Considered to be one of the greatest power forwards in the league, Dirk Nowitzki, a professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks, doesn't leave home without his gear and, well, a to-go plate.
Wrapped tight in aluminum foil without much room for us to see what's inside, this 7-foot-tall German baller is serious about his meals.
Fans joke that the to-go plates are a result of being married to a black woman.
And that it might be improving his game.
Supposedly it has landed him a cordial invite to the cookout.
As long as he brings a plate, he's welcome to any cookout I'm hosting.
