Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings will present a key to the city to Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki.

Dirk is being honored for his professional achievements in his 20 seasons with the Mavericks organization and his outstanding contributions to the community.

He's only the third person to receive a key to the city from Mayor Rawlings during his more than seven years in office.

The presentation will happen during halftime of Wednesday night's Mavericks game at the American Airlines Center.
