Dirk Nowitzki is very good at basketball. He won an NBA championship and an MVP award, and he's been an All-Star 13 times during a career that will whisk him into the Hall of Fame when he finally hangs up his sneakers.

Nowitzki is very bad at soccer, his other love. And his terribleness was on full display during a recent charity soccer game in his home country of Germany. Nowitzki, the captain of the Nowitzki All-Stars, looked bad enough to be banned from all soccer stadiums forever. First, he completely shanked a penalty kick, booting the ball so high and to the right that he would have missed the net even if he were a foot away.

Then, Nowitzki attempted the worst bicycle kick in the history of bicycle kicks. He doesn't even make contact with the ball. He just falls to the turf like the kid on your team in rec league soccer who was totally uncoordinated in any physical activity.
Dirk, you're the best, but maybe give soccer a rest.
