LOS ANGELES: Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki confirmed his retirement from the NBA on Tuesday, calling time on a 21-season career that saw him become the greatest European player ever to grace the league.

The 40-year-old German had left the door open to extending his career for another season, but finally confirmed his retirement after the Mavericks’ 120-109 win over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

“As you guys might expect, this is my last home game,” an emotional Nowitzki told the home crowd at Dallas’s American Airlines Center.
