Nowitzki Took ‘Heat’ for Timing of Surgery
There was an interesting comment from Dirk Nowitzki during his interview about the first surgery of his basketball career.
He said he felt like having the surgery done last Friday was good timing, but he got the impression others didn’t see it that way.
“I think it was the right moment to do it,’’ Nowitzki said. “Obviously, I took some heat for the timing of it, but if I would have fought through it this whole season – swelling off and on, having it drained here and there – I think it’s a bad situation for all involved.”
It’s unclear who Nowitzki was referencing when he said he took some heat.
