Dirk Nowitzki Eats Ice Cream 'Almost Every Day' Since Retiring, Gained 15 Pounds

After 21 years of keeping his body in playing shape, Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki has spent the early days of retirement enjoying the freedom to eat whatever he wants. And what he wants is ice cream—a lot of it. "I've had ice cream almost every day," Nowitzki revealed during an appearance Wednesday on 105.3 The Fan's Ben & Skin. "The last couple days, I've been trying some suits on, and they just don't fit. ... I'm probably already 15 pounds-plus [heavier]." He added (h/t SportsDay): "It's honestly been one thing after the next. But I'm enjoying it. It's different. Honestly, I have not worked out once since my last game. I'm enjoying not having that pressure of always going to the gym."
