NBA legend Dirk Nowitzki has selected his all-time NBA European first and second team as part of the league’s anniversary celebrations.

This season the NBA is celebrating its 75th anniversary and as part of the 75 Euro vote, the Dallas Mavericks’ legend named his all-time first and second team from European players. 

Nowitzki, who was one of the best European players himself, winning an NBA and MVP trophy in his career and became the first European player to start the All-Star Game, named a Croatian in both his first and second team.
