Would the real Dirk Nowitzki please stand up ?

As my push to fitness continues I’ve been running or swimming every day, and on the days I’m feeling particularly motivated I do both. For a little while now I’ve been using the Nike + app on the iPhone to track my runs and try and get an additional boost of motivation, and I’ve had feedback from various celebs in the automated congratulatory sound bites within the app.  I posted a little while ago about how I thought Ellie Gouldings inclusion was a bit bizarre, but I had also wondered who Dirk Nowitzki was.  I appreciated  his congratulations, always given with gusto (which being that it’s the same recording isn’t surprising) but I had no idea who he was.

If you hadn’t realized up until this point I don’t watch much NBA.

So sitting in a bar the other night tucking into my wings and supping back on my beer when none other than Dirk Nowitzki  pops up on-screen for a short interview. His voice is pretty recognizable so there was no mistake from the off, but he doesn’t look like he sounds if that makes sense.  I my mind he was about 20 years older and 100lbs heavier, a kind of jolly bearded coach of a man.  It turns out although a big guy he’s a professional athlete, which given the athletic context of the sound bite does make sense, but does bring my back to WTF is Ellie Goulding doing on there?
