’t fully jump, but I still thought I jumped high enough to kind of squeeze it in and walk it off, but I guess I didn’t," said the 7-footer. "That was probably my best play in the first half today, so I had that going for me."
