7 footers look ridiculous doing pretty much anything other than playing basketball. Yesterday, at a charity soccer match in honor of the late F1 driver Michael Schumacher, Dirk Nowitzki provided more evidence to support this argument.
Nowitzki looked like an escaped giraffe running around the pitch, and provided some cringe worthy, but hilarious highlights.
His best non-highlight came when he attempted a vomit inducing bicycle kick on a cross into the box.

Dirk also took an opportunity to mock Italy’s Zaza’s infamous missed penalty kick from this year’s European Championship semifinal shootout versus Germany. His impression was spot on.

Even if Dirk won’t be appearing in the Bundesliga any time soon, he can always fall back on his Hall of Fame basketball career. Not a bad Plan B.
