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.

“I don’t think I’ll ever be a team coach,” Nowitzki said. “I saw with J-Kidd how he’s interested in plays and thinking ahead. That doesn’t interest me. I don’t care how you get me the ball. Just get the ball to me.

“Plays and stuff like that never interested me. It was just the skill level that interested me. I’m sure if I’m a coach one day I’ll do what Holger did for me, or what coach [Tim] Grugrich did here for us in the championship year, where you take the younger guys and work out every night. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
