Valeri Nichushkin has a very big friend



Here’s your unlikely photo of the day. Valeri Nichushkin playing cornhole with Dirk Nowitzki. Keep in mind – Val is a big guy. He looks like a kid standing next to Dirk.

Why would Big Val be playing cornhole with Dirk Nowitzki over the Fourth of July holiday? Well, keep in mind, Big Val played a few years in Dallas, in the same building Dirk did for the Mavericks. It’s obvious they are friends. I’m not sure where this picture was taken, but it appears it would be Colorado, based on those cornhole boards.
