By many measures, 13-time NBA All-Star Dirk Nowitzki has led a long, storied career. Born in Germany, Nowitzki has been a power-forward for the Dallas Mavericks since 1998, is the highest-scoring foreign-born player in NBA-history, and is currently ranked 6th in all-time scoring with over 31,000+ regular-season points.
But in 2012, on his way to another record-book year, an injury and arthroscopic surgery on his right knee put that career on hold. Nowitzki missed Dallas’ first 27 games that year, and struggled to recover. When his athletic trainer introduced him to the Bauerfeind products and everything turned around.
