Above all, he emphasizes the versatility of the native of Würzburg. “He could shoot threes, dribble, play with his face or his back to the basket. He has incredible basketball talent,” enthuses the 28-year-old.

That’s why Portis has “nothing but respect for what he did on the basketball court.” After all, Nowitzki is one of “the top 10 scorers” in NBA history.

Behind them are Karee Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) and Karl Malone (36,928) on the podium. The top 5 is completed by Kobe Bryant (33,643) and Michael Jordan (32,292).
