Mavericks Muhammad Ali sent Nowitzki a signed boxing glove after Championship victory

Wow! That's pretty cool.

Quote:
After winning the NBA Championship, Dirk Nowitzki received probably the greatest gift any sports fan/player could receive. He received a package from Muhammad Ali that included a boxing glove that was signed "you are the greatest." Large praise from maybe the most recognizable athlete around the world.

According to spiegel.de:
Nowitzki: I think that (German Chancellor) Angela Merkel called my adviser. I'm not totally sure. But do you know what made me the happiest?

SPIEGEL: What?

Nowitzki: Muhammad Ali sent me a package.

SPIEGEL: What was in it?

Nowitzki: A boxing glove with the inscription: "You are the greatest." Please don't ask me immediately about the political meaning of the gift. I was simply happy and sent Ali a golden basketball with a similar inscription.
