National Johannes Thiemann can imagine an activity of the former basketball superstars Dirk Novitzki in the German national team.
"Yes, of course. Dirk has an incredible experience. If he speaks to the team, everyone would listen very well. That's why that would be a personnel that would definitely help us. How realistic these considerations are, I do not know," said the 28-year-old in an interview of the magazine "basketball superstarss Illustrated".
The new national coach Gordon Herbert had already talked about the idea to be able to integrate Novitzki in the future. Thiemann playing at basketball champion Alba Berlin can hardly imagine that a career as the Novitzki is repeated again.
"These are huge footsteps who left Dirk. Direct to produce the next Novitzki, that's hard," said Thiemann. This also belongs "good luck," he clarified. "You have to be at the right place at the right moment and in the right constitution. It's not just when you have talent."
