THE PERFECT SHOT covers the story of Nowitzki's rise to the peaks of fame starting off at one of Germany's regional basketball leagues. It's the story of the fascinating relationship with Holger Geschwindner, his discoverer, coach and mentor. The physicist recognized young Dirk Nowitzki's talent early on and, with a mix of ambitious daring and scientific precision, led him all the way to the top. It is a Film about Dirk Nowitzki and Holger Geschwindner: how they became who they are. It is about the unique relationship between the cosmopolitan mentor and his timid student, who made it to where his teacher had previously only dreamed of: the NBA Championship.Written by
A perfect shot for us to see Dirk journey from Germany to the NBA, from a nobody to a most distinguished international player in the league, and all the ups and downs throughout his career. This gave us an introduction of how his style of game is built and has evolved. Also, it depicts every aspect of his life on and off the court, and let us understand him for more than a player from the mouths of every close people around him.
The biggest takeaway I would say is "being in" the process and story how Dallas changed Dirk and Dirk changed Dallas by the director's art of work.
Definitely a must-see for Dirk's and Dallas Mavericks fans.
