Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki, on December 25, 2022, became the latest NBA star to have his statue installed in the USA. Recently, the four-time NBA champion, Shaquille O'Neal asked the NBA fans on Twitter to pick their favorite statue of the NBA legends including Shaq, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.
