Dirk Nowitzki will play in EuroBasket 2015 for Germany this September.
Germany is hosting Group B in Berlin.
"If it [the EuroBasket] was anywhere else, at the age of 37, it probably would have been a no-go for me.
"But when I heard that EuroBasket would be played in Berlin, a great basketball city, it was something I had dreamt about.
"Like every year, the DBB let me take my decision after the NBA season and, in the end, the national team was lucky that we [Dallas Mavericks] lost so early," said Nowitzki.
