Dirk Nowitzki shares great throwback photo of Mark Cuban, Steve Nash

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki is playing in his 18th season as a member of the team, and he has played with many great players during the course of his career.

Steve Nash is one of those players, and the two comprised a great one-two punch in the early 2000s.

Nowitzki and Nash are still friends, and to remember their time spent together, Dirk posted a great “Throwback Thursday” photo which shows him getting a piggyback ride from owner Mark Cuban, posing next to Nash. And of course he and Nash were rocking cowboy hats.
