Two weeks ago, we shared with you the story of WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan visiting a sick little boy in the hospital and letting the kid tap him out. It was heartwarming, and a reminder that sometimes the world of sports can be good to people, and not just soul-crushing and full of sex tapes.
In that spirit, here’s a clip of Dirk Nowitzki visiting Will Kolassa at the Dallas Children’s Medical Center over the holidays, giving him an iPod and playing a little one-on-one. Oh, and when he’s done, he helps Will film a comedy vignette about why he missed practice. Sports celebrities do stuff like this all the time, and in a better world we’d only be sharing news like this. Dirk is an awesome guy, and this kid gets the memory of scoring a bucket on Dirk Nowitzki for the rest of his life.
Of course, my favorite part of the video is Dirk outfitted in the biggest scrubs in history, moving around all gangly and reminding me way too much of Dr. Satan from House Of 1,000 Corpses. Here, see for yourself:
