Dirk Nowitzki Presented With Key To City of Dallas

Mayor Mike Rawlings honored Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki with a Key to the City during halftime of tonight’s game against the Brooklyn Nets in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the community and his professional achievements over his 20-year career with the Mavericks. Nowitzki is only the third person to receive a Key to the City from Mayor Rawlings since he took office in 2011.

“Dirk embodies everything Dallas residents should aspire to be,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. “For any sports fan out there, he’s a joy to watch, always striving for excellence and giving 110 percent. But what many don’t fully understand is how diligent, passionate, humble and generous Dirk is, on and off the court. Dallas is so fortunate and proud to have a leader like him in our city. He is a class act, a man who consistently puts his teammates, his city and his family before himself.”

Nowitzki accepted the key at halftime, joined by the mayor, Dallas City council members and three high school students who assisted in creating a larger ceremonial key specially made for Nowitzki.

“I’m very honored, very humbled. It’s been a long great ride here. 20 years representing this city proudly…the franchise, the city, and the fanbase,” Nowitzki said.  “Dallas has supported me and took me in from day one.  We grew together and I have done everything in my power to give back to this city.  Thank you.”

Among Nowitzki’s notable humanitarian contributions:

  • Grants made annually to organizations focusing on children’s wellbeing, health and education through The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation – Last year, the Foundation raised $960,000 and held its annual Pro Celebrity Tennis Classic raising $1.92 million for Hurricane Harvey victims.  His foundation also holds monthly meetings with Hurricane Harvey victims to help families start over and re-enter the workforce.
  • Hurricane relief efforts – Nowitzki donated to the JJ Barea Foundation to assist Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico. He also helped 10 families who were relocated to Dallas from Houston after Hurricane Harvey.
  • Annual Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game to benefit various local nonprofits such as Girls Embracing Mothers, Alley’s House, Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
  • Annual visits to patients at Children’s Medical Center.
  • “Dirk’s Dunkers” – Nowitzki hosts special guests from youth-based nonprofit organizations, underserved schools and veteran groups in this section of the American Airlines Center.
  • Seats for Soldiers–Nowitzki, along with his teammates, signs hundreds of autographs while spending time with wounded soldiers from the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio and reserve troops from the Dallas-Fort Worth area following the Seats for Soldiers game each fall.

In recognition of Nowitzki’s global humanitarian efforts, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth honored him with the prestigious H. Neil Mallon Award in September 2017.

On the court, Nowitzki is the Mavericks’ all-time leader in points (31,187), games played (1,471), starts (1,440), minutes (50,573), rebounds (11,331), defensive rebounds (9,868), field goals made (11,034), 3-pointers made (1,918), free throws made (7,201) and blocks (1,263). He has led the Mavericks to 15 NBA playoff appearances, including the franchise’s first Finals appearance in 2006 and its only NBA championship in 2011, where he was named Most Valuable Player. He is a 13-time All-Star, a 12-time All-NBA Team member, the first European player to start in an All-Star Game, and the first European player to receive the NBA Most Valuable Player Award in 2007.

Nowitzki is one of only seven players to play at least 20 seasons in the NBA and is the only player in NBA history to play 21 seasons with the same franchise. He is the top foreign-born scorer in league history, the only foreign-born player in the NBA’s 30,000-point club, one of seven players in NBA history to reach 31,000 career points and is seventh on NBA’s all-time points leaders. On December 10, 2012, he became the first non-American player to receive the Naismith Legacy Award. He has also received the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award (2016-17) and the Magic Johnson Award (2013-14).

Dallas Mavericks Hosts SEATS For SOLDIERS Tonight

The Dallas Mavericks, American Airlines and Nick & Sam’s are proud to partner again for the 14thAnnual Seats for Soldiers, a one-of-a-kind experience to honor our nation’s heroes. More than 100 wounded service members from Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio will join reserve troops from the Dallas/Fort Worth area to enjoy dinner at Nick & Sam’s Park Cities, as well as courtside seats at the Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz game, tonight Nov. 14, at American Airlines Center.

“Our annual Seats for Soldiers night is a reminder that we don’t get to enjoy the game we love without the incredible sacrifices our soldiers make,” said Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. “This game is one small way for the Dallas Mavericks and our season ticket holders to say ‘Thank You’ and acknowledge the bravery of the men and women in uniform.”

The concept for Seats for Soldiers originated with Dallas Mavericks season ticket holders Neal and Jamie Hawks, who, along with other front-row season ticket holders, have donated their seats – valued at $350,000 – year after year to host the wounded service members. After the game, the soldiers get the opportunity to meet and take photos with Mavericks players, coaches, dancers, ManiAACs and DJ Poizon Ivy.

The day begins with American Airlines providing charter transportation from San Antonio to Dallas/Fort Worth though Fuel Smart, the airline’s team member-led fuel conservation program that helps provide flights for injured service members, veterans and their families using funds generated through team members’ everyday actions to save fuel. In addition, American’s pilots and flight attendants volunteer their time for the occasion.

“Giving back to the men and women who serve our country is a tremendous honor for the 130,000 team members of American Airlines,” said David Seymour, American’s senior vice president – Integrated Operations, and graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. “American is honored and humbled by the sacrifice these individuals have made and it is our privilege to partner with the Mavs and Nick & Sam’s to give them a much-deserved night of great food and NBA basketball.”

After arriving at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, the group of soldiers will be treated to a four-course dinner at Nick & Sam’s Park Cities, prior to attending the Mavs vs. Jazz game. This year’s menu, created by Nick & Sam’s Corporate Chef and Partner Samir Dhurandhar, features a first course of shrimp and grits, creole crab cakes with a Cajun remoulade, prime beef egg rolls, and a sushi platter consisting of kung pao lobster rolls, crispy tuna and shrimp tempura rolls. The second course is a Caesar salad. The main course features an Allen Brothers 10 oz. prime filet with sides of mashed sweet potatoes, green beans with almonds and creamed corn maux choux. The meal concludes with Dallas Mavericks seven-layer cake, pecan pie and pumpkin pie. Beverage service will also be provided, all free of charge to the service members, and the Nick & Sam’s staff will also volunteer their time to host the group.

NIGOS Release MV for Narcos

Straight off the heels of winning the BET Award as Best Group, superstar multi-platinum hip-hop trio Migos today release the video for their chart-topping song Narcos. This marks Quavo’s directorial debut, with co-direction by Joseph Desrosiers.
WATCH HERE.
Narcos already has more than 153 million streams and was recently performed by the group on Saturday Night Live. Migos take the music on the road this summer on Aubrey and the Three Migos tour with Drake (full dates below).
The GRAMMY-nominated trio of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff released their second consecutive album to land at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, CULTURE II (Quality Control Music Motown Records / Capitol), in January of 2018. Sunday at the 2018 BET Awards Migos were recognized as the Best Group, the award given to the overall best R&B, hip hop or gospel group who has release an album in the previous or same year. Migos has hit another milestone this year being honored with the ASCAP Vanguard Award from the 31stAnnual ASACAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards.
Recently Migos made history by tying The Beatles for the most simultaneous entries on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart among groups (with 14 songs on the chart) according to Nielsen Music. CULTURE II has been streamed over 1 billion times and is RIAA Certified Platinum. Migos is now one of only five rap groups with multiple No. 1 albums. CULTURE II topped the iTunes albums charts in 60 countries and debuted at No. 1 in 62 countries on Apple Music, achieving one of the largest streaming debut weeks in Apple Music’s history.
In a cover story, Rolling Stone said, Migos aren’t big. They’re gigantic. Twenty-six-year-old Offset, his 26-year-old cousin Quavo and Quavo’s 23-year-old nephew Takeoff have transcended hip-hop to become shapers of the culture.
Their blockbuster single MotorSport, featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, earned Double Platinum status in Canada, and RIAA Certified Platinum status in the US. Their second single, Stir Fry, produced by Pharrell Williams, was the official song for NBA’s All-Star weekend. This year alone the group performed on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, graced the covers of Rolling Stone and Complex and was nominated for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance at the 2018 Grammy Awards.

New Music from Julia Micheals and Trippie Redd

GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist JULIA MICHAELS returns with a brand new single entitled “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] today. Get it HERE (Post & Share) via Republic Records.

The song heralds the arrival of her anxiously awaited full-length debut—coming soon.

The single reteams JULIA with frequent producer Nick Monson and longtime co-writer Justin Tranter. On the track, ethereal production ignites a groundswell of energy as the singer’s breathy verses culminate on a huge hypnotic hook just before Ohio rap maverick Trippie Redd drops an emotive and engaging verse of his own.

Since emerging in 2015, JULIA has transformed pop not only from behind-the-scenes as a songwriter whose credits span everyone from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez, but in the spotlight as a solo artist. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric. Within just a year since arrival, she garnered 2018 GRAMMY® nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues. That honesty is also why “Issues” received a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA, cracked 1 billion global streams and consumption of 10 million, became “the top-selling debut single by any artist in 2017, and placed on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” as the only solo female contribution. It’s why the industry recognized her with nominations everywhere from American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards and RDMA’s to the MTV VMAS and MTV EMAS.

Extending and expanding her influence, she traffics at the forefront of numerous genres. She lent her voice to Clean Bandit’s international hit “I Miss You,which became her first Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Dance Songs chart. Right now, she also features on Keith Urban’s latest single “Coming Home” and rising artist Noah Kahan’s single “Hurt Somebody.”  Other collaborations include a duet and writing credits on Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album, songs on Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album, a co-writing credit for Janelle Monàe’s latest “Make Me Feel, and a sample of her vocals on Migos“Gang Gang.Moreover, she’s written on recent albums from P!nk, Maroon 5, and Jesse Ware.

Next up on May 18, she performs “Jump” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and on the Today Show Summer Concert SeriesJuly 27.

Julia continues to shine on stage as well. Following sold out shows alongside Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan  overseas, she embarks on her first official U.S. tour, joining Maroon 5 for the Red Pill Blues Tour beginning this June (see dates below).

“Jump” is just the beginning. Be on the lookout for more soon!
