Watch small, old security guard box out Dirk Nowitzki (VIDEO)

Jan 14, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

Even in the season of a not smooth return to the game, Thursday night was not exactly Dirk Nowitzki‘s best night — 7-of-21 shooting and his Mavericks needed overtime to beat the Sacramento Kings.

Oh, and Dirk got boxed out by a tiny, old security guard.

With less than a minute to go in a two-point game the referees were reviewing a call and Dirk wanted to interject something into the conversation. And in what is a very funny moment, he just gets boxed out by the old security guard. The best part is Dirk is having fun with it, too.

Thanks to The Big Lead for finding this first.

    This is hilarious, thanks for posting. I love the unassuming look on his face as he dutifully fulfills his obligation.

    But thinking outside the box…hey Cubes, that security guard might have better instincts around the hoop than some of the Mavs big men. Might wanna place a call. Gonna have to grab the Phoenix training staff, though.

    Cool to see they both have a sense of humor about it.

    Damn Hero Ball. Dirk should’ve used a screen.
