With his victory speech, the 41-year-old looks back on his career, mourns his colleague Kobe Bryant and gives emotional advice to the next generation of sports. Dirk Nowitzki’s advice to the next generation of athletes was more than haunting. “” Try all sports, find what you really love. You won’t get great if you don’t do what you love. Live your dream “” said the former basketball superstar in Berlin. Shortly before, the 41-year-old had received the award for his life’s work at the Laureus World Sports Awards.

The sport taught me lessons for life, “” said the former Dallas Mavericks pro, glancing around. There his wife Jessica nodded to him again and again in the audience with a smile on her face. Superstars like Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who was honored as Sportsman of the Year together with football icon Lionel Messi, listened attentively to every word Nowitzki said. “” A lot of people in this room have inspired me to be great, “said Nowitzki, describing the award as a” “great honor” “before taking a look into the past:” “I was lucky enough to be in one Sports family growing up.

I grew up in sports halls and loved every minute of it. “” He still hasn’t quite got over his resignation in April 2019, and the 2.13 meter tall Franconian fondly thinks back to his career. The highlight was winning the title in the North American professional league NBA in 2011. “” I’m still in the phase where I’m missing it. But I think that will be better, “” said Nowitzki. The former German national player also had an appeal for other athletes. “We athletes have a large platform,” said Nowitzki.

This must be used to make a difference in society outside of sports halls, soccer fields or other arenas. Nowitzki named his old teammates Steve Nash and Michael Finley, who were good examples to him. “” They showed me how to be great off the field. “” His entire career has been “” a fun trip “”. Despite many hardships and countless training units. “We athletes are in the fortunate position of turning a hobby into a profession and making a lot of money with it,” said Nowitzki: “” I love sport and know that I have touched many people in the world.

I look back on my 21 years in the NBA and I’m just happy. “” “” Deeply sad “” Nowitzki was made by the sudden death of Kobe Bryant, who was killed in a tragic helicopter crash near Los Angeles. “” He stood for hard work and for the fact that one must never be satisfied, “said Nowitzki about his long-time companion. “” That was a difficult time for me. “” Source: ntv.de, Thomas Wolfer and Marie Reichenbach, dpa “Simply good. (Photo: imago images / LaPresse) Mönchengladbach could even win the Champions League Nevertheless, the team flies home satisfied after the rather unfortunate draw in Milan.

After a short night, the professionals from Borussia Mönchengladbach got tired , but satisfied at Milan Airport Malpensa on the special flight home. The brief frustration with the late equalizer had already given way on Thursday morning to satisfaction with a remarkable start to the Champions League season. Even a victory at Inter Milan was within reach , but the Bundesliga team was clearly more proud of the 2-2 (0-0) performance in the turbulent opening game of Hammer Group B.to kill a mockingbird essay claims Inter: Handanovic – D’Ambrosio, de Vrij, Kolarov – Darm ian, Barella, Vidal, Perisic (79.

Penalty), 1: 2 Hofmann (84th), 2: 2 Lukaku (90th) Spectators: 1000Yellow cards: D’Ambrosio, de Vrij, Handanovic – Kramer Before his premier class debut as a coach, Marco Rose had the high-profile opponent as ” “an absolute top team in Europe” “praised. Not least because of this, the 44-year-old was not angry that his eleven allowed the equalizer through the two-time goalscorer Romelu Lukaku (49th / 90th) in the final minute. Rose ticked off the moment of inattentiveness in the otherwise very good defense around Matthias Ginter and Nico Elvedi under the aspect of “” apprenticeship “”. “” If you are leading so late, you obviously want the three points. But now we take the point, take this experience with us, “said Rose.

For a long time, the VfL defense had the strong Inter offensive under control with the powerful star attacker Lukaku. Until the Belgian escaped and struck twice more. “” You can’t turn off such players one hundred percent. I think Lukaku has two chances: he scores the first goal from four meters, the second from half a meter. It’s just where the ball goes “”, national defender Ginter groaned about the last-minute goal after a corner: “” When you take a 2-1 lead so close to the end, it’s annoying in the 90th. Minute to have to accept the compensation.

We should have defended the corner better. “” Nevertheless, the Gladbach defensive team received the most praise. “” The defensive performance was very, very good over long stretches. The guys have been with us for a couple of years. Even so, Lukaku scored two goals, “” said Rose. Borussia’s bravely set up attack series with Marcus Thuram, Breel Embolo, Jonas Hofmann and Alassane Plea, on the other hand, took a long time to get dangerously in front of the Inter goal. After the 1-1 draw by Ramy Bensebaini (63./Foul penalty), things went better.

And after Hofmann’s goal (85th), the away win was in the air. The Gladbachers themselves seemed a little surprised that they were suddenly in the front in the legendary Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in front of only 1000 fans. The 2-1 shooter Hofmann, served by Florian Neuhaus with a fantastic pass, spoke of a “rollercoaster of emotions” “. The disappointment lingered a little longer on the 28-year-old. “” It took forever after my goal for us to know that we could win the game, “” he admitted. “” Before the game, few would have believed that we would take something with us.

Now I have to say that I’m a little disappointed with one point, “said Hofmann. With captain Christoph Kramer the pride prevailed: “” Before we would have signed a draw for sure. “” Source: ntv.de, Ulli Brünger, dpa “Lautaro Martinez put Inter Milan in the lead.
