10-time All-Star and 2011 NBA champion Dirk Nowitzki has often evaded the limelight, preferring to be low-key during most of his media spots. The usually stoic Dallas Maverick, however, isn't one to be always serious. After his team was eliminated by the Golden State Warriors in 2007, he told Der Spiegel he was practicing guitar and piano to keep his mind off basketball. The following videos may prove music isn't Nowitzki's calling, but it's nice to see him occasionally take the time off to show the camera some personality. Here are five musical moments in Dirk Nowitzki's career.

During a timeout, the JumboTron at Dallas' American Airlines Center displays Nowitzki dancing rather awkwardly to The Rolling Stones' 1981 hit “Start Me Up.” He's not exactly a dead ringer for Mick Jagger.
