Rajon Rondo, a basketball savant who has never figured out the art of shooting, quietly observed Holger Geschwindner working with his masterpiece on the Dallas Mavericks’ practice court before the All-Star break.

After his shooting session was done, Dirk Nowitzki made an offer to his point guard, if not a suggestion.

“If you want to work with Holger, now is the time,” Nowitzki told Rondo, mentioning that Rondo would be sidelined another week to 10 days due to facial fractures. “You’re more than welcome.”

As Nowitzki recalled the moment, he added: “And Holger obviously loves challenges in his life.”

To his credit, Rondo, who earned a reputation for being difficult to coach in his younger years, embraced the opportunity to work with Dirk’s longtime mentor and shot doctor.
