ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Dirk Nowitzki is a talented dude. He’s a franchise player, an MVP, and as we see below, he does a mean David Hasselhoff cover.
The backstory for this clip below starts nearly a decade ago, when Dirk admitted that to help himself relax at the free throw line, he would sometimes sing to himself. The one song he singled out as a nerve calmer? David Hasselhoff‘s “Looking for Freedom,” which was a hit in Germany in 1989, when Dirk was growing up. The Hoff performed the song at the Berlin Wall as it was being dismantled, and the song stayed at number one in Germany for two months.
So this week, while on a German talk show to promote a documentary about himself, Nowitzki was presented with a guitar and asked to sing along. The Hoff must be proud…
