Dirk doesn’t want to be reminded how old he is

It was Dirk Nowitzki’s birthday this week.

It’s no secret that he’s one of the oldest players in the league. The NBA wished him a Happy 39th Birthday on Monday, but he doesn’t want to be reminded his age.

Nowitzki isn’t the oldest player in the NBA. Two of his former Mavericks teammates, Vince Carter and Jason Terry, are older and still playing.
