We know that Dirk Nowitzki has different musical tastes than the average NBA players. Most guys are listening to Drake or J. Cole, while thinking Jay-Z is a god, and Nowitzki is listening to David Hasselhoff. So why not some Counting Crows? Frontman Adam Duritz is an NBA fan (Warriors to be specific), and they are a little bit older now, just like Dirk.
When Nowitzki was a younger player who would get nervous when he had to sink pressure free throws, he used to sing a little Counting Crows Mr. Jones to relax, he told Adam McKay and Adam Davidson on the Awesome Boring podcast. NBCSports.com
