Nowitzki Returns Home To Germany After NBA Title

WUERZBURG, GERMANY (AP) – NBA star Dirk Nowitzki received a hero’s welcome on Tuesday when he returned to his home town more than two weeks after leading the Dallas Mavericks to their first championship.

The German was welcomed by about 3,000 fans in a Wuerzburg sports hall and signed the golden book in the city hall.

The fans cheered “MVP, MVP” to welcome the most valuable player of the final series against the Miami Heat.

Nowitzki then got into a motorcade to join an outdoor party expected to draw 15,000 fans.

    Any idea where I can access a video or sound clip of the part during Dirk’s parade where he starts chanting UFTA?
    it was all over the radio that day and no where to be found on the Internet. 😦
