Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash share a special relationship. 

After years together with the Dallas Mavericks, and after multiple battles against each other once Nash moved on to the Phoenix Suns, the two remain close friends to this day. 

So close, that when Nash is inducted into Phoenix's Ring Of Honor, Nowitzki will be there to see it all. 

Despite the busy schedule of an NBA season, Nowitzki has already said that he plans on flying to Phoenix to be there for Nash's ceremony. 

Nash and Nowitzki played together in Dallas for six seasons. Nash retired from basketball this offseason due to back injuries.
