Dirk is coming back for another year.

But the bigger news out of that announcement is that he’s apparently eyeing even going beyond that.

This will be Dirk’s 20th year in the NBA, which is staggering, but Dirk is saying he may be looking at 21 or even 22.

While we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves, Dirk being in the NBA makes everything better, and I welcome him staying as long as he wants.

We’ll see if the Mavs can send him out in style.
