The NBA is currently having a fairly quiet off-season now that players have finally landed in their final places before the regular season kicks off.
Given the current state of the NFL and all the controversy surrounding that league, the NBA, its teams, players and executives may just be happy for an uneventful period right now.
After the initial rush of free agency in which names such as LeBron James, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons all swapped teams.
Meanwhile people such as Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony all stayed loyal to their teams by returning home.
So with all the major stories surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers, some for the other NBA franchises have come under the spotlight for numerous reasons.
Now, arguably the biggest name at the Dallas Mavericks has given all NBA fans something to smile and laugh about.
The former NBA MVP Dirk Nowitzki is currently back in his home country of Germany and has taken on a very different role than what he has in Dallas.
Basketball player, role model and singer?
You may not associate Nowitzki with the art of singing but while back home, he has admitted to being a big fan of 'the Hoff', David Hasselhoff.
Nowitzki just happened to be making an appearance on a German talk show at the time that Hasselhoff's 'Looking for Freedom' celebrated 25 years since the songs release.
So what did Nowitzki do? Well he gave the live audience and everyone watching at home a performance of the song.
It may be worth skipping to about 2:00 into the video if you don't speak German.
The live audience certainly loved the segment and Mavericks fans can surely only be hoping that he is as in tune come the start of the new season.
A look ahead
The Mavericks made the first round of the post-season last year but fell to the eventual NBA champions the San Antonio Spurs.
Now, ahead of the new season, Nowitzki and the rest of the Mavericks will be hoping to repeat their performance in the regular season and make it to the play-offs once again.
They open the season with a road trip to Texas to play the Spurs once again before their first home game which comes against the Utah Jazz.
