Imitation is the finest form of flattery.
That’s how Twitter user @BdotAdot5 has made a name for himself on the Internet. His player impersonation videos routinely go viral, and he’s become an essential follow for NBA fans across the globe.
His latest subject: Dirk Nowitzki.

From the one-legged fades, to the awkward running, to briefly showing off some soccer moves, to his trademark “double drei” celebration (after doing just about anything), the impression is spot-on… even down to the very last clip.
It’s so spot-on, in fact, that Nowitzki himself retweeted the video. Consider the flattery appreciated.
